The park entrance to this wildlife and nature paradise is located only 5 minutes away from the Rhino Watch Safari Lodge, which is one
of the reasons we consider the Solio Reserve one of our main attractions. In addition to the world's largest population of white rhinos
and the near hundred black rhino, the Solio Reserve is inhabited by different other wildlife, such as buffalo, zebra, giraffe, oryx, antelope,
Thompson's gazelle, impala, waterbuck and warthog. The park also offers some of the best leopard viewing in the country, and lion and
cheetah can also be found.
Our safari team is almost daily underway in the Solio Reserve and is constantly informed about the movements of the animals.
Unforgettable game drives are guaranteed.

Day 05: Solio - Lake Naivasha

After braek fast, you will meet up with your safari guide for the drive towards Laker Naivasha.

Lake Naivasha is home to a wide variety of wildlife including a sizeable population of hippos which usually invade our property during their nightly forays for food. Being a freshwater lake, it also has a healthy fish population to include Black bass, Tilapia and Crayfish which attract a variety of fish-eating birds such as Long-tailed and Great Cormorants, along with Fish Eagles, Pelicans, and various types of Kingfishers.

Naivasha is also a good place to see the Grey-backed fiscal. This bird replaces the Long-tailed Fiscal in areas with higher rainfall. Also to be seen in the area is the Black-lored Babbler. The Naivasha race tends to show pale tipped feathers on their heads which gives their appearance a somewhat frosty or haloed effect, and it is believed that this variation may be the result of hybridization with Northern Pied Babblers at some point in the past.

Arrive at your lodge in time for Lunch and an afternoon boat ride.

This is probably one of Kenya’s most visited game reserve with an extra ordinary density of animals including the Big five and many other varieties of plains game. The Mara River cuts through the Mara Serengeti ecosystem giving life to the two game reserves finally pouring out into the Lake Victoria.

Impressive and most notable is the wildebeest, zebra and gazelle instinct led migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya. This journey is coupled by numerous obstacles which makes it even more magnificent.
