Fishing at great heights

Fishing at great heights

Fishing enthusiasts can now enjoy extreme fly-fishing whilst on Safari in Kenya’s Solio Lodge with their new helicopter trips to Mount Kenya.

The previously remote lakes are now just a 15-minute helicopter journey from the lodge directly to the lakeshore. And, being Africa’s second tallest mountain, Mount Kenya, with its glacier-capped peaks and many lakes, rivers and tarns is a very impressive sight.

While not out fly-fishing for rainbow trout, guests can make the most of the private conservation area, known for its unique rhinoceros population and other wildlife, including buffalo, zebras, giraffes, lions, leopards and cheetahs. Alongside safari game drives, activities include walking, mountain biking, horseback riding.

And the less adventurous can enjoy the beauty of the park from the lodge itself, which features six individual cottages, each with their own fireplaces, private decks and large windows.

The lodge is located by the Acacia Xanthophlea, the local water hole where many of the resident animals come to drink, offering guests the opportunity to see the animals up close and from the comfort of their own cottage. The camp was established back in 1970 and encompasses 45,000 acres.

Prices start from US$545 per person per night and include full board accommodation, guided walks, game drives, horseback riding, transfers from local airstrips, lodge and taxes. To book visit
