- Indulge in a picnic brunch on the side of the river

Sosian has amazing wildlife, all of Africa's large mammals apart from rhino are here. Large herds of elephant, giraffe, hippos, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, African wild dog, zebra, antelopes, warthogs and a plethora of beautiful birds.

This is the second trip we have done with A&K. (The first was in 1999.) We were very impressed with A&K on the first trip. We were even more impressed with A&K on the second trip. Consequently, we are already considering a third trip with A&K – to Egypt in March 2014.

Sosian Lodge is located on a private wildlife conservancy in Laikipia area of Kenya. The area is extremely scenic with the escarpment giving way to dramatic wooded gorges and riverine thickets. Sosian specializes in action packed adventurers and as it is outside the national parks one is not limited to viewing game from a vehicle. The lodge has been restored from a ranch house built in the 1940's by Italian artisans. The seven cottages lie in the garden, with Mount Kenya in the background and views of unspoilt Africa. Each lodge has its own private veranda and en suite bathroom.
