Flocks of rhino in Solio Ranch
Overall rating

Solio Game Ranch is one of the many private ranches on Laikipia Plateau. A lot of the ranches in Laikipia offer good black and white rhino viewing, but this is something else. Rhinos dot the plains in flocks here. This place has one of the most successful breeding programs of rhino in Africa, but to me there seems something slightly disturbing about so many rhinos in such a small area. Aside from an unnatural high density of rhino, these local populations have some of the biggest horns I’ve ever seen.

Aside from the rhinos, other wildlife is abundant as well. I saw cheetah, lion, buffalo, lots of antelopes and about 100 rhino on a morning drive. Solio has been around for a while, but Solio Lodge is a new addition and I would say it is one of the finest lodges in Kenya. The décor is stunning and the service and food is world-class.
