Solio Lodge is nestled in the valley between the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya and the rolling peaks of the Aberdare Mountains, about 100 miles north of Nairobi. The lodge is the only one on the private 45,000 acre Solio Ranch, which is home to a diverse and numerous population of wildlife including both black and white rhino.
Accommodation & Facilities
The lodge has just five rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The large picture windows take in the panoramic views of the landscape, framed by Mount Kenya. Each room has a private lounge area warmed by a corner fire. Solio is at a high altitude and can be cold at night, so the rooms are designed for warmth as well as outdoor living, with each having a deck in front for relaxation during the day.
Wildlife & Activities
Activities include horse riding, walking, mountain-biking, night and day wildlife drives and fishing trips to Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. Helicopter rides can be arranged and are a perfect way to see the diverse landscape that Kenya has to offer; it’s even possible to take a short trip to Mt Kenya for breakfast. Spa treatments are available in the comfort of guests’ rooms (paid for locally).
