The only guest accommodations within the magnificent private Solio Game Reserve, Solio Lodge provides an intimate and luxurious safari experience.
The lodge consists of five contemporary cottages with large en-suite bathrooms with a double sink, bathtub, and shower. Each cottage has the added luxury of a private deck and panoramic views of the nearby hills and Mount Kenya in the distance. Floor to ceiling windows afford stunning, wide-ranging views and the opportunity to spot a rhino without getting out of bed. Guests can lounge indoors on comfy chairs around a cozy fire or from the privacy of their sundeck. There is also a family unit encompassing one twin cottage and one double cottage with a shared living area. Other amenities include hand-made Kenyan toiletries, dressing gowns, slippers and hair dryers in every room, as well as in-room safes, mini bars, mini fridges, and tea/coffee facilities.
Solio Lodge is nestled in a valley between the majestic slopes of Mt Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains and part of the Solio Conservancy. The 45,000-acre Solio Reserve is internationally well-known as the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in Kenya with over 74 black and 155 white rhinoceros living here. Other wildlife species found in the reserve include buffalo, zebra, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game such as eland, oryx, impala, waterbuck, thompson’s gazelle, and warthog. The lodge promotes conservation efforts and education of the local area and provides funding from guest’s fees for giving back to the community.
