The fireplace adds an element of homeliness along with the distinct artifacts and paintings scattered around that contribute to its muted elegance. On the top floor, you can purchase sustainable souvenirs to take home from your AfricanMecca vacation in southern Laikipia or lounge on the outside wooden veranda and watch the buffaloes, oryxes, impalas and zebras. Since the reserve is a world-renowned breeding reserve for rhinos, sighting over 40 rhinos is a regular phenomenon though there are no elephants here. Solio Game Reserve is fenced due to the protection of its breeding rhinos; therefore, there is no free flow of animal in and out of it wilderness, and some guests may not liken to the idea of a restricted wilderness even though accommodation on offer is a boutique experience. You will be accommodated in one of their 6 thatched roof villas. The back wall of the villas is made of glass according you stunning views of the outside forest and the peaks of Mount Kenya while a spacious patio in the front allows for relaxing moments.

The attached bathroom has a stand-alone bathtub standing against a glass panel, rain shower and twin washbasins with luxury toiletries specially formulated for the lodge. Slip into comfortable bathrobes and slippers after a refreshing, evening soak. Families traveling in Kenya can opt for the two-room villa that has connecting doors and can sleep five people at a time. Solio Lodge has its own vegetable patch where they grow organic produce. You will be treated to the delicious meals in the dining area or out on the deck underneath shaded trees. Have a hot breakfast of cereal, sausages, eggs and bread and three-course meals for lunch and dinner. Their Spanish soups, Asian curry and chapatis are favorites for dinner!

Your experienced guide is an expert at gauging the movements of animals and will point out both black and white rhinos, warthogs, giraffes and predators like lions, cheetahs and leopards.
