The southern part of Sosian Private Ranch is mostly acacia woodland and inhabited by elephant, buffalo, reticulated giraffe and impala. Lion and leopard are seen or heard regularly around Sosian.

 

Even endangered wild dogs, thought to be extinct in Laikipia, have returned to the area in healthy numbers. Bisecting the southern portion of Sosian is the Ewaso Narok River which provides the perfect habitat for hippo, otter and prolific birdlife.

Sosian Lodge Safari Activities

Sosian lodge offers walking safaris, horse riding around the ranch, day and night game drives, camel safaris, and the chance to involve oneself in the daily life of the ranch.

 

Equally one might choose to relax by the large swimming pool, play croquet or just admire the stunning scenery of Laikipia and the snow capped peaks of Mount Kenya on the horizon.

 

One particular highlight for many guests is the glorious walk up to the waterfalls on the Ewaso Narok River. With some Dutch courage and a little encouragement, one can jump from the 30 foot falls into the deep pool below.

 

Max Hastings wrote about his time in Laikipia "it is amazing how soon one becomes indifferent to the outside world, concerned only for the big events taking place within one's own horizon." Sosian embodies this notion.

 

In this great wilderness you find both beauty and comfort but the only thing worth thinking about is what you intend to do with your long African day'.

 

Sosian Private Ranch is dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and is a member of the Laikipia Wildlife Forum, working to protect Laikipia's wildlife through sustainable land uses such as eco-tourism. Sosian Lodge is open all year round.
