Stayed here on our second night on Safari. Absolutely awesome experience. Very friendly staff, food was excellent, with a wide selection. Comfortable beds and large walk in shower room. Excellent views of Mount Kilimanjaro

The only lodge (of three) that was a disappointment. The lodge itself was nice enough although the bathroom door wouldn't close in my room. The room was fairly comfortable. The window frames were loose and rattled with a breeze. A room safe was provided. Toiletries were provided daily. Wifi worked in select spots although not particularly fast. Food was generally...

A wonder in the bush on the foot of Kilimandjaro where you socialise with monkeys, giraffes and other maasai people living around. Great service. Village style rooms and the Hemingway bar built on the rock is very authentic. At night you see a courageous guy feeding hyenas. The swimming pool is one of the various areas where children can play

This lodge is the first lodge we stayed during our trip in Kenya. The rooms are big and clean. The staff are very nice, they always provided the same table and had everything prepared for us during our stay. After dinner the staff would check every room and helped us to set up the mosquito net and also kill the... More

We had a fabulous time over the weekend at the lodge. Had a splendid view of Mt. Kilimanjaro while having breakfast at their dining hall. Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times and with food we never went wrong. Highly recommendable place to visit. It's just 250 kms away from Nairobi.

We had a fantastic day & night at the Amboseli Sopa lodge!! The food was some of the best we'd had to date on our safari, and the rooms were absolutely gorgeous. The service was great, and the views were to die for. We loved our stay here and would come back in a heartbeat!

This was the first place we stayed on our week-long Kenya Safari and it was perfect. The Hotel had spectacular views overlooking Mount Kilimanjaro and we had our own little bungalow. My favorite part was the lovely pool which was hard to find in Africa I learned when selecting the hotels with our Travel Company Odyssey Safari’s. Sopa Lodges was... More

Sopa is very accessible and the road there is well tarmarced. The short diversion to the lodge is a well maintained murram road. Rooms are clean and the staff polite. The grounds could do with some tending as grass and bushes are a little over grown. We spent 4 lovely days and had several game drives into Amboseli National park... More

We spent one night in Amboseli Sopa Lodge during our safari trip. The lodge is situated half an hour from the entrance to Amboseli National Park so after arriving after 4 PM we still had time for a short game drive just to start our safari tour. The room was very comfortable with two huge double beds! For us it... More
