iF you dream of seeing animals and meeting masais... This is the place to be. Nice midle size hotel ( old but well kept) inside the park, big rooms, and good size bathrooms. Huge restaurant and bar. Food is good, although the service at the restaurant is very slow! Nice pool. At the bar, depending on the night, they have... More

The overall experience was great. In our 2 weeks Safari tour we ended up staying in 6 out of 8 Sopa lodges - have to admit the owners are able to pick good spots wifi was reliable. People were mostly respectful, caring and keen to help. Food variety was awesome and quality was great too. In the rooms only problem... More

This lodge is close to the masai mara entrance and also has a great location to a lot of wild animals. 5min drive away from the lodge we saw zebras, antilopes, lions, elephants, buffalos, cheetahs and more. The lodge is very african which I loved. Everything is clean and homie. At night they play life music and light the fire... More

Lovely hotel, very friendly and helpful staff welcome drink and warm flannel were waiting for us on arrival. Rooms clean and they come in, in the evening to spray the room and pull the mosquito nets around the beds. Electric and hot water is only on in the morning and evening.

Great lodge. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Lots of space and mosquito net all around the bed. Bathroom is also spacious, with all the facilities. The only low point is the hot water storage system which is shared with the room next door so if you run out of hot water, you have to wait half an hour or so... More

I enjoyed a two-night stay at Mara Sopa Lodge as part of a safari arranged by JT (Julius Tact) Safaris. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the overall property (buildings, landscape and view) was nice. The food was also good.

Location is great but you cannot sell a place on that alone - there is no power from morning till evening. Compared to so many lodges at Massai Mara that I have stayed this was definitely one of the poorest

Main feature of this hotel: location, location, location!!! The grounds were beautiful, the hotel itself was stunning, service was great, and the food was amazing, but none of that mattered compared to the location. This hotel is right at the entrance to the Masai Mara and made going on game drives so easy. Since this isn’t a review of the... More

A very nice lodge, constructed by locally available material. Located on the hill. Has electricity, very nice cottages that can accommodate up to four persons. The meals are perfect. Note that bear and other alcoholic and none alcoholic drinks can be expensive compared to the normal prices. The staff are friendly. The lodge supports local community by investing in schools,...
