My family (mom/dad & 2 kids-11 & 12 yrs) stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our African adventure in Kenya & Tanzania. The lodge is adjacent to the Maasai Mara National Reserve where we saw all the usual animals to include African buffalo, lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, etc, etc (no leopard or rhino). Upon arrival, helpful staff... More

We visited the hotel 2 nights 3 days and had great experience and saw lots of animals in the tour travel at the Mara Reserve Park. We were disappointed we saw 3 out of the 5" big five" but the leopards and rhinos are almost extinct in this park, as a whole the experience was amazing. The staff were great... More

I stayed here as part of the "Africa Classic" tour through Adventure World & Flight Centre. It was the first leg of our 7 day tour. The tour itself was fantastic! However, I used the in-room safe at Mara Sopa Lodge and US$250 was stolen from me and counterfeit US$50 notes put in. I only used the in-room safe at... More

We visited this place sometime back with family. The kind of reception we received was wonderful. The food was excellent and on the last day of our stay the staff presented us with a full cake, and sang for us ! The kids were so excited and keep begging to go back. We will definitely be back.

The views from the bar area are breathtaking, but the resort it self needs a little TLC. Compared to the other Sopa Lodges we visited, this one was a little run down. The food is great, catering for every dietary needs The staff can not be faulted, as they are there to happily assist your every need, with their wide... More

Just after a very good stay at Sopa Lodge, Lake Naivasha we moved on to Masai Mara. Much more run down and not really maintained over the years. The view from the various terraces is now a days completely hidden by the high vegetation = NO view at all. Rooms certainly not up to standard as well as very old... More

Stayed here just recently and had a great opportunity to explore the Mara. The road from the highway is bumpy to say the least and when you get to the Park gate this lodge is just around the corner, again on a very bumpy road. Room and food were great and would definitely recommend a stay here. A little out... More

We spent one night here on our Kenya safari. The rooms are located in huts that kind of look like Haggrad's house from Harry Potter, four rooms to a building. The rooms were large and comfortable. We had a 2nd floor room which provided a balcony and allowed for evening viewing of the game that came up to hotel to... More
