A Kenya Safari Holiday, part of which is spent at a Private Game Lodge called Borana adjacent to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy may not in the beginning seem to be what you are searching for, because Borana is likely a name you are unfamiliar with.
You are going to spend a fortune taking any African safari Trip, especially one at the luxury end of the scale, so it is very well worth your while doing a lot of research before committing your money cash to a safari picked as you liked an image in a catalogue. The best Private Game Lodges are very often not in the popular holiday catalogues
Choosing a Kenya Safari as part of your Holiday in Kenya can be awkward, and then in addition to that there can sometimes be a bewildering choice of accommodation from Camps to Lodges. More frequently than not you will take a package and these choices will be withdrawn of your hands, and this could be a great pity.
The’re Game Lodges, and private Game Lodges, safari camps and luxury camps, and the’re very fashionable and now and again overcrowded game parks, and alternatively places that are less well known, that’s well have all the game you could want to view with no other motor vehicles in sight at present.
The’re game lodges where you will pile into a mini bus for a game drive, and others where you have your own 4×4 with your own individual educated guide who will go where you would like to visit.
With this in mind, study Borana Lodge at the foot of Mount Kenya roughly 6500 feet above sea level, and only sixteen miles from the equator.
Your short term Kenya Safari Holiday Home at Borana Private Game Lodge has six cottages, so it is small, a good thing as far as it meaning personal attention. There are two cottages with large double beds, and four with Queen sized beds. They’re all situated well for privacy, and views from their verandahs, and each has an hearth, and ensuite bathrooms.
At Borana there’s a choice of available activities which includes Game drives accompanied by rangers and trackers who know all there’s to know and more to do with everything that moves and even stuff that stands still, like trees, flowers, and bushes.
You may take game walks with a seasoned guide.
You will have night Game Drives and you will be staggered at the pursuits of those nocturnal creatures you encounter.
You can explore the 35000 acre ranch on horseback.
Eat farm fresh cooked bush meals wherever and whenever your fancy takes you.
On returning to Borana Lodge you can relax and unwind in the pool which has lovely views over the valley below.
Likewise you can choose trips to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy specifically to see the black and white rhino who are protected here.
You can take professionally guided walking safaris.
Above all else don’t forget that whilst you are on a Kenya Safari Holiday, living in some luxury at Borana private game lodge, that Borana is not just a game sanctuary it is also a working ranch, so spend some time to be shown round and try to understand the challenges facing people who live and work in what are pretty hostile conditions, where risky game such as lions and elephants cause damage and death on a regular basis.
Borana Private Game Lodge is a very different way to spend part of your Kenya Safari Holiday, but its situation alongside the Lewa Conservancy gives you the opportunity of a lifetime to see and do things unusual.
