Six days at Sosian was not nearly enough! It is perfect in every way. The staff are amazing, the range of activities almost endless, the rooms luxurious, and the food is plentiful and beautifully prepared and presented. A superb experience.

I stayed at Sosian for five days earlier this month. Simon, Rosie, Daisy and the entire staff took care of every need during the visit, many even before they occurred to me!

A friend and I spent three nights at Sosian and loved every minute. Simon and Rosie and their staff looked after us so well. Our two safari drives with Simon were superb - one concentrating on the local bird life and the other a successful "expedition" to find wild dogs. We watched the wild dogs for at least an hour...
