The resort and grounds were beautiful, clean and well maintained. It is a unique place to stay with your own little lodge in the beautiful Kenyan style. The staff is wonderful and very friendly, they are willing to help make your stay pleasant any way they can. If you'd love to get a feel for Kenyan culture just invite a... More

We were happy with the hotel and had a very good safari. were lucky enough to see the big five in Masai Mara. The daily spread of food at the buffet was a good and there was variety. There was no tea/coffee service in the room. On our return I had two fraudulent transactions on my credit cards. Card details... More

The staff were very welcoming. We were taken to our room to settle in before going on our first game drive. Our room was one half of a small, circular chalet. It was more than adequate and had all the necessary amenities apart from tea and coffee making facilities. Having said that we were lucky enough to be fairly close... More

We had a BBQ for Dinner and i Must say it was very Delicious, the... More

If you want tarmac on your roads then this isn't the place for you. For us however it was all part of the fun of it. Our bladders have all been tested to the limit (and nearly beyond!) We stayed for 3 nights as part of the Hakuna Matata safari package with Natural World/Africa Safari.. The usual Sopa Lodge welcome... More

This was the third Sopa lodge on our Safari trip. Though the entire property at large had a great feel. It was rather dated and the worst part was that it was packed, so we got a room way............. up and beyond. It was a really arduous trek from the reception area and the restaurant and no wifi in the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Kenyan safari. We loved this lodge, due to it's great location in the park, and due to the friendly staff and relaxed setting. The individual rooms are huge, and well appointed, with a little balcony looking out over the gardens. The pool area is very nice and Elvis the pool bartender... More

After dealing with the roads to the masai mara it was nice to sit in some comfy seats and have a dip in the pool. The food on offer was delicious. They had a buffet with so much on offer and it was cooked so well. The room was a bit basic but compared to the other lodges at the... More
