Kenya - Borana

A stay at Borana is a very special holiday. Ride over the 35,000 acre ranch near to Mount Kenya, see a wide diversity of wildlife and stay in a truly luxurious lodge.

Borana would not be the place it is today without horses. When the Dyer family first came here horses were the only means of transport. Now you can enjoy riding over this wonderful place. On morning, afternoon and all day rides you can explore the length and breadth of the ranch and experience the intense excitement of viewing game from horseback.

There is a good selection of horses to suit a wide range of riding abilities, including children. Guest numbers are small and the guides will tailor the riding to suit everyone. There is plenty of faster riding for experienced riders.

If you wish to take a break from riding, then you might opt for a game drive, guided bush walk, mountain biking, perhaps a tandem paragliding experience (weather dependent) or simply relax by the pool and pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment. Night game drives will introduce you to nocturnal birds and animals found on the reserve. Borana is an ideal holiday for mixed groups of riders and non-riders.

Your base is Borana Lodge with its panoramic views. Each of the beautiful guest rooms is quite secluded from its neighbour and luxuriously furnished with an open-fire lit for you in the evening. In the sitting area in the main lodge sofas surround a huge fireplace with picture windows looking onto the valley below. Meals are served at a huge rosewood table in the dining room. All food is freshly prepared in the kitchen with vegetables and produce from the farm, freshly squeezed juice from the orchard and wines from around the world. Roses and lilies grown at Kisima decorate and perfume the rooms.

If you can bear to leave your wonderful room, you might choose to have an exciting night or two under canvas at a fly camp.

A real treat! The lodge is beautiful, with the feel of a lovely bush home and if you can tear yourself away from its comforts then there are also lovely horses and lots of riding to enjoy.

My top tip:

Toiletries, towels, dressing gowns and hairdryers are all provided and the laundry service is very quick so this should help with the 15kgs luggage limit.
