Solio Lodge-Kenya

Solio Lodge is located on a private wildlife sanctuary, tucked in the valley between the lofty slopes of Mount Kenya and the peaks of the Aberdare Mountains, directly north of Nairobi. This intimate and luxurious lodge opened in August 2010 and remains the only guest accommodation on the incredible 45,000-acre Solio Game Reserve.
With six large thatched cottages, each individually decorated in a contemporary style and fireplaces to provide warmth on cosy high-altitude nights, Solio Lodge is luxurious and takes full advantage of its spectacular surroundings. Vast floor-to-ceiling windows frame distant Mount Kenya and outdoor sundecks afford panoramic views. Guests meet for dinner, often served outside under the stars within sight of grazing waterbuck, zebras, and impalas. Our chefs use fresh ingredients from Solio Lodge’s own organic vegetable garden.

The Solio Reserve is internationally recognised as the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in Kenya and visitors will find that sightings of up to 40 rhinoceros at a time are not uncommon. The wildlife experience here is intense and exclusive with 19,000 acres of conservancy surrounded by 45,000 acres of ranch and just one lodge – Solio Lodge – in the middle of it.
ACTIVITIES; At Solio Lodge we offer a wide range of activities. Night and day game drives offer guests a chance to see many species including black and white rhinoceros, leopard, lion, cheetah, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, warthog… There are other exciting ways to see the terrain, among them walking, horse riding and mountain biking around Solio Ranch. You can take a helicopter ride to nearby Mount Kenya and enjoy a hilltop picnic breakfast, or go trout fishing in the Aberdare National Park. Back at the Lodge you can relax with the help from our massage therapists who are available for in-room treatments.
