At Suyian Soul, Ann Powys has created an amazing camp in a secluded part of her family ranch that you won't likely see on your typical safari. But it is not to be missed for all the reasons other reviewers have described. I'd like to focus on some of the things that made our visit so special. "Why did all...

Suyian Soul is a fabulous place. It has a beautiful setting, near a natural salt lick, with a view from all of the rooms towards the hills on two sides and the plains in the distance. It is truly an "eco camp" - it really is. Anne Powys, the owner and manager, is happy to give guests a tour of...

Stayed here for three nights during the great grevy's rally and it was a wonderful experience. Anne and her team really look after their guests and their warmth and friendliness is what makes this place special. The wildlife in this area is very rich and the vistas are stunning. The place and the rooms are fantastic - it's an eco...

We spent 2 nights at Suyian soul! Absolutely total bliss ❤️ Beautiful Banda to stay in, everything has been thoroughly thought through. Eco conscious and sustainable. A wonderful place to come to rest. Ben and Samson did their utmost to show us all the wildlife and I certainly hope to go on a botanical or bird walk on my next...

This is the first time I have been to this eco friendly lodge situated on a ranch in the Likepia District of Kenya. A small and wonderfully constructed camp with a true feeling of 'being in your own home' in as far as nobody fusses over you but instead treats you like a member of the family. The views and...

My wife Kristin and I spent two days at Suyian Soul in mid December 2014 with other members of my family. The experience was simply exceptional. My wife and I run an eco-lodge in Canada and so often approach lodges and camps with a fairly critical eye, but have nothing but admiration for the experience that Anne Powys, the proprietor,...

This place in the Laikipia Hights is magical. The host-owner Anne Powys and her staff make every effort to make your stay a unique African experience. Her knowledge of local plants and wildlife is remarkable and only second to her charm as a host. The facilities are rustic but comfortable. Often you can see elephants and other wildlife from the...

Suyian Soul has a certain magic to it, and Anne Powys, its founder, IS that magic. A wonderfully warm host, Anne’s fund of knowledge of the birds and plants there is incredible. The lodge was built with ‘Soul’ with beautiful touches and details. It is warm and friendly and brings nature to you as a guest. The scenery and game...

This is the second time we have visited Suyian Soul and we have had an awesome stay on both occasions. The bandas are beautifully designed to be charming and yet have minimum effect on the surrounding environment. The bandas and their adjoining bathrooms are open to the air and so perhaps not the ideal destination for anyone who is overly...
