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... More

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... More

The dining hall overlooks a waterhole and one could see lot of birds and animals.The rooms are spacious but the shower had no pressure. Food was excellent. Since we... More

We stayed here with our two teenage children for two nights. Our lodges were comfortable but both toilets were in need of repair. The design of the lodges meant that there was a cooling mosquito free breeze at night. The main area of the lodge was nicely built and the organic shapes complemented the landscapes. The swimming pool was good... More

It is a good option although the quality of the food and the wifi are not amazing. On the other side, it has a nice pool, only 30 rooms so the attention is good and the room are big, even with 2 double beds. Important note: first night dinner was a closed menu. I tried the vegetarian option and I... More

The lodge is well located in the National Reserve, with a waterhole in front of the restaurant that attracts many animals. The lodge is beautifully designed, with the restaurant in the middle and the rooms arching out on both sides. Our room was basic but comfortable, surrounded by nature. The food was somewhat disappointing, with not much variety and not... More

I was there just after rainy season, so it was pretty quite and peaceful. I enjoyed to area and atmosphere. It is right a river. So close, that my first night I was startled , while reading in my room, by a Hippo splashing in to the river! Animal viewing possibilities are some of the best in Kenya.

My friend and i visited Samburu Sopa after a grueling day hiking the Ololokwe mountain. We called Mr Karanja the manager to inform him that we were running late as our hike took longer than anticipated . He assured us not to worry , that they would wait for us and that he would have one of the game rangers... More
