The Borana Conservancy – that aims to be carbon neutral by 2024 – is where Lengishu sits, welcoming up to a dozen guests to share in the surrounding 32,000 acres. You’re never short of things to do; horseback safaris, tours of Pride Rock (yes, Simba’s Pride Rock) and assisting a ranger checking up on both the black and white rhinos living in the sanctuary fill the schedule. But if you ask us, time here isn’t complete without accompanying Nissa, one of only 59 Silver guides in Kenya with over 20 years’ experience, on a trek that proudly shows off the natural beauty of his homeland.
January to March is hot and dry with the long rains usually falling from April to early June. Between June and October it is warm and dry during the day but cold at night. The migration usually arrives in the Mara from July with river crossings from Tanzania generally taking place between July and September.

Nairobi is pleasant year round due to its altitude.
