Why we like it

  • Get up close and personal to the wildlife on horseback
  • Camel riding gives you a great vantage point from which to see the bush
  • A visit to the nearby Samburu settlement should not be missed
  • Enjoy sundowners on top of a hill overlooking miles of African wilderness followed by a night drive with a spotlight in search of leopard, porcupine and more exciting nocturnal animals
  • Indulge in a picnic brunch on the side of the river
  • If adventure is what you are looking for camp under the stars for a night

- SR, London

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.
