Decent choice for a comfortable stay in the Maasai Mara. Food and service in the restaurant are OK. However, wifi needs to be improved. Rooms do not have wifi or TV, but that seems to be the norm in the parks. At most there is a common area for TV and drinks, etc. I stayed at several other Sopa lodges... More

We went as a private tour and the hotel was chosen by the tour group. We were very favorably impressed by the quality of stay at the Mara Sopa lodge. We were welcomed with a cool drink and wet towels- essential after a long and dusty drive up to the park.The Lodge is practically at the gates of the Masai... More

The only negative part is the road to this lodge which is quite bumpy but then if you are not much bothered about that, the trip to this hotel is always worth the effort. We could go to the safari from here daily. The food was excellent and the staff (all of them!!) were really pleasant and took a lot... More

The Mara Sopa Lodge is just inside the Masai Mara Reserve near to one of the main gates. Accommodation is in pleasant lodges set around a central Restaurant / Bar. Food was buffet style, good quality and well presented - this included a barbeque for one of the evenings we stayed there. Clean and well appointed rooms - very friendly... More

This was a very nice lodge . I was fortunate that my room was not too far from the reception but this was not the case for everyone and it can be a bit of a walk (I was told) from the farther rooms. The room was very comfortable with desk, chair, sofa etc. Toiletries provided daily. The bed was... More

This sopa lodge is very different from other sopa lodge we had stayed during our stay in Kenya. Very interesting that they provide some activity for guest to join during the stay. African dancing every evening at the bar, and watching the staff to feed the cats inside the hotel. The staff are very helpful. We need a special dance... More

We visited Mara Sopa Lodge in March of this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did run out of hot water a time or two, but, that was because we were not watching the time. They let you know what the hours are for the hot water and electricity. We enjoyed the atmosphere immensely and the animals (monkeys and... More

My wife and I spent the Easter weekend at this lodge from Good Friday to the Sunday and we really enjoyed ourselves. The roads leading to the lodge and the game drive tracks are quite rugged and back breaking but once you get back to the lodge, its quite relaxing. The rooms were basic but nice and the hot showers... More

Spent 3 nights at the Mara Sopa Lodge in the end of march and I was very impressed. The rooms are clean, spacious and equipt wiht mosquito net around the beds. The main lodge has a cozy "bar" area with fireplace and comfy chairs. It sets the mood for the evening. After a long game drive you can relax at... More
