A wonderful five star accommodation in a private wildlife sanctuary. Solio has the perfect combination of superior service, excellent excursions and is brilliant for rhino sightings. A bush breakfast here is a must!

Solio Lodge

Solio Lodge was awesome. The accommodation was huge, far too much for two people, but pure luxury. The staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. Ava the manager came up and spoke to you at every meal time and was genuinely interested in your day. T he food was excellent, fresh and tasty, although if I was to have one moan there were no options, the evening meal was set. Although I am sure if you didn't like something they would have made an alternative. A fire was lit every evening in your lodge and a hot-water bottle provided, Also all toiletries, including sunscreen in the van, were provided. We would definitely like to come back here again. Amos and Blackie were our driver and spotter and did an amazing job. One evening Blackie spotted a snake no bigger than a pencil swallowing a frog on the side of the road as we were heading out. We thought it was Blackie's pet snake and he had planted it there! The rhino sightings were absolutely incredible: 360-degree rhino. They were also in large groups and interspersed with other animals, mainly buffalo.
