Never again will I consider staying in this lodge again. After staying at Sopa Lodge in Naivasha, my expectations were probably too high for the stay at Sopa Lodge in Amboseli. - Food was disgusting, breakfast choices were limited, lunch was for puppies, and dinner was atrocious. - No electricity for over 9 hours each day. - No internet connection....

Luckily for us we had 3clear days with Kili showing itself in its full glory. Breakfast and lunch with this magnificent view was awesome. The staff were eager to make our stay memorable and nothing was to much trouble. Rooms were excellent. Location, ambience, staff made this a great experience for our group of 8. Nothing pretentious or overbearing here....made... More

A very pleasant place to stay. Staff was very welcoming, and the rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. The buffet was well above average, with great selection and well stocked, and the dining hall was comfortable, if a bit loud.

First of all you get a great view of Mt Kilimanjaro (You might have to get up early to beat the mist). Accommodation basic but good, Electricity is timed but that not a problem. Food was excellent as was the view from the restaurant. Masai Warrior out side the restaurant to chase away the monkeys

The staff and the chef were really very helpful to us. When we first came we immediately asked for the chef since we wanted food specific to our choice. The chef understood our requirements for the food and tried his best to meet our expectations and even exceeded them. Each evening he prepared something special for us. The room quality... More

We were welcomed with a cold drink and cool face towels. The hotel stuff are very friendly and helpful. They know how to handle children and have fun activities like fishing organized for them. The food was quite nice with themed nights each night we spend there. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom is big has amenities one should expect... More

It met our expectations based on previous reviews. The lodge is a short ride from the park entrance. It was our understanding that lodges inside are considerably more costly and since... More
