Just an hours’s drive from the city, the Silole Sanctuary is private land adjoining the Nairobi National Park, a rich landscape of rolling plains situated between the deep gorges of the Embakasi & Kiserian rivers.
The Sanctuary is an ideal location to get away from the city without travelling distances & sacrificing time & expense. Four hundred acres of private land, this periurban oasis is home to 60 species of mammal, species of birds & a rich diversity of flora reflecting the various habitats (riverine forest, grassland plain & valley thicket) found within it.
Things to do in the Sanctuary include walking (with or without guides), swimming at the Masai Lodge pool, rock climbing in the rocky river gorges, bird-watching and of course, game-driving in the Nairobi National Park, which is accessible through the Masai Gate, which opens on to the Sanctuary.
Masai Lodge is a 35-bed lodge marvelously situated within the Sanctuary on a cliff-edge overlooking the Embakasi river with fine views over the Nairobi National Park.Besides its comfortable accommodation in en-suite rooms, delicious food & excellent service provided by friendly staff, the Lodge boasts a beautiful swimming pool, a la carte restaurant & conference facilities.
