Borana - Kenya

Lodge stay

5 star rating   17 October 2018

Black Rhino who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. The most amazing, magical experience ever!!!! | All the horses were very well turned out, looked after and well fed. They all lead nicely and once ridden, they had the next day off for a rest. If you did find a favourite, then the guides would try to make sure you were matched on a fairly regular basis. The guides themselves were extremely knowledgeable and great fun to be with.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The pictures and description on both on Borana's web site and In the saddle brochure are a true reflection of the accommodation you will get. The rooms are very spacious with teriffic views, especially when watching the sunrise in the morning.

The food is fantastic and Borana caters for all (vegetarians, Vegans etc). Never short of food from Breakfast until your evening meal including the drinks!!

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I don't think In the Saddle can. I have travelled twice now with In the Saddle and found the staff extremely knowledgeable, happy to help with any further information you require and try to accommodate any reasonable requests you may have. The information provided has been more than adequate. Very happy to travel with In the Saddle again!!!


How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

For me personally, there are no further ways I can think of that In the Saddle can improve on. I have found them to be perfection!! I have been very well looked after from the time of booking my special holiday to the day I arrived home. Keep up the outstanding service!!!


Do you have any other feedback for us?

I have had the most amazing holiday experience ever and I have already promoted Borana Lodge just by showing my fabulous photos to friends. This place just keeps giving and gets better and better each day. To the wonderful fit horses and their friendly guides, to the very knowledgeable 'personal' Jeap Safari guides allocated to you, to the very important Rhino deployment/tracking military guides that keep the Black Rhino's safe from poachers (this extends to all the animals), the abundance of wild animals at Borana, to all the staff that work so very hard to accommodate you. Amazing!!!
