Sopa Lodge is located within the Serengeti National Park, so location wise it can't be beaten. Overall the food and service was average and certainly not as good as 3 other lodges we stayed at during this trip. The rooms and lodge overall are tired and in need of a refurb. The views from the 2nd storey rooms are outstanding.

We were given a room all the way at the corner. The room was very big, and each person could have a queen/king sized bed. Hot shower and electricity was available only at certain times but it was still all right. There were quite a number of charging points in the room which is good for travellers too. Buffet dinner...

The staff were average, it took 20 minute for them to get a room sorted out for us. The rooms are below average. The hotel clearly has been around for a while and not much effort has been put in updating the furnishings or linen. They claim to have a gym but its pretty pathetic. The food seems to be... More

Serengeti sopa lodge was second place to stay our safari tours. After tarangire sopa and very long driving we arrived to hotel. Greeting was good. Lodge is comfortable, views of the lodge were awesome. However Service was not good. Waiters did not smile, they said lie. After Tarangire sopa , serengeti sopa was disappointment.. If you have chance try other... More

breath taking views of the Serengeti plains from the lobby - can imagine the animals migrating, but alas that was not to be seen while we were there ! Our room was extremely dark and there were no phones in the room not even to communicate with reception or between rooms. So it was a trek to the lobby each... More

We spent two nights here during our safari and found this lodge to be very pleasant. The room was very spacious and extremely clean especially given the amount of dust we bought in after our game drives. Overall the food was good, however inconsistent. On our first night the service came with a very friendly smile and very efficient and... More

Secondly we are not connected to the reception or house keeping since there are no telephones in the room so u need to run to the reception for any get... More

The place is special. Outside the rooms you will find a nice view and even see animals like zebras and buffalos. The swimming pool area is nice (despite the mosquitoes -bring a good repellent!) and sometimes small monkeys enter the area and try to steal your peanuts or popcorn. The service is friendly (I remember an excellent waiter called Peter)... More

We recently stayed two nights at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge as part of a 7 day Peak Planet/AWC Safari. This was a last minute substitution for another lodge, but we were fine with the substitution. The Lodge is quite a bit of a drive to get to, each afternoon and morning it took ½ hour just to get to and... More
