Nestled in the valley between the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya and the rolling peaks of the Aberdare Mountains, Solio Lodge is located on the Solio Reserve, a physically diverse, scenically spectacular private ranch covered by open grass lands, wooded ravines. It is internationally recognised as the most successful rhino breeding reserve in Africa.



Solio Lodge is built on Solio game reserve which currently has 70 black and 150 white rhinos; a further 152 have been relocated since the reserve was fenced off from Solio cattle ranch in 1974. Solio is home to a diverse and numerous population of wildlife, including both black and white rhino.


The lodge has just six cosy and luxurious rooms, each ensuite with large glass pane windows to take in the panoramic views of the landscape which is framed by Mount Kenya. Each room has a private lounge area warmed by a corner fire, as well as large bathrooms with double sink, bath and shower.. The cottages hold up to 12 guests.
