Borana Lodge is steeped in history and style.  Located at the heart of Borana Conservancy, Kenya’s newest and most successful rhino sanctuary, Borana Lodge is set against a beautiful hillside with an organic design and panoramic views throughout.

The Lodge was established in 1993 as one of the original small eco lodges in East Africa and has since been the prime economic driver that has enabled us to secure important habitat for endangered species. 

In 2007 the Dyer family made a conscious and important decision to commit all retained earnings from our commercial activities on Borana to supporting the increased costs of conservation.

At a time in our history when Rhino poaching was at its worst and sanctuaries were closing we committed additional secure habitat for Rhino and to underwrite core conservation costs long into the future.

By staying at Borana as our guest you are making a direct contribution that will allow us to continue on a truly sustainable journey, committing profits to securing conservation integrity for future generations.
