Borana Lodge

Intimate and exclusive, Borana Lodge is perched on the slope of a hidden valley overlooking a waterhole, where many animals come to drink. It was here that the Disney animators came to draw their inspiration for the Lion King. Built mainly from fallen cedar, and almost wholly constructed from natural materials, the lodge blends with the craggy stone outcrops of the escarpment and appears to grow organically from the hillside. Large windows in the drawing room allow wide panoramic views across the arid grasslands and all the interior spaces use and reflect the light and space of the surrounding plains. The decorations echo the use of natural materials, soft tones, African prints, and a variety of polished woods. Set on the edge of the Samangua Valley with panoramic views of Mount Kenya and Kenya’s Northern Frontier, this 35,000 acre working ranch lies just 16 miles north of the equator, at an altitude 6,500 ft.
