SOLIO GAME RESERVE

Are You Planning A Kenya Safari To Solio? Scroll Down For Details..

GUIDE ON SOLIO GAME RESERVE IN SOUTHERN LAIKIPIA

North of Nairobi between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains lay Solio Game Reserve, a privately-owned wildlife sanctuary. The wilderness covers a total of 45,000 acres, with 19,000 acres set aside as a conservancy and the remaining land is designated for ranching. In response to declining wildlife populations, specifically rhinos, Solio Game Reserve was started in 1970 after the Kenya Wildlife and Conservation Management Department engaged the ranch owner, Courtland Parfet, in discussions about setting aside portions of the ranch for rhino protection. Parfet was of particular interest to the department because he had already demonstrated an interest and commitment to wildlife conservation by fencing off 13,500 acres of his ranch to protect many of Kenya’s resident species, such as leopards, zebras, gazelles and buffalos. That same year, the first five rhinos were relocated to Solio Game Reserve from the southeastern wilderness in Kenya, and the relocation of rhinos to Solio Game Reserve continued for more than ten years and still does. Solio Game Reserve has received international accolades for its rhino breeding program that is the most successful of its kind in the world. In fact, today many other game reserves acquire rhinos from Solio Game Reserve. To advance this and other conservation efforts, a boutique safari lodge was opened in 2010 to generate the revenue needed for daily operations and wildlife protection. While staying at Solio Lodge, AfricanMecca boarders have the opportunity to see an almost unimaginable number rhinos, as many as 40 in a single game drive, as well as giraffes, impalas, zebras, buffalos, warthogs, waterbucks, Thomson’s gazelles and other plains animals. Predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, nocturnal striped hyenas and other carnivores are also present.
