Sosian Lodge

Go to All Members

Sosian is the go-to lodge in Kenya for family safaris. Having opened its doors 15 years ago, with the ethos of being a home from home, the attraction to families was immediate.

The beautifully renovated farmhouse with a sitting room, dining room and games room sits centrally within the tropical gardens, whilst individual cottages are dotted throughout, sleeping up to 14 guests. A large, heated swimming pool and pool house, plus tennis court are also popular additions.

Sosian Lodge sits on 24,000 acres of pristine private wilderness and the activities that Sosian can offer families are numerous. We find that children soon become tired of sitting in game-drive vehicles and want to get out and explore the bush on foot or horseback. We offer fishing, tracking, horse riding, camel treks, fly camping, cattle ranching, kayaking and archery, to name a few….your little ones will not get bored!!

We have abundant wildlife and excellent guides who are knowledgeable, fun and most of all, engaging to all age groups. We don’t just look on from a vehicle; we set up camera traps to catch the elusive leopard, we watch from our tree house as elephant drink below us, we horse ride amongst giraffe and make rope swings along the rivers.

And for the parents; you’ll find you love all these activities just as much as your children! But relaxing by the pool or watching the sun go down with your favorite cocktail in hand are also wonderful ways to enjoy the tranquility of the African bush.

Meal times and menus are entirely flexible to cater for families, whether you want to dine out in the bush or back at the lodge or pool house. Our team of staff are wonderful with children and will babysit in the evenings whilst parents stay up later.

At 5500 feet, the climate at Sosian is perfect, with warm, sunny days and cool nights with no record of malaria. There are no mandatory inoculations and we welcome children of all ages.
