Solio Lodge Solio Game Reserve is an intimate and luxurious gateway to outdoor adventure at the foot of Mount Kenya. The lodge is the only guest accommodation located in the 45,000-acre Solio Game Reserve/ Solio Ranch Conservancy which is nestled between the lofty slopes of Mt Kenya and the peaks of the Aberdare Mountain Range. Solio Lodge is about a 4-hour drive from Nairobi on good roads. By air, there are scheduled flights from Nairobi into Nanyuki Airstrip (followed by a 20-minute transfer to the conservancy gate and then a further 45 minutes to the lodge).
Solio Lodge has 5 individual cottages. The 5th cottage is a family unit and has 2 en-suite bedrooms sleeping up to 5 people. Each cottage is very large and can comfortably accommodate 2 adults and 2 children in extra beds. Extra beds are on request only.
The en-suite bathrooms have a bath and shower with a separate loo. Each cottage has a private lounge area with an open fire, vast floor-to-ceiling windows frame, and private decks with panoramic views of the nearby hills and Mount Kenya.
Healthy meals prepared with fresh ingredients from the Solio Lodge’s own organic vegetable garden are served in the dining area or outside under the stars within sight of grazing waterbuck, zebras, and impalas.
The cool evenings make dinner a very cozy affair with bonfires, low light, and candlelit tables. Guests can sit around the large fireplace or exchange stories of the day as they enjoy cocktails on the expansive verandah, which looks out over the Kenyan mountains and open plains.
Guests can also enjoy in-room spa treatments like massage services and other beauty treatments.
Activities in the Solio Lodge include; game drives, horseback riding, guided walks, fishing, helicopter flights, bird watching, sundowners, night game drives, and excursions to Mt. Kenya.
Children’s activities include basic bushcraft skills and enlighten them with interesting facts about the wildlife at large such as the simple tracks and markings of the wild.
