Lengishu sits on a ridge looking over Borana Conservancy, a successful rhino sanctuary and working ranch. Lengishu was built in 2018 with as little impact on its surroundings as possible: the stones were excavated from the site, the wooden beams are Kenyan teak and gum poles, the walls are rammed earth and local stone.
There are 6 spacious en-suite double rooms in the main house and nearby cottages. The house has a large entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, study, studio and shaded veranda with pizza oven. There’s also a swimming pool, pool house, gym, games room and petanque lawn. The chef creates inventive dishes from locally sourced ingredients, mostly from Borana’s organic farm.
The wealth of activities includes day and night game drives, guided bush walks, rhino tracking on foot, horse riding, mountain biking, and joining the Borana Conservancy anti-poaching team. Visits to Ngare Ndare Forest, local schools and nearby Maasai villages are also on offer.
A stay at Lenguishu acts as a direct contribution to a wide variety of conservation efforts. All retained earnings are invested into community projects which include a mobile clinic, an education support programme benefitting 6 local primary schools and 2 local secondary schools and sponsoring a number of students through tertiary education, along with a community-focused livestock-to-market programme which benefits over 540 community members.
