Borana lodge is charming, with well manicured gardens and a homely feel.
Inside the main building is the cosy lounge...
...as well as the bar.
The large infinity pool looks over a waterhole where animals often come down to drink…
… although you may be too busy relaxing to notice!
Help yourself to the inclusive bar...
Lunch is served in the open air dining area above the pool...
... and enjoy the deliciously fresh food from the buffet...
...or perhaps a freshly made pizza.
Breakfast is usually taken outside...
...whereas dinner will be in the beautifully painted dining room.
The rooms are all individual cottages, with spectacular views.
The inside of each is rustic but very comfortable...
... with locally made furniture and a fire place for cool evenings.
Some of the rooms have twin beds...
...some a double...
...though all are handmade and unique...
... and all have lovely views, both from the inside...
...and from outside too.
The bathrooms are incredibly spacious...
...with a shower...
...as well as a bath.
The children's rooms are simple yet fun in design.
The outside veranda is a comfy place to relax.
The birdlife on Borana is rich and varied...
... and there is plenty of big game like this lone buffalo bull.
The rare reticulated giraffe is endemic to this area...
with its beautiful teracotta colours and network pattern.
Borana, however, is most famous for its variety of activities…
…including magnificent stables...
...catering for beginners and the more experienced alike.
Gamewatching on horseback is one of Borana's special activities.
Other pursuits such as walking, or cycling, can also be easily arranged.
