The Family Safari Experience
Borana Lodge offers a unique family safari experience that combines adventure, education, and relaxation. Our experienced guides will lead you on captivating nature walks and thrilling game drives, where you'll encounter Kenya's magnificent wildlife up close. Imagine the excitement on your children's faces as they spot a majestic lion or a graceful giraffe in it’s natural habitat.
We understand that family safaris should be fun and educational for children too. That's why we've created the Borana Kid’s activity book. This special exercise book introduces children to the wonders of the African bush while instilling a love for wildlife and conservation guaranteed to keep them busy even throughout the heat of the day. Our knowledgeable guides will engage young minds with fascinating facts about the animals and plants they encounter both at the lodge and beyond. We also encourage all children to visit the Waitabit Permaculture Farm to get an insight into where food comes from and sustainable farming practices. This experience pairs perfectly with a picnic lunch in the shade of a fig tree followed by an exhilarating swim in the Ngare Ndare River.
Along with this we have a number of docile horses which can cater to all riding abilities and take our young guests on rides across the plains, an unforgettable experience for our younger guests.
Your family's safety is our top priority. At Borana Lodge, we take every precaution to ensure a secure and worry-free safari experience. Our expert guides are well-trained in wildlife encounters and are equipped to handle any situation. We also have some of our housekeeping team who are happy to offer child minding services and have been trained in child and infant first aid. You can rest assured that your family is in capable hands.
One of the highlights of a family safari in Kenya is the opportunity to spend time with the "Big Five" – lions, elephants, buffalos, leopards, and rhinos. Borana Conservancy is home to all of these iconic species, including both black and white rhinos, and our guides are experts at tracking and spotting them. The thrill of seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat is an experience your family will treasure forever.
