Solio Lodge

Safari Collection


 

Overview

Solio Lodge is located on the Solio Reserve, which is part of a private ranch, and is home to a diverse and numerous population of wildlife, including both black and white rhino. Solio Game Reserve is internationally recognised as the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in Kenya. The reserve is now home to over 74 Black rhinos and 155 White rhinos, as well as numerous other wildlife species including buffalo, zebra, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game such as eland, oryx, impala, waterbuck, thompson's gazelle and warthog.

An array of activities are available and cater to all energy levels. Soaking in the magnificent beauty of Mount Kenya is definitely an option, but so is walking, mountain biking, trout fishing, horse riding and a 4x4 safari in the rhino sanctuary.

The lodge has just six cosy and luxurious rooms, each ensuite with large glass pane windows to take in the panoramic views of the landscape which is framed by Mount Kenya. You will find some of the best food in all of Kenya at Solio Lodge and these wonderful meals will be enjoyed in the bush, on the deck overlooking a watering hole, in the main dining room, or privately in the comfort of your cottage.
