SPECIAL OFFER: Borana Rhino Conservation Safari

This superb 3 night fly-in safari to the wonderful Laikipia Plateau stays at the luxurious Borana Lodge. This not-for-profit conservancy is home to the Living with Lions project and is known for making great strides in rhino conservation with black and white rhino at home here. Your stay includes a range of activities from morning and afternoon 4x4 game drives on Borana to guided bush walks, horse-riding and cycling. The optional conservation activities include meeting the anti-poaching rangers, joining them on a deployment or witnessing darting, collaring and monitoring work (if it should coincide with your visit). Guests are also invited to visit the Rhino Dog Squad (+£90 pp for Lewa Conservation Fee - includes day's safari & picnic at neighbouring Lewa Conservancy).

Extend your stay - all our safaris are tailormade. We think Borana combines brilliantly with a visit to the Masai Mara and/or Samburu. Please see our sample itinerary Wild Kenya for inspiration.

Special Offer - book by 31 March 2017 to take advantage of this Real Africa exclusive stay 3 nights for the price of 2 offer. All stays help us raise money for the Rangers and the Dog Squads working to keep Borana and Lewa's rhinos safe.

For every 3 night minimum booking for 2 people at Borana Lodge, the Real Africa Trust will make a donation of £50 per person to the Save the Rhino charity which in turn supports the anti-poaching Dog Squads which are working so successfully in the battle against poaching. Borana is a not-for-profit conservancy dedicated to the sustainable conservation of land and wildlife.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1-3

Borana Conservancy
This morning you fly from Nairobi's Wilson airport on a short flight to Lewa Downs Airstrip. On arrival at the airstrip you are met by rangers from Borana and transferred to the lodge, enjoying a wonderful game drive through the beautiful Lewa Conservancy home to a plethora of wildlife including all the Big Five. There is time to relax in the afternoon before heading out on a game drive for sunset. Lewa and Borana are two separate wildlife conservancies, with no fence between them. Together they create 94,000 acres of contiguous ecosystem with the ability to support over 100 rhino. Both are making great strides working with the local community, other conservancies and each other to conserve Kenya's wildlife. The conservancies in particular are a sanctuary for black and white rhino although you will see a great variety of wildlife, including predators such as lion and leopard and rare species like Grevy's Zebra. Vehicles are equipped with identification booklets and profiles on all the rhinos and as well as specific rhino conservation activities there are many other exciting opportunities for visitors to take advantage of. Over the next few days enjoy exploring this wonderful place, guided by Borana's expert rangers, including a chance to witness firsthand the vital efforts being made to conserve rhino. You can join a deployment, chat with Sam Taylor, who heads up the anti-poaching unit here, witness darting (if any is scheduled during your visit), and assist the rangers with their conservation tasks. We thoroughly recommend spending one day on the Lewa Conservancy where the anti-poaching Dog Squad is based - go out for the day, complete with a picnic lunch, join an exercise with the dog squad and learn about how the dogs are crucial to the battle against poaching, while also enjoying a superb safari on Lewa of course! Game drives, bush walks, mountain biking, horse riding and superb sundowner excursions are just some of the activities included during your stay at Borana. There is also a wonderful swimming pool with views over the valley and the food here is a real highlight. Everything is included with regards to your food and drink so you can really indulge and enjoy the hospitality.

DAY 4

Return to Nairobi
Today after breakfast enjoy a game drive to Lewa Downs where you will meet your flight and return to Nairobi.
