We have traveled several times throughout Africa, and many times to Kenya. And the Masai Mara has to be one of the top two destinations of my choice. We traveled with Affable Safaris and Tours out of Nairobi and the Sopa Lodge is their choice of lodges in eastern Mara. Yes, the roads are a little rough getting to the Sopa Lodge, but hey that's all part of the experience. With our guide Agoi, of Affable Safaris, we had absolutely no problems. Agoi's many years of experience provided a perfect safari and this part of the Mara is wonderful. The Sopa Lodge is located such that you can reach many varied sections of the Mara and see all the game you can imagine - lots of leopard, cheeta, and lion...But, back to the Sopa Lodge, this is a terrific lodge for the price and just a shade below what you might experience at the higher end Serena. The Staff were especially friendly, and we always felt welcome after our return each day from safari. We stayed at the Sopa for four nights - the rooms are very comfortable, good sized showers, and very comfortable beds. The food is good and plenty to eat - the only negative might be that because we were there four nights we got to eat the same menu more than once. But, buffet style was great. We do recommend the Mara Sopa Lodge as a great destination (and Affable Safaris and Tours).
