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. 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.
The lodge has five contemporary luxurious cottages with private decks and panoramic views of the nearby hills and Mount Kenya in the distance. Each room has a private lounge area with open fire for cooler evenings, as well as large en-suite bathrooms with a double sink, bath and shower. Solio Lodge takes full advantage of its spectacular surroundings. Vast floor-to-ceiling windows frame distant Mount Kenya and outdoor sundecks afford panoramic views. One of our luxurious cottages can be turned into an interconnected family unit with two en-suite bedrooms, sleeping up to five guests.Dinner is often served outside under the stars within sight of grazing waterbuck, zebras, and impalas. Our chefs use fresh organic ingredients from Solio Lodge’s own vegetable garden.
