Laragai sits on the edge of a plateau on Borana ranch, overlooking the Northern Frontier to the north and Lewa Downs to the east, whilst the snow capped peaks of Mt. Kenya lie to the south. It is the ultimate home from home, designed for groups of friends or families who want to 'get away from it all'.
Opulent interiors invite fun and relaxation, whilst the grounds have a spectacular heated pool, tennis court and garden games such as croquet and boules. Activities from Laragai include adventurous walks and drives to seek out Borana's wildlife, or horse rides around the extensive landscapes that characterise this area of Kenya. Families with children especially enjoy going down to the waterfalls on the ranch with a picnic, or visiting the local community projects in Borana's neighbouring villages. Laragai makes an ideal party house for anniversaries or birthdays and is the perfect retreat for family holidays.
Only available on an exclusive basis, Laragai can sleep 12 adults and 4 children in total, in 6 large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and 2 children's rooms with a shared bathroom. The unusually large drawing room has open fireplaces at both ends and plenty of space for large groups. Dinner is usually enjoyed in the large separate dining room, whilst breakfast and lunch are served on an elevated deck with panoramic views, or in the cool shade of the pool house.

What a perfect selection for us!! A little R and R from jeep riding .... THE MOST GORGEOUS spot!!!! Shangri La in the middle of nowhere!!!!! Here the accomodations were THE BEST..... I am quite sure it was THE FAVOURITE home for all of us!!!! The food was delicious and the staff the most wonderful.... we loved every minute there...We did a visit to a Maasai village and were welcomed so nicely... what a fabulous visit...just wonderful people and we were even invited into their home!!! A very special memory for those of us that went to visit. We also went horseback riding... we were able to get so close to the giraffe!! We also went on a nite game drive... earlier in the day 4 lioness killed a baby giraffe and we were able to track them and see them with the kill. 16 lions were 'fed' ... this includes small and large cubs... each time we were out in the keeps I was amazed how very close we were to the animals and they continued with their daily activities as though we were not even there!!!
