First built in the 1940s, then abandoned during the 1990s, Sosian was completely restored as a riding and game-viewing base in 2002. It’s still a working cattle ranch, too, with a 1,600-head herd of Boran cattle - which is the largest stud Boran herd in Kenya. The main building is an Argentine estancia-style ranch house with views across lawns to the remote savannah of north-west Laikipia, close to the Ewaso Narok River. Unfortunately Sosian closed in March 2017 and we are not sure when it will open again. Please ask an Expert Africa consultant.

Our view of Sosian

What we like so much about Sosian is the sense of being a house guest on a long-established country farm with a huge variety of wonderful distractions. A safari that includes river swimming, wild-dog tracking and camel or horse-riding is far from the norm, but typifies the sort of activities you can find in Laikipia – though not usually all in the same place. When you add in really excellent cuisine that relies greatly on the lodge’s own garden produce, very comfortable rooms and top-quality hosting, it makes for a highly recommended stay.
