Walking, Tracking and Birding at Sosian
Walking is the most intimate way to explore the bush. Led by an experienced walking guide you will learn how to follow animal tracks, recognize dung, insects, flora and fauna and all the other tiny details that you might miss from a vehicle. We also have lions and wild dogs which are collared by the Laikipia Predator Project, which means we can go out with a tracker and find them.
You don’t have to be super-fit to enjoy walking, which can be from 20 minutes to 4 hours depending on how you feel.
For keen bird-watchers, Sosian has over 350 species of birds; several types of habitat and the guides are all keen ornithologists. If you enjoy birding you can spend as much time as you want exploring the river, thicker bush, open plains and gardens around the lodge for many species of birds.
We can also set up a Camera Trap, which is a fun and interactive activity at Sosian for adults and children. You put the camera up at a spot that might have some exciting activity, like a hyena den, and the camera detects any movement and takes a photo. Then you take it back to camp and download the photos, sometimes all you see is a beetle or blade of grass blowing in the wind, other times you might see photos of unusual nocturnal species.
