Here at Sosian, we have a range of alternative Safari Experiences that are not to be missed. Perhaps try Fly Camping under the stars, River Fishing on the Ewaso Narok river or Cattle Ranching!
Fly Camping at Sosian
Bringing you closer to the bush and further from modern frills, fly camping in bedrolls under the stars is an adventurous experience. Dinner is eaten by the campfire and most nights we drop off to sleep listening to distant lions, hyena and leopard but yet sleep better than we can remember…
River and Fishing in Kenya at Sosian
Sosian is lucky to have the Ewaso Narok river passing through it, with its magnificent 30 ft high waterfalls. A highlight for some who are brave enough is to jump off the waterfalls into the deep pool below. For others swimming in the pools or just enjoying the sight from next to the river is lovely. After a morning driving, walking or riding, we often have picnic brunch by the river and then enjoy the refreshing waterfalls or go tubing down the river on inflatable tubes.
Sosian’s river and dams also have a good number of catfish, yellowfish, tilapia and barbel for those who are keen for some light-hearted fishing using worms or spinners. All ages can enjoy sitting quietly next to the river and having a peaceful moment to watch the wildlife coming down to drink.
Cultural Experiences at Sosian
Sosian is situated at a junction of many different tribal areas in Northern Kenya, a very diverse area rich in traditions and untouched by western development. Samburus, Pokots, Turkanas and many smaller tribes live in the area and by special arrangement guests at Sosian may pay a visit to a local village.
The villagers are very proud to show you their cultural traditions and your visit emphasizes the importance of these traditions. Dances of courtship, fertility and marriage, jewelry making and fire making are explained in detail and it is then possible to go inside some of the houses in the village to see how these very proud people live and how strongly their customs are ingrained in their society. This is a fascinating excursion from Sosian for both adults and children and an important part of a safari holiday to Kenya.
Cattle Ranching at Sosian
Our General Ranch Manager, Sean, loves to take guests around the ranch as an alternate to usual Safari Activities to show the cattle which he is passionate about. Sean gives a fascinating insight into the vital relationship between livestock farming and the conservation of wildlife in the bush.
