Our Nat Geo around-the-world tour stayed here near the end of a 3 week adventure, although it was several years ago and I am just now getting around to review. Hotel is fairly scaled down compared to the luxury hotels we stayed in around the world, but it was just perfect. View from our window was extraordinary, situated as we... More

Staffs were friendly and helpful. There is no intercom service but they were ready outside our room to assist carrying luggage bags to lobby. Views was cool, it's migration of wildebeest! Lunchbox was fine lots of options. Dinner is alright(limited choices) too though i expect buffet dinner. Breakfast is just a standard western breakfast. Not much options for local food.

We loved our two night stay at Serengeti Sopa. I had read mixed reviews but we really like this place. Staff is excellent. Rooms are interesting, clean and comfortable. The food was the best we had during our Tanzania safari.

This lodge was wonderful! The staff was attentive and gracious. Rooms were clean and well taken care of. Food was out of this world! Be advised - because the lodge uses generators for electricity, hot water is only available for 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the evening. Also, generators are turned off from 2:30 - 3:30...

My sister and I were part of six in a Globus safari group. The Sopa Serengeti was our last of three Sopa Lodges during our ten days of safari. The staff were great and most remembered our names each day. The monkeys on the balcony awoke us each morning and provided some good entertainment. Beds were a little harder here... More

I visited this lodge during August 2014 while on my way to the north of the Serengeti to see the wildebeest crossing the Mara river. The first time you get close to the lodge you think that it really is in need of fixing (oops where have i come to). The outside walls are in a state of decay and... More

There was nothing really wrong with this lodge but it seemed a bit more run down than the others in the Sopa chain and the staff were a little more lackadaisical. The road up to it was rough even by African dirt road standards. I don't know if it was a private road but since there was nothing else up... More

Beautiful lodge located at the heart of central serengeti, another charming lodge of SOPA, visited the one in ngorongoro which was also very nice. really nothing bad to say, the only thing i would say is that the balconies of the rooms are really close, we had noisy neighbours which wasn't that nice. the bathroom and showers are stunning!!

We stayed for 2 nights during our 4 days safari and we were pleased with this hotel. They had, as do most African hotels, a warm welcome with delicious mango juice :) This lodge does not look great from the outside, as it's obvious that it hasn't been refurbished for quite some time, but the rooms are nice and spacious....
