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

This was the second lodge of our safari and once again we very much enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and again the staff outstanding. Great customer service!!! The restaurant and food was good with the waiters and kitchen staff singing to the clients was enjoyable. We seemed to think this might of been a little older lodge than... More

We stayed in Serengeti Sopa Lodge as part of a tour operator safari to Kenya and Tanzania. It was an excellent hotel, with amazing views over the plains, large sized rooms, very pleasant food with lots of choices, very friendly staff. We were given great lunchbox meals for our trips into the park. As we discovered, you have to be... More

My safari at the Serengeti had a perfect ending with my stay at the Sopa Lodge. Very comfertable and lovely views of the Serengeti Valley. The cuisine served at the restaurant was also enjoyable to say the least.

Great location right in central Serengeti. Great views both from common areas and the rooms. Great sit down dinners with both vegetarian and non vegetarian meal options. Comparable to a good 4 star hotel in the West. Wifi available but restricted to common areas.
