Quick Take-Aways From Borana:
- Borana Lodge is All for Conservation - they invest all retained earnings into the core operational costs of Borana Conservancy meaning that each guest stay has a tangible impact on the various conservation efforts across Borana Conservancy and beyond
- More Than Just Game Drives - as Borana Lodge is on a private conservancy there is a huge amount of flexibility with the activities they can offer. Along with the traditional game drives and bush walks, they offer mountain biking, farm visits, horse riding for all experience levels, school visits, village visits, behind the scenes of conservation activities and more
- Behind the Scenes of Conservation - Borana is the only conservancy in Kenya to offer authentic experiences which run side by side with conservation efforts. Guests can join rangers on their evening deployment or help to track black and white rhino on foot at first light. Both of these experiences allow guests to join rangers on their daily activities, giving a true behind the scenes insight into how a successful rhino conservancy is run
- Rhino Success Story - Borana Conservancy introduced black rhino in 2013 and in 2014 dropped the fences to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to the East – forming one of the largest continuous rhino habitats in East Africa. Today, the Borana-Lewa Landscape is home to 130 black and 122 white rhino. Borana Conservancy is also home to The Big Five, cheetah and now Wild Dog!
- Sustainability at the Heart - Borana has been members of The Long Run since 2015 and in 2019 became a GER® - this is one of the most rigorous sustainability audits in hospitality today, encompassing Community, Culture, Conservation and using Commerce as a force for good. The sustainability journey goes beyond recycling plastic bottles and ensures that their guests have the lightest footprint on the environment as possible, all the while enhancing ecosystem integrity and building local livelihoods
