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.
For your stay, accommodation in the Sanctuary is available according to your needs.Please click on the links to explore the various options we have available for you.
How to get here: The best way to get to the Sanctuary is through the Masai Gate (south end of the Park; follow the signs). Otherwise drive down the Magadi Road from Bomas of Kenya on the Langata road & turn first left off the tarmac (signboarded to Nazarene University & Masai Lodge). Then just keep going to the end of the murram road (6 km) until you reach Masai Lodge.
The turn off to Silole Villa & Silole Cottage is on the right immediately before the Masai Lodge Gate.
In the dry season, the roads are fine, but during the Rains you might like to use a 4 WD vehicle to get to the Sanctuary and/or the Park.
