We stayed for a couple of nights. Liked the hut style of room which was big and comfortable. Pool area looked clean. We walked up the the Hemingway bar but it didn't appear to be open or in use which was odd. The restaurant was good with plenty of choice all very well presented. The hotel held a bush dinner...

Stayed here at the amboseli sopa lodge for 2 nights and the staff and amenities are fantastic.....we only paid for drinks as meals were included on our trip, the food was excellent in my opinion (everybody has an opinion).

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night at the end of our safari and were really impressed. Our room was large with a great shower and bathroom. The dining room and bar area are both excellent while the buffet style meals were also very good. Only downside is the 30 minute drive to the National park.

We stayed at Amboseli Sopa lodge in August. The staff were friendly, rooms were clean and food was delicious. We didn't spend much time at the lodge between game drives, but the facility is above basics and includes a swimming pool that we didn't use but it looked clean. Here you will see some Masai Mara tribesmen at the lodge... More

We stayed at the Amboseli Sopa Lodge for two nights on the first leg of our 6 night Kenya safari trip. A few things travelers should probably take note of. First, the lodge is situated about 20 km away from the closest gate to the Amboseli National Park, which means that getting to and from the park will take in... More

We stayed here during June 2016. The hotel was nice and the rooms were comfortable. The only downside was the location. We had to travel around 30 mins to the park on a very bumpy and dusty road. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay.

Totally agree with the reviews saying that Amboseli Sopa Lodge is not as good as other lodges of the same chain (I have stayed at Amboseli, Taragire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro) but it is very good nonetheless (it would help a lot if they adopted the curtain-like mosquito net utilized in their other lodges). The main downside for me though was... More

Stayed in many Sopa lodges and this isn't quite as good as some of the others! Still a lovely place to stay, rooms are spacious, staff couldn't be more helpful, not quite as good location as some other Sopa lodges but still convenient! Hot water and electricity isn't available 24/7, there are only certain times that it can be used... More

This is a lodge which is welcoming and unique in its own way. Great for for families. Don't expect great internet/wifi/TV, as you are in the jungle. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They make you feel at home with their friendly 'Jambo' disposition! You cannot miss a photo with the 7ft Masai, Sammy. Once the sun comes up... More

Stayed here on the last leg of a safari package, not quite to the same standard as the Amboseli Sopa, however, rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Bathroom window didn't have glass in the top panel just mesh which was a bit concerning as wildlife including monkeys randomly wander around the park. Security will escort you to your room... More
