Stayed here overnight as part of our safari. The lodge is a little run down. Rooms look old and the views not great from the ground level rooms. The view from the pool and bar area are lovely. Crowded with big groups coming in. Food is good with a big selection on the buffet. We did a birding walk with... More

Facing long hours along dusty tracks in our way from the Tarangire National Park to the Serengeti National Park was exhausting, so arriving at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge felt like a well-deserved reward. I don’t know why but my husband and I were designated to one of the four lodge’s double storey suites which are spectacular! The view from the... More

A good hotel right in the Serengeti, takes some getting to along bumpy tracks but well worth it to have great access to the wildlife. Food was buffet style and taking into account the number of guests being served was of a good standard. The standout was the staff, extremely friendly and helpful, especially my mate Everest who remembered our... More

Stayed here as part of a big group on a safari. The safari was magnificent (and the Serengeti National Park was unbelievably good). The hotel was not bad, clean and with good friendly staff, but the whole complex was a bit tired, as were the individual rooms. Food was fine but again nothing special. Never open the screen doors for... More

This hotel is in a remote location - inside the Serengeti National Park - and we were relieved and amazed to find this comfortable and hospitable hotel at the end of a long day's drive and game viewing, and to be greeted with hot towels and a fruit drink. The bedrooms were huge with two large comfortable beds, nets, a... More

Having stayed at another Sopa lodge, this much older property is not maintained to the level you would hope. An important issue is that they turn off hot water at 9pm and back on at 6am. Most safaris return just in time for an 8pm dinner and the hot water is gone by the time you get back to your... More

Great hotel in the middle of Serengeti. Spacious (but old) rooms with a spectacular view. The beds was good and the housekeeping was really great. Thank you David for taking so good care of us. The food was really good and the service was great. Everyone was so kind and friendly to us. If you go to Serengeti I absolutely... More

This is a rather big lodge with well appointed and large rooms. All rooms have balconies with a view of the Serengeti. Beds are comfortable but not too large. The bathroom was big with a nice shower. Free WiFi in the reception and restaurant area. Dinner and breakfast were buffet style with reasonable choices. Safaris were classic with a landrover... More

We stayed at mainly Sopa lodges during our 2 week safari of Kenya & Tanzania. This is a large complex just like the large Serengeti Park. It has big areas for the reception and dining, plenty of knooks and crannies and balconies to relax on. Our ground level room was very comfy with inter-joining rooms for our 3 generation family...

Good hotel with a happy hour show! The food was excellent at the buffet all you can eat! There's a pool if you need to swim. The wifi is sparse in the rooms, but available in the lobby. It was very cold at night, and there should be a heater in the room!
