Why stay in a luxury safari lodge in Kenya when you can enjoy the privacy and flexibility of an exclusive family home – with friendly staff to cater for your every need. Lengishu offers the freedom to choose your own itinerary, not bound by the constraints of other safari lodges. Lengishu features six beautifully appointed bedrooms within four cottages, which are situated apart from the main house. All rooms face East over the valley below, offering spectacular sunrise  views. Fish Eagle and Goshawk are standalone double rooms, perfect for couples. The Upper and Lower Cottages work well for guests travelling with young children or couples on safari together, with the bedrooms leading off a shared sitting room that is found at the centre of the cottage. All bedrooms are spacious with fireplaces or wood burning stoves for the cooler evenings, and have en-suite bathrooms with rain showers and freestanding copper bathtubs. Floor to ceiling windows provide majestic views of the undulating plains beyond, perfect for bathtub game viewing.

Playing our part in supporting rhino conservation on Borana Conservancy is a dream come true, born of an enduring passion for Kenya, its wildlife and its amazing people
As a family deeply rooted in Kenya, we stand by the people and wildlife of this land and are invested in their future. We support our partner, The Samburu Trust, by providing physical spaces such as two schools, the Trust Burns Room, the Mamaʼs Beading Workshop, and our Trust Gift Shop to sell their beaded products. We also give our time and expertise for free for assistance on wildlife conflict, medical care, and building water reservoir systems to support the entire ecosystem.
