Borana - Kenya

Lodge stay

5 star rating   8 October 2022

Gillian (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) A truly wonderful experience | Riding at Borana was absolutely wonderful. The horses were in excellent condition, well mannered, and forward going. Our guide Nicholas took us on a different ride every day (we rode for 7 days) . We saw different terrain , lots of animals and had some amazing long canters & fast gallops.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Borana Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. It is everything you could wish for in a Kenyan holiday and more.
All the staff go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. We stayed in Room 2 which had stunning views and watched the sun rise every morning.
The food is to a very high standard with lots of lovely treats ,like home made cakes and cookies.
My daughter had her birthday when we were there and she was presented with a lovely home made cake.

This was our first riding holiday abroad and our first time in Kenya. I am just so pleased we chose In the saddle to book with and decided to go Borana. Everything was perfect.
