Solio Lodge, Nyeri, Kenya

Uncover the fragile history of Africa’s rhino, hunted to the point of extinction for their valuable horns. Solio Lodge sits at the heart of Kenya’s first private conservancy, and now considered to be East Africa’s most successful rhino breeding ground. Used in traditional medicines and revered for its healing properties, pound for pound rhino horn is more valuable than gold. Today, thanks to various bold initiatives including putting up one of Kenya’s first conservation fences and fiercely maintaining the peace and calm, Solio Conservancy proudly boasts a thriving population (approx 175 black and 60 white) of rhino roaming freely in its grasslands.

Nestled between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains, almost on the equator. Solio's geographical position makes it the perfect destination to combine with Kenya's 'Northern circuit'.
