Stayed at Sosian for just under a week with a group of friends. Accommodation, facilities and food were all top-notch but to my mind what really set Sosian apart was the huge variety of activities on offer and the seeming ability to do as much (or as little) as you want, when

It was great. A stunning location surrounded by wildlife. So exciting. We had a wonderful time and are still trying to adjust to the grim reality of being back in cold, wet Old Blighty. Many thanks to Aisha, Josh and, newcomer, Louisa.

Tristan Voorspuy who was one of the shareholders of Sosian was killed on 5th March. This was during a time when a large number of illegal cattle were grazing on Sosian. However this was not at Sosian Lodge but at one of the other shareholder's houses a 20 minute drive away, on the northern boundary of Sosian Ranch. Sosian lodge had stopped taking any guests from the end of January onwards to be cautious and we did not have anyone there at this time. Sosian will reopen when we feel it is safe and we can provide the first class safari experience we are known for. Thank you.
