While at Solio, your activities include day and night game drives in the company of your expert guide, morning bird walks and sundowner walks, horse-riding, mountain biking, helicopter trips and fishing trips to Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains.

Solio Camp works particularly well in combination with its sister-camp in the Mara, Sala’s Camp – please see our suggested itinerary for more details, and call us to find out more!
