The heart of Borana Conservancy
At Borana Lodge we have conservation at the heart of everything we do. With the 4C framework we strive to have a positive impact on Community, Culture, Conservation and use Commerce as a force for good. We are striving for transparency throughout each step of your safari experience to show that this truly is travelling with a purpose.
We encourage our guests to get a true “behind the scenes” view of Borana Conservancy. By tracking rhino on foot at first light, joining our rangers in CrossFit training or touring Waitabit Farm to learn about regenerative farming practices, guests are given the opportunity to be truly immersed in the running of a successful rhino conservation area.
At Borana Lodge we are proud to prioritise local employment, with most of our team coming from the villages and communities surrounding Borana Conservancy. We believe that sustainable development starts with empowering our neighbouring communities and building local livelihoods. By embracing the principles of sustainability and responsible tourism, the lodge not only offers unforgettable wildlife experiences to guests but also contributes to the welfare and development of local people. By offering a range of employment opportunities, from lodge staff to specialized conservation roles, we actively contribute to the local economy while fostering a deep connection to the land and its wildlife. The hospitality team at Borana Lodge is led by Milli, Lawrence and Tatiana, who make sure that each stay is tailored to your needs.
Borana Lodge is committed to having as light a footprint as possible, the lodge is entirely solar-powered and has an extensive recycling scheme with a zero landfill policy. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and have a measuring system in place in partnership with Weeva, a sustainable measuring platform which helps us to implement reduction targets across each aspect of the 4Cs.
