In the highlands between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains, there are plains with little-known nature reserves. One of these parks is the Solio Sanctuary. More than 250 white rhinos and about 80 black rhinos live here. In addition, there is a diversity of species that results from the different habitats in the park. Open steppes, bush savannahs, acacia forests and swamps not only house more than 100 lions, but also buffalo herds, waterbuck, giraffes, impala herds and a unique bird life. Thus, this park offers ideal opportunities for nature lovers and photographers. During this safari, we also visit the Aberdare Mountains, where the rare giant forest hog lives. Other highlights include a walk with a wild giraffe herd and a safari in the Ol Pejeta Reserve which was – until a short while ago – the home of the last Northern white rhinoceros bull. The well-known Rhino Watch Safari Lodge is your starting point for all tours for a week. In the lodge you will be spoiled with first-class food. There is sauna, whirlpool and an infinity pool. There are also various massage offers available.

1st day: Karibu Kenya, Welcome to Kenya!

You will be picked up from the airport or your hotel in Nairobi and leave the vibrant city behind, heading to the Kenyan highlands. On the way your guide will arrange short stops ate at fruit and vegetable markets where the farmers of the region offer their products. Fresh pineapple, mango and bananas taste much fresher here than we are used to! At Rhino Watch Safari Lodge, a lush garden awaits you.

Today, an exciting hike awaits you! Experience the walk in the living environment of zebras, antelopes, gazelles and giraffes with all your senses, you are walking through a patch of Africa! Following your guide you will walk across grassy areas, trodden wild paths and through bush land. Your Kenyan companion will be happy to answer all your questions or tell the story of the country club and its colonial environment. Giraffes slowly cross the wide plains, graceful and elegant. Her slim, tall figure appears huge when she looks curiously down at you. After all, she is the tallest land-living animal in the world. Back at the lodge in the afternoon, you will be able to observe many birds from a raised platform that like to come to the nearby pond. Overnight at Rhino Watch Safari Lodge.

The privately managed conservation reserve has been dedicated to protecting white and black rhinos for decades. In addition there are large lion packs and buffalo herds.
