Borana Safari Lodge in Kenya is set on the edge of the Samangua Valley with panoramic views of Mount Kenya and Kenya’s Northern Frontier. Borana Safari Lodge in Kenya is a small, luxurious family-hosted lodge with an horizon pool.
Borana Safari Lodge in Kenya is situated on a 35,000 acre ranch 17 miles north of the equator, with an altitude of 6,000 feet; a haven for a wide diversity of wildlife: Lion, Elephant, Jackson’s Hartebeest, Buffalo, Reticulated Giraffe, Patas monkeys and great herds of antelope roam the plains while the cool forest shelters bush buck, Colobus monkeys and Leopard.
Borana Safari Lodge in Kenya was built in 1992 by local artisans. Only local building materials and dead wood from the ranch were used in its construction. The result is a supremely comfortable and luxurious lodge which is totally in keeping with its surroundings; it seems to have grown organically from the rocks on which it was built.
Borana Safari Lodge in Kenya overlooks a dam which fills with the floodwater flowing off the surrounding hills. Its the local watering hole for all the wildlife in the area so there is constant activity for the guests to watch. There is also a game blind built right on the edge of the dam so that visitors may go down and see the activity at close range: Elephant swimming is a favourite.
Cattle ranching in Lion country is challenging and staff at the ranch successfully protect livestock by building secure bomas (enclosures) for the cattle at night. There are four Lions on the ranch that are fitted with radio collars for their movements to be monitored. In this way we can learn how to better the protection of the cattle, camels, sheep and horses from their depredation. About a hundred head of livestock each year is lost to Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Hyena and Jackal.
