Being a 24,000 acre wildlife ranch, Sosian pride itself on managing a unique blend of tourism, conservation and traditional cattle ranching in Laikipia’s highlands.
The original ranch house was built in the 1940’s by Italian artisans and has been beautifully restored to accommodate up to 14 people (and more on request). Four double cottages are dotted throughout the gardens, against a back drop of Mt Kenya with views for miles over the Laikipia Plateau. This is true unspoilt Africa. The lodge has a beautiful swimming pool, plus a tennis court, organic vegetable garden and a stable yard of 30 safari horses.
The original main house provides classic elegance with a dining room, sitting room, bar and billiards room. Four cottages are then spread across the tropical gardens offering 6 en suite rooms, plus a family cottage, each with their own private verandas. The beautiful swimming pool and pool house provide welcome refreshment after a day out in the bush and for those with the energy, a 'Kenya style' tennis court has held many a fine tournament!
With many years of careful management, the wildlife on Sosian has flourished. With a diverse cross section of habitats that hosts a long list of birds and mammals, including elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, kudu, oryx, impala, warthog, wild dog, plus many smaller predators such as bat-eared foxes, genet cats and several cats. Wildlife viewing is rewarding, whilst still maintaining the true wilderness of this area which makes each sighting all the more special and exciting.
The list of safari activities available is extensive including game drives, walking, horse riding, camel treks and fishing to name a but a few, and with the ranch lying at an altitude of 5500ft, it boasts the perfect climate, with no record of malaria.
