Nestled in the valley between the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya and the rolling peaks of the Aberdare Mountains lies the tranquil Solio Lodge. Located on the Solio Reserve, which is part of a private ranch, and is home to a diverse and numerous population of wildlife, including both black and white rhino.
With just six cosy and luxurious rooms, each ensuite with large glass pane windows to take in the panoramic views of the landscape, the lodge offers a gentle, inviting experience. Its location and design make it ideal for a first encounter with the wilderness, or to recoup after a busy safari. The views are framed by Mount Kenya and the altitude makes for a temperate climate, perfect for enjoying the pristine reserve in the daytime and the gloriously warm, romantic rooms by night. Each room has a private lounge area warmed by a corner fire, as well as large bathrooms with double sink, bath and shower.
For those seeking to unwind, decadent spa treatments are available in the comfort of the rooms. The reserve also offers a feast of diversions for the active guest. These range from walking, mountain-biking, day or night game drives and horseback riding to fishing trips to Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. For a once in a lifetime experience book a helicopter flight over the extraordinary landscapes of Kenya, with a stop at Mount Kenya for breakfast.
