Lengishu House

Lengishu is a stunning exclusive-use family home on the pioneering Borana Conservancy in Northern Kenya. For varied adventures including tracking rhino on foot – Lengishu has it all! Perched on a ridge with views across the Laikipia plains and deep into the Northern Frontier, Lengishu is made up of a main house, pool house and four separate cottages, creating a private retreat for up to 12 people. Guests have the freedom to choose their own itinerary and are not bound by the constraints of other safari lodges. Activities are in abundance and fully flexible, including private game drives both on land and by air, mountain biking and horse riding through the conservancy, as well as the rare opportunity to help with the conservation efforts by helping to track rhino on foot.

Both Lengishu and Borana Conservancy have sustainability at front of mind - Lengishu is built with locally sourced materials, expertly crafted by local artisans. All the conservation fees paid by Lengishu's guests are invested into the sustainable conservation of land and wildlife notably the endangered black rhino and its habitat. This is something every guest of Lengishu can learn about - how Borana Conservancy supports the conservation of wildlife, empowers the local community and how every stay makes a difference.
