Fodor's Review

The traditional Borana cattle ranch—a part of Kenyan highland history—was given a whole new lease on life with eight luxuriously spacious and well-appointed cottages. Private verandas offer views of large numbers of resident game that come to drink at the lake in front of the lodge in a landscape that has attracted countless artists and photographers. Visitors are given an added opportunity to sample ranch life with some of Africa's most spectacular horseback safaris. Aerial tours (in small planes or helicopters—a part of daily life in these remote areas) at neighboring Lewa Downs are a regular part of any visit to beautiful Borana. The rate includes conservation fees.
