Sosian Lodge

Sosian lodge is a beautifully restored African ranch house that was built in the 1940’s by Italian artisans, and accommodates up to fourteen people in the atmosphere of a private home.

The Sosian Lodge offers exciting daily safari activities and features a swimming pool, tennis court and miles of wilderness to explore with top guides. Sosian is well known for its delicious home cooking using fresh ingredients from the organic vegetable garden and for its warm and friendly hospitality.

Rooms at Sosian Lodge

Guests are accommodated in an elegant 1940s farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated. The lodge sleeps 14 with more space for children if needed in the family cottage, which has an interconnecting room. All the rooms are en suite with their own private verandas. There's also a larger and more private honeymoon cottage, known as the Italian cottage, built by Italian artisans post war.

Activities at Sosian Lodge

Sosian offers a huge range of activities including walking safaris with top quality guides, horse-riding, camel safaris, morning and night drives, birding, fishing, river trips, river swimming and waterfall jumps, tubing, lunch picnics, archery, tennis and swimming in the waterfalls behind the lodge. Guests are also encouraged to participate in ranch life, such as dipping cattle.

Sosian Lodge Cultural Experience

Sosian is situated at a junction of many different tribal areas in Northern Kenya, a very diverse area rich in traditions and untouched by western development. Samburus, Pokots, Turkanas and many smaller tribes live in the area and by special arrangement guests at Sosian may pay a visit to a local village.

The villagers are very proud to show you their cultural traditions and your visit emphasizes the importance of these traditions. Dances of courtship, fertility and marriage, jewellery making and fire making are explained in detail and it is then possible to go inside some of the houses in the village to see how these very proud people live and how strongly their customs are ingrained in their society. This is a fascinating excursion from Sosian for both adults and children and an important part of a safari holiday to Kenya.

Sosian Lodge Cuisine

Sosian is well known for its delicious home cooking using as many local and fresh ingredients as possible, often home grown. After the mornings activities we tend to have big breakfasts or brunch on the riverbank or on the lodge veranda, enjoying the gardens.

Lunch can be served either by the pool before an afternoon sunbathing or playing tennis, or otherwise in a nice shady picnic spot in the bush. Before heading out in the afternoons we have tea on the veranda and dinner either in back the beautiful lodge dining room or under the stars in the bush.
