LOCATION: It takes a good 30-45 minutes to get there from the Serengeti as it is up a very steep and rocky hill, but the view is fantastic. ROOMS: Hot water runs in the evening and morning for 3 hour time blocks, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the staff is great if you are there for a special... More

Very typical Sopa Lodge. A very warm welcome awaits you after a dusty day of travel, the staff in almost all the places we travelled in Africa are there to please and it was no different here. Yes, there is constant tipping, but really its only a dollar or two but with drinks at less than happy hour prices, you... More

Nonetheless it was very welcoming, food was great, the view from the restuarant was amazing, watching elephants on the Serengeti while eating breakfast!!! Awesome. The rooms were gorgeous and the shower was great. Our favourite of the three Sopa... More

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

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
