This hotel had great food and really lovely staff, I came to see the great migration which was fantastic and staying at a great hotel within the park made it all so easy. The room was clean and there was a fire to sit near in the lounge.

Stayed here on safari with natural world tours. Lovely lodges with a true African feel. Nice African decor and lovely food. The free tea/coffee all day and open fires in the bar each evening created a lovely atmosphere. Not very modern but had lots of character and very clean. Fresh towels and hot water each day, turn down service each... More

It was awesome. The staff are really friendly, amenities really accomodating. Every room had a twin bed and hot shower and we all had our personal safes to keep our belongings. Has an in-compound swimming pool which is always clean. Food is yummy and great appreciation for as many cultures as they can.

A surprising find at the end of a very lumpy Masai Mara Park road that needs Govt funding to improve. All was forgotten, lovely setting as you walk down into round reception and everything else is also round and welcoming, Nice bar area where we had local Masai perform in the evening, nice dining room and great food. The rooms... More

Given the price and location, I thought this would be a not so comfortable stay as it was. Rooms are a delight actually and the harder beds were perfect for me. The buffet was good, especially during bbq nights. Wifi worked ok given the location in the middle of the Kenyan outskirts. Only complaint is the lunch actually, where it... More

We chose the Mara Sopa for the low cost so didn't expect too many comforts. The lodge has all the basics; rooms are compact and clean, the grounds and decor are delightful and the pool is adequate. The food was a tad ordinary and lacking in variety but it's still our first day. The staff are friendly and helpful though... More

We stayed here for one night, thought it was a little tired . It is not the place to stay if you are a couple looking for something different , to commercial for us. Rooms need updating , and were very hot. Ask for a fan , but it never appeared .

This was my 3rd lodge in Kenya in a 2 week safari holiday and sorry to say i was disappointed I thought the Mara would be the best but the road trip to get to the lodge was a 2 hour very long very bumpy road one that rattled every bone in your body. The lodge was basic and small... More

After a long drive through rough roads and terrain, we were pleasantly surprised to arrive at the very attractive Mara Sopa Lodge. There we stayed in a stylized hut which was bisected so that two families/couples shared a hut. The huts were well equipped but it should be noted that electricity is off during the day and hot water is... More
