Our History

Laragai House is surrounded by green lush gardens, a thatched roof, open fire places and panoramic views of the conservancy. The house was built in 1993 as the first private home to be built on the conservancy for the Cecil Family as their home away from home.  Laragai House was enjoyed as a private home for many years until 2006 when the family decided to open it up for commercial use.

Andy Roberts, a longtime friend of Borana Conservancy and Director of The Safari and Conservation Company built the house and was passionate to bring the brothers’ vision to life. Andy and his wife Caragh lived in what can only be described as a shed on the site for nearly three years while the house was being built. Both their children were born during this time and double strength wire had to be used on the windows to help protect their young children from the resident leopards.

Over the years, the house has been improved, renovated and expanded with a new cottage recently finished in 2018. In 2015, Laragai House was bought by the current owners, George and Lucilla Stephenson who to continue to make improvements to their home.
