Although slightly below the standard of the other Sopa lodges it was a lot higher than some reviews led us to expect; it covered everything we needed in a superb setting. Being escorted by guards back to our room at night watching elephants eating the garden by torchlight was a highlight of our trip. The game viewing in the park... More

We spent three nights in the Lodge end of May. Despite low season, the place was fully booked. The lodge is ok, a bit old fashioned. Good view but very big. Our waiter was a bit annoying because he wanted so much attention. Because it was so crowded, we decided to leave early in the morning and have breakfast on... More

I did some research before coming here and I have to admit that I wasn't expecting too much from this lodge but it proved to be better than expected. Big rooms, nice views, hot water in the shower after a dusty day, good food, nice and helpful staff. But if you are planning to spend all your safari in the... More

We stayed at the Serengeti Sopa lodge for 3 nights. I've not stayed in a lodge before where there were so many people. This was a totally different experience for me. The room was lovely and clean with a foyer, huge bathroom, shower rating ****, very comfortable beds with mozzie netting though the pillows were too soft for me, and... More

So you've spent your day up and down the Serengeti National Park chasing wildlife through dusty and bumpy roads. And it was amazing. So you will be grateful to arrive at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge. First impression: what a beautiful place. Common areas are beautiful, restaurant service is impressive, the room is really spacious and the shower: spectacular! So dust... More

As we approached this lodge I thought "are we really staying here' ..Look the outside is probably in need of a fresh coat of paint, it is cement/concrete faced and colored coral pink and half hidden by trees..That said - internally there is nothing wrong with this lodge it is neat and tidy - spacious with a great pool and...

After a long drive to the Serengeti, the atmosphere at the Sopa Lodge was welcoming. Again the views and location were great, and visiting different areas of the park were quite easily accessed. The restaurant and lobby gave off a great feeling and our balcony was a nice place to relax at the end of the day and enjoy and... More

We stayed at the lodge for three days during a three week photo Safari and were quite happy with the service, the room and the hotel environs. What more superlatives can one give about the view of the Serengeti, it is truly breathtaking. A few notes, the restaurant has very nice food when it is an ordered menu service, but... More
