Sosian is a privately owned ranch in the heart of the Laikipia escarpment in central Kenya.

Sosian is a very exclusive and well run property offering a wide range of experiences across the beautiful Laikipia countryside. The lodge itself has a slightly colonial feel with the central areas housed within the old farmhouse which leads out to a wide verandah, lawn and sweeping views. The accommodation is very comfortable but not opulent, and management and service is attentive and friendly. Activities are flexible and varied. There is plenty of game on Sosian, including the predators, and game drives are undertaken daily. However to make the most of Sosian guests will have the chance to walk and ride, perhaps try fishing or river swimming, or experience a more adventurous night out fly-camping. There are also options to visit local villages for a cultural experience. The property will suit travellers who enjoy warm hospitality, good food and flexible and varied activities, but who do not require five star luxury.
