Borana is a stunning lodge set in its own ranch, which has been privately owned by the Dyer family for three generations. With a vast swathe of wilderness and few ‘park’ rules, Borana treats its guests to an exclusive safari experience and a wide array of activities, while staying in understated luxury. And the views from the front of the lodge are something to behold.

Our view of Borana

Although it's all very informal, and a bit like a rambling family home, Borana is a highly professional setup that runs seamlessly. Part of its charm is the unfussy style, and the fact that guests are encouraged by the delightful hosts and staff to relax and treat the place as if they'd lived here for years. We love this lodge, and although it may not be ideal if you're looking for wall-to-wall wildlife, it will suit you if you'd like the chance to get out of a vehicle and experience the bush in a variety of ways. The arrival of translocated black rhinos in 2013 – very visible as you move around – has also added a serious new string to Borana's bow.
