Was lovely to be close enough to hear the animals calling at in night unlike most Sopa lodges which seem set back a fair way from the animal action. Staff were extremely friendly & welcoming & nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were comfortable & food quality & choice were both excellent- was a buffet one night & a set... More

This was the best hotel we stayed at while on safari. It was a nice change from the Seronera Wildlife Lodge, which had been a major disappointment the night before. The staff at Sopa was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were enormous and had amazing views of the Serengeti. The shower was the best shower we had in our... More

This hotel was Excellent : Food, service, decoration,.... The room was prepared each nights, we had a nice view on the Serengeti National Park. Just be careful to the monkey, they love to catch sugar on your tables.

During the safari I've been to 3 Sopa Lodges and that was the worst one. It looks quite old acctually and it needs renovation. Out room was spacious, however we noticed a few problems. It was very difficult to close the balcony doors which were old and distroyed. But the most important problem was they had gaps which is unpleasant... More

Visited here for 2 days in August. The lodges were lovely with a great view across the park. The pool was lovely, but just watch out for the baboons, they love to snack on the sugar. Dinner was nice to have meals served (not buffet) for a change and we had (trainee?) Samuel serving us, and he went out of... More

Room had a stunning view of the Serengeti National Park and the sunrise made it special. Your welcome committee will also include antelope and monkeys who can be viewed up close. The room next to us had a nursing mother and her baby and they were less than four feet from us. Staff is very helpful and will go out... More

Our family stayed 2 nights here Incredible view of the Serengeti from our rooms and pool area. Food was good & staff very accommodating. We took box lunches & the food was plentiful. Keep the doors to your balcony closed as the monkeys will try to sneak in. Decent wifi in the lobby area & showers were hot.

Very nice lodge - a bit old, but well maintained. The rooms are large and depending on which one you get the view of the Serengeti are stunning. Hot water is restricted so don't forget to check with the front desk. We went there in August so it was not very cold. Food was better than average but not so... More

We travelled to Serengiti via road in one day from Masai Mara (Kenya), and as much was the ride a tough one, the first site of the Lodge and the view from the pool-side energised us! It is having a pretty location on a hill, and has beautiful sights all around. It is a full-board luxury lodge/hotel in the middle... More
