Solio is a fabulous ranch. Rooms are all private,spacious and open to face Mt. Kenya. The sunrises are spectacular. The staff are so pleasant, eager to please and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed both early morning and afternoon game drives where we saw wonderful animals and birds. The ranch is known for it's Rhino's. We saw 56 one day. Never bored... More

This is our 7th times at Solio lodge, this is just one of the best kept secret and place to be where everything is up to expectation. The ranch is beautiful, has the most rhinos population in Kenya. All the rooms face Mount Kenya.

This was our first stop on an incredible family trip and it was such a perfect transition for us. We are a big family and with a lot of dietary restrictions. We also had a few in our group who were anxious about being around the animals. Solio Lodge and Ranch were simply marvelous. The staff was beyond lovely and... More

Solio Lodge is a little paradise. Being the only lodge on the ranch, calm and privacy are guaranteed and the short and easy drive makes it a perfect weekend retreat from Nairobi. The rooms are nice and spacious, with big window panels that give you good views from your bed (not all rooms have views, the one on the far... More

This was our first stop on our African adventure and what a perfect place to start! The rooms, unbelievably comfortable and spacious. The food was top notch. The game drives were exciting and the animals were plentiful. We always saw something picture worthy. My family did not want to leave! Highly, HIGHLY recommended!!!!!

We stayed 4 nights at Solio and were so glad that we did. After some frantic days of getting up early at other camps, this was a nice change. We could sleep in and leave at 8:30 for our game drive and still see everything. Amos, our guide and Blackie, our spotter, were the BEST!! Such sweet guys and Amos... More

Thank you for your review, Solio's geographical location and temperature means that game are often out all day, as you mention you can have a well earned lie in when staying at Solio and still see all the wildlife you could wish to see. All the guides at Solio are incredibly knowledgeable and Amos and Blackie will certainly be pleased... More

Solio Lodge is the only accommodation located in Solio Ranch, a privately-owned game reserve geared towards rhino conservation. First off, Solio Ranch is beautiful: one of the most haunting and lush landscapes I've ever seen. The top-heavy acacia trees fall over and are left where they fall as animals use the deadwood--so these huge fallen trees are everywhere (as well... More

Thank you for your review, as you say the abundance of game is really quite spectacular at Solio, seeing both black and white rhino in such large numbers still amazes us. We will pass on your comments to Fred, he is a very knowledgeable guide and will be pleased to hear he that you were so impressed. The Safari Collection... More
