We had an exceptional stay at Solio Lodge. This was the nicest place we have ever stayed, and we travel all the time all around the world, so that's saying a lot. The main reception and dining area is beautiful! It's huge, spread over three levels (top level has a small shop for handcrafts) with a massive fireplace and tasteful... More

Solio Lodge was the 3rd leg of my trip in October with friends, having already stayed at Giraffe Manor and Sasaab. Our stay was for 3 nights and with so many things to do at Solio we were determined to do and see everything which, thanks to Ivan we did. He was always on hand to advise us on how... More

Solio simply is a beautiful lodge in an environment offering an amazing variety of wildlife. Staff, food an accommodation are “The Safari Collection” style. Ava is a great host and tamed bush baby Marry-Ann a very special highlight.

Solio Lodge marked Part 1 of our Great Family African Adventure to mark 3 milestones - my wife's 70th, my 80th and our Golden Wedding. We travelled with our family - son, daughter-in-law, 2 grandsons (16 &13), granddaughter (15) and daugther. We had the most wonderful time at Solio Lodge. The standard of the accommodation, hospitality and food was 5*+.... More

We really didn't know what to expect when we went to Solio as it was our first time in Kenya, what a lovely surprise. The rooms are beautiful with lovely views, the service by the staff and management was exceptional, the food was lovely and so well thought out. We had two guides, Amos and spotter, Lapet and Fred and... More

A perfect location for viewing animals that come to the watering hole just outside the shower room window. Amos was our guide and well versed in animals and... More

Our first choice lodge in Laikipia had been flooded out as it was the rainy season and we were offered 3 nights here instead. How lucky were we! This is such a beautiful lodge and to be right in the middle of such an amazing sanctuary was more than we could have wished for. Such an amazing diversity of wildlife... More

This was my second visit to Solio. It is one of my very favorites in Kenya. I rarely go back to a place twice unless it is fantastic, plus my family was visiting from the States and I wanted them to experience this rare treat. I was a bit disappointed though that Ava, the wonderful manager, was not there to... More
