We had a 4 day safari in the Mara. We spent 2nights at Mara Sopa. Better than expected. The rooms were decent..no complaints. The food was amazing. Great variety for all meals. My sister had an issue with her shower and they quickly rectified it. They were happy to provide ice for our cooler box which was great.

Spent 2 enjoyable nights at the lodge with my wife. The first thing that struck me was that it so well hidden that it appears to come out of nowhere. Rooms were good as were the buffet style meals. They were pretty full at the time but everything seemed to go smoothly. The nice outdoor pool would be a bonus... More

My family and I concluded a wonderful safari trip to Kenya with a three night stay at the Mara Sopa lodge. Another typical safari lodge, it suited are requirements perfectly. Each cabana houses two rooms that are connected with a door. Ideal for two families traveling together. But if not, it doesn't pose much of an issue. The strangers next... More

Most rooms lacked privacy, looking in to others or on to pathways. There is no soundproofing between adjoining rooms or to the outside, so slamming doors and loud conversations were a problem. The dining area was overcrowded with long queues at each meal. I'd recommend staying closer to the Mara River as it's a long drive from Sopa Lodge to... More

I paid $248 for One night- full board. What do you understand with full board?? Surely water or soft drinks are included? No...they were not. I felt the place was a rip off. I was out all day so I didn't really need to stay in a lush lodge. On my side, I booked too late. I was lucky I... More

We spent two nights here while on safari in the Masai Mara. The lodge was lovely but the wall between us and our adjoining neighbours was a bit too thin, not a lot was not heard! The grounds were beautifully maintained and the views, breath taking. The staff were very friendly a smile and "Jambo" as we passed. We managed... More

Nice accomodations, excellent vegetable soup, adorable monkeys in the area, spotty wifi (like most safari hotels) rooms were old, mosquitos were an issue, like most safari hotels, they great you with juice and a hot towel.

The lodge was pretty good, but it's about 25 minutes from the park entrance which means waking up extra early and a lengthy drive after a full game drive from park exit to the comfort of your bed. It was very nice though with a pool and nice bar/fire pit area. The staff was incredible friendly as well. Felt very... More

Stayed here as part of a Kenya Classic Safari, clean, tidy smart hotel in the middle of the Masai....ok, so the road into it is rough, but aren't most of the roads? all part of the fun. Couldn't fault the hotel, food or staff, very attentive when I forgot the safe code (oops). Just watch out for the monkeys.....
