Borana Ranch sits on the foothills of the mighty Mount Kenya, with the snow-tipped peaks to the south and a panorama of mountains and rugged desert to the north. This idyllic setting provides all the luxury and adventure for an unforgettable African experience.
SAFARI EXPERIENCE at Borana Ranch
Guests can encounter African wildlife up close on horse-back, on foot and even on night drives when the game is most active. Home to the Big 5 – leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo and rhino, roaming freely in their natural environment, as well as other abundant wildlife and endangered species such as wild dog, patas monkey and striped hyena, Borana is a teeming hub of life. Located among an endangered acacia ecosystem, with high-altitude equatorial cedar and fig forest and translucent glacial pools to explore, guests can enjoy unique wildlife experiences, and because of the altitude, Borana is malaria free! Be it walking through the bush, riding on ranch horses, driving in open-top safari vehicles, or lounging at the infinity pool and enjoying an afternoon massage, a typical Borana day of adventure and luxury is rounded off with a toast to the sunset, a sundowner in hand on the original Pride Rock (from the Lion King) overlooking a most spectacular view.

WILDLIFE CONSERVATION & SOCIAL UPLIFTMENT
In partnership with Open Africa for sustainable tourism.
Borana Ranch is one of the original pioneer ‘eco’ lodges in East Africa, where surrounding communities are sustained and naturally occurring game and ecosystems are conserved by the income generated by the lodge. From the outset, Borana has been dedicated to working alongside its neighbours to preserve the natural environment and to promote economic and social improvements in the area.
Guests that visit Borana are supporting cutting-edge and effective conservation efforts and community development projects in the area, as ALL of the revenue generated through Borana goes towards achieving their community and conservation commitments in order to secure the long-term future of Africa.
