LAIKIPIA, KENYA – DELUXE
Nestled in the valley between the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya and the rolling peaks of the Aberdare Mountains, Solio Lodge promises to be Kenya’s most luxurious new opening in 2010. The Lodge is located on the Solio Reserve, which part of a private ranch, and is home to a diverse and numerous population of wildlife, including both black and white rhino, which is a rarity.
Exclusivity, privacy, exceptional game viewing and luxurious accommodation are the hallmark at Solio.
Solio Game Ranch is recognised as the most successful private rhinoceros breeding reserve in Kenya, and is today home to over 74 Black Rhinoceros and 155 White Rhinoceros, which live in harmony with other wildlife including buffalo, zebra, giraffe and plains game such as eland, oryx, impala, waterbuck, Thompson’s gazelle and warthog. Cats include lion, leopard and cheetah (Solio has some of the best leopard viewing in the country).
The lodge has just six cosy and luxurious rooms, each en-suite with large glass pane windows to take in the panoramic views of the landscape, which is framed by Mount Kenya. Each room has a private lounge area warmed by a corner fire, as well as large bathrooms with double sink, bath and shower. The rooms are designed for warmth (Solio is high in altitude and can be cold at night), as well as outdoor living with each having a deck in front for relaxation during the day.
Solio Lodge boasts excellent standards of guiding, cuisine and personalised hosting. Activities at Solio include horseback riding, walking, game drives, fishing trips to Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains.
