Located at the foot of Mt Kenya at 6,500ft Borana Conservancy provides a unique and diverse habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. In 2013, a founding population of 21 Black Rhino were introduced. Once they were settled, Borana and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy were integrated to form one landscape; 92,000 acres of unspoilt wilderness. The largest contiguous black rhino habitat in East Africa.

Together with Lewa, we now host a thriving community of 87 Black Rhino and 79 White Rhino.

Borana Lodge is the original property on Borana Conservancy with eight thatched cottages each in built from local and sustainable resources in their own unique style. 

Visiting Borana Lodge not only directly benefits local livelihoods and enhances ecosystem integrity, it also funds all core operating costs - all retained earnings from Borana Lodge are directly invested in conservation. This includes the recurrent training and support of over 100 wildlife rangers who protect and monitor over nine highly endangered species. 

As well as being a conservation area, Borana is home to the largest permaculture projects in East Africa. Nestled on the eastern bank of the Ngare Ndare River sits Kabati Regenerative Farm, 440 acres of Riverine Forest, Acacia Savannah and a 100 acres of arable land. This farm provides the entire conservancy with fresh, organic, slow food which is not only good for one's health but also good for the soul.

For Rangers

Rather than just tell the story – the For Rangers teams began by taking part in some of the hardest, most challenging endurance events on the planet, in order to draw attention not only to the plight of Africa’s wildlife and the poaching crisis but importantly, the hardships and dangers the rangers are exposed to in trying to protect our wildlife. For Rangers primary goal has always and will always be to raise funds that go directly support Africa's Rangers. The For Rangers team consists of individuals from across the globe. To date, the For Rangers family have taken part in some of the world’s toughest ultra-marathons: The Marathon des Sables in Morocco, The Jungle Ultra in Peru, Fire & Ice in Iceland, as well as numerous marathons, half-marathons, and Tough Mudders. A team has completed the Yukon 1,000 – a 10-day 1000-mile kayak down the Yukon River and another has endured a similar distance over ten days in the Mongolian Derby. To date over $3m has been raised and used to meet the needs of the Rangers on the frontline of protecting wildlife in Africa. ​ More recently, For Rangers' co-founder Sam Taylor has paired up with travel expert Charlie Potter to expand the For Rangers brand into the travel sector. For Rangers Adventures is a partner of the For Rangers charity campaign and offers an innovative expert-led planning and booking platform for safari-goers passionate about making a positive impact by booking their travel. 40% of travel generated profit is committed by For Rangers Adventures to the causes supported by For Rangers - a bigger commitment to conservation than any other travel company in the world. For Rangers Adventures holidays come with full ATOL protection and the option to make your entire trip carbon-neutral and even carbon-negative. Visit their website here.

Save The Rhino International

Since 2001, Save the Rhino has grown from a small charity raising £300,000 a year, to where we are today, raising around £2,000,000 for programmes in six African and two Asian countries, for all five species of rhino. Over 20 years from our humble beginnings with a big vision, our small team of nine still hold true to Dave’s founding principle that the money we raise “will be most effectively spent”. We work with expert partners and use tested technologies and relevant scientific research to ensure our investments in rhino conservation have the greatest impact. We pride ourselves on the fact that we do not simply follow the latest fads but make sure that all our funding decisions are nuanced and well-researched, and in the best interests of rhinos and the people who protect them.
