We get room 11 in a double cottage with a thatched roof. So far it looks good: the cottages are like brown mushrooms, quite a nice design, and they definitely don't spoil the view as they are rather unobtrusive. Two big queen beds with mosquito nets but no repellents and the bathroom is dirty. Wi-fi is supposed to be good...

Spent two nights here and it was lovely. So peaceful and quiet and the staff were just fantastic. The restaurant manager Caesar was so attentive and always had a smile on his face. The hotel is well placed in the middle of the park so the fame drives are always nice. One of our favourite experiences there was when a...

Average. Some good sites to see while eating in the dinning room. Have not really been that keen on most of the sopa lodges. The power only on certain times of the day and wi-fi only in lobby. It's a little disappointing.

I just loved the Samburu Sopa Lodge! Samburu is one of my favourite places in the world - the park is exploding with wildlife and there is always something new to see! The Sopa Lodge was SOOO comfortble, the people are extremely kind and love their wildlife. Take your time and speak with some of the security guards and other...

After an overnight stay at the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, our next halt was to be at the Sopa Lodge at the Samburu sanctuary. This reserve is in an area which has been in the grip of a drought and the aridity and the bleakness of the landscape is a stark contrast to the greenery and lushness of the...

The restaurant was nice with a small water hole that had occasional visitors, nothing big. lots of lovely birds that have become tame.good photos! Staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were in need of a refurb , lots of niggley things so easy to correct if the rooms were effectively checked between guests.

Great lodge ran well. Rooms were very nice and it felt like you are sleeping outside. The size of the rooms are fantastic and the layout perfect. Baboons are every so do keep the doors locked. A small watering hole is next to the dinning hall so you can see giraffe or wart hogs or zebra on a morning. Service...

This lodge is set in beautiful grounds with a waterhole where a variety of animals visit to drink. They are the star of this show. Food is very bland. Staff are good but expect tipping for the slightest of tasks. We only had two small cases but it took two people to take them to the room. We could have...

We stayed here with our two girls for two nights as part of the Hakuna Matata safari package. Our lodges were comfortable and we loved the view of the watering hole from our room. The thatched roof design of the lodges and the screened windows allowed a cooling mosquito free breeze at night. The main bar and restaurant area of...

My friend and I stayed here for two nights. When we first arrived the reception staff seemed slightly unorganised however there were quite a large number of people who arrived. The reception staff could have been friendlier however the rest of the staff were great. The rooms were very nice and spacious and the shower worked great. There was also...
