A privately-owned game ranch that offers seven double-bedded cottages with en-suite bathrooms set in tropical garden.
'Sosian', the Samburu word for 'Wild Date Palm', combines the tame with the wild; ideal for those looking for a unique and intimate bush experience. The 24,000-acre private, working ranch sits on the Laikipia plateau, 80kms west of Mt Kenya, offering pure wilderness, with more than 250 species of birdlife and an abundance of game species with four of the big five being found at Sosian Ranch, plus rare species such as Wild dogs, Jackson's hartebeest and Grevy's zebra.
Guests are accommodated in an elegant 1940's farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated. The lodge sleeps 14 people with more space for children if needed and has a swimming pool, tennis court, and organic vegetable garden.
Sosian offers a huge range of activities including walking, horse-riding, camel safaris, game-drives, night-drives, fishing, tennis and swimming in the waterfalls behind the ranch house. Guests are also encouraged to participate in ranch life, such as dipping cattle. An added attraction of Sosian, is to spend a night 'fly Camping' under the stars - we highly recommend this and guests love it! Sosian is also well known for its delicious home cooking using fresh ingredients from the garden.
