BORANA CONSERVANCY

With beautiful landscape and incredible views, the Borana conservancy is a shining example of how important conservation is for the Kenyan economy and community at large

Overlooking the Samangua valley, the Lewa plains, including the Ngare Ndare Forest and Mount Kenya, this location provides the ultimate off road adventure.

Nature and sports lovers will enjoy a ride on mountain bikes through the conservancy with frequent sightings of Giraffe, Gazelles and Zebra. However my camera man was laughing hysterically at how bad i am at riding a bicycle and I’m pretty sure i heard a Zebra ‘hee haw’ at me as I wobbled past! Hmph…i still had to worry about being cool despite being in the bush 😦

Or experience the ultimate safari on horse back ,where you can get pretty close to the wildlife around. I never got to ask if it’d work with a Pride of Lions though! Erm…probably NOT!

From fly fishing, to buggies and quad bike safaris as well as paragliding for the more daring, a stay at Borana Lodge is never dull!

A visit to the Ngare Ndare forest will be memorable though i admit i was grumbling and sweating all the way up and down the trek. But I quickly changed my tune once i got to the main attractions *insert gasp here* It started off with a trek to the natural rock pool, a serene safe haven, where you can actually jump off the rock into the deep waters below very safely and enjoy a forest pool swim. Another steep trek down will get you to the stunning waterfall, which the British army use as part of their training .

Ngare ndare forest promises a very unique forest canopy walk, unlike most bush or forest walks, this takes place on a 400 meter long stretch whilst your route is suspended above the ground. There have been many times nature enthusiasts have been walking above with elephants roaming around below. Erm…just hope the Elephant don’t stay put for hours below you, otherwise that would be awkward!
