Kenya’s newest and most successful rhino sanctuary, this lodge is set against a beautiful hillside with an organic design with panoramic views, established in 1993 as one of the original small eco-lodges in East Africa.

In 2007, the Dyer family, founded Borana Lodge and made a conscious decision to commit all retained earnings from the commercial activities on Borana Conservancy to supporting the increased costs of conservation with a commitment to secure habitat for Rhino and  underwrite all core conservation costs long into the future.

When you stay at this Lodge you make a direct contribution to conservation, allowing the lodge to continue on this truly sustainable journey, committing all profits to securing conservation integrity.
