DAY-TO-DAY ITINERARY

DAY 1

BORANA LODGE - LAIKIPIA

Breakfast at Sweetwaters Camp will be waiting for you following a good night's rest after completing the For Rangers Ultra-Marathon. After breakfast, you will be collected by a driver and private vehicle and transferred to Laikipia's Borana Conservancy (journey time approx. 1hr 30mins). Borana was the birthplace of For Rangers and a visit here is a great way to get a feel for where the story began. The conservancy is one of Kenya's newest rhino conservancies and is at the forefront of the incredible conservation work being done in Laikipia. Rhino sightings here are excellent and there is lots of amazing wildlife to see including lion, elephants, leopard, buffalo, cheetah and much more. There is also a fantastic selection of other activities to include during a visit here (listed below). 

DAY 2 & 3

BORANA LODGE - LAIKIPIA

Day 2 & 3 are yours to spend at leisure with daily game drives included in your stay. The conservancy is absolutely beautiful your days exploring it is often immensely rewarding. With fantastic activities to enjoy and an abundance of wildlife to find, days here are never boring. Equally, for those seeking rest and relaxation, the lodge is the ideal place to sit back and unwind. There are superb views onto a nearby watering hole if you prefer to do your game viewing from a comfy chair or the swimming pool with a drink in your hand!

Our suggestion: Take the opportunity to explore the area with a guide and 4x4. Horse riding safaris are also a great way to see Borana. If your legs are up to it, go rhino tracking on foot with a specialist ranger or track lions using telemetry. One evening we can arrange sundowners on 'Pride Rock' followed by a private candle-lit dinner under the stars in the African bush.

DAY 4

Depart

The morning of your departure you will have breakfast before a game drive en route to the nearby airstrip. A flight to Nairobi Wilson Airport is included (journey time approx. 1hr 10mins). In Nairobi, you will be met by a driver and transferred to the international airport. For later international flights a day-room at a hotel or afternoon visit to a restaurant can be arranged (not included).

Would you like to include some beach rest and relaxation? See our suggested itinerary extensions here.

 

DAY 1,2 & 3

Borana Lodge

Borana Lodge sits the heart of Laikpia’s Borana Conservancy. The lodge sits on a picturesque hill overlooking a large waterhole, the rolling hills of the conservancy and the jagged peaks of nearby Mount Kenya.

Borana is one of Kenya’s newest and most successful rhino sanctuaries and one of the best places in Africa to see rhinos in their natural habitat. Wildlife on the conservancy is abundant, all of the ‘big 5’ can be found on the conservancy as well as a plethora of other iconic African species. Activities available from the lodge include and exceed your typical daily game drives or walks.

The Borana ethos ‘all for conservation’ is more than just an emotive slogan. Since 2007 all retained profits from Borana Lodge have been reinvested into the ongoing conservation efforts required to maintain a wildlife safe haven.

During your stay at Borana Lodge, there is plenty of opportunities to see first-hand where the money you have spent on your holiday is helping out. Whether discussing the perils of wildlife protection with Borana’s brave anti-poaching unit, learning how to track and monitor Borana’s rhino or simply taking in the product of successful conservation from a 4x4 - a stay in Borana promises to be a fulfilling experience for all.
