Inspiring Mindful and Sustainable Travel Since 1993
Established in 1993 as one of East Africa's original eco-lodges, the Lodge has played a crucial role in sustaining Borana Conservancy and preserving essential habitats for endangered species. In 2007, the Dyer family, founders of Borana Lodge, decided to allocate all retained earnings from commercial activities on Borana Conservancy to support increased conservation costs.
During a critical period marked by rampant rhino poaching and the closure of sanctuaries, Borana dedicated additional secure habitat for rhinos and committed to covering core conservation costs well into the future.
When you choose to stay at Borana Lodge, you directly contribute to conservation efforts. Your support allows them to sustain a truly responsible journey, channelling all profits towards maintaining conservation integrity. Your stay not only offers you a luxurious experience but also helps safeguard endangered species and their habitats.
