Our rooms at Borana were above and beyond our expectations just given the size of the rooms, how nice the rooms and bathrooms were, the lovely fires that were lit in each of our rooms every night and then connecting our room with our daughters’ room was an outdoor living room area with a large comfortable couch, great chairs and a fire pit that they also lit for us every night. The view from the living room and our rooms was the watering hole down below where baboons, elephants, giraffes and lions drank. After dinner (which was always an incredible experience with superb hosting by Sam and Flick) we would then go to our own “living room” with my parents and daughters and play charades or just hang out. There was a bar in the living room that was well stocked with things for everyone. Borana was probably everyone’s favorite, which is saying a lot given that the other places were fantastic.
A real luxury lodge in an amazing area. Very impressed with the variety of activities on offer including horse riding for beginners (even for our 5 year old), game walk, waterfall visit, and of course great game drives. Our guide Albert was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we all had a great time.
Borana was 5/5, wish we’d had longer. Ben the guide, and the team who run it, were real stand-outs. Would def go back.
