My hisband and I were on safari in June 2012 in Kenya and Tanzania. We had the good fortune to have several nights at the Soroi. What a treat!! The hosts were welcoming, the staff attentive, food options satisfying, the rooms comfortable and well appointed. And the view from our deck was beyond description - after experiencing all that there was at Soroi, we could have easily spent our entire vacation in this idylic setting. Would love to return to Soroi, and do exactly that. What a treasure at the end of the road.

Room Tip: All rooms have a (WOW!) view.

After two nights in a tented lodge, it was great to spend a night at the more permanent Soroi Serengeti Lodge.

While the Lodge is positioned on a hilltop to take advantage of the view, be prepared for a 45 minute drive on a very bumpy road to get there. The service was very good and the rooms are large and comfortable. Dinner was good and breakfast was great. There is a nice pool that we did not use.

The main dining room/lounge is beautiful and reminiscent of a great African hunting lounge. The views are spectacular--we watched elephants and giraffes grazing in the valley as we had breakfast.

Room Tip: Make sure you leave the outdoor shower faucets covered or the monkeys will turn it on and use your hot water allotment.

We stayed here because the lodge we had booked for was not yet open -and we are glad we did. The 'road' to the lodge -I use the term loosely -is a VERY long 21 km. It's so bumpy and as it's in the western corridor there are pesky flies in places (but not at the lodge which is 5000 ft above sea level). On arrival, the first thing you notice is the stunning architecture of the main reception buidings -and the welcoming staff. THe lodges all have stunning views with a private balcony plus outside shower. The bathroom is large with bath & handheld shower (I found the outside one a bit chilly). The king-sized bed had smooth cotton sheets and decent pillows and was very comfortable. We did ask for an extra blanket as it was cold when we stayed and they did have a problem finding one -they had them on order, (along with sink plugs) but they found one for us. We found all the staff very obliging & friendly.
Staff deliver flasks of boiling water if you want to make a hot drink in the lodge -and will bring one first thing in the morning for an early morning cuppa (you book the time after your evening meal). You have to have an escort to the restaurant (golf buggy that reminded me of the old tv series the 'Prisoner')
The soft drinks /tea & coffee are included in the price. We enjoyed the food and had a good choice. The picnic box was very generous.
One nice touch -each guest can have a set of clothes laundered free (can pay for more if you want)
There is a pool which we didn't have time to use. Internet is free and accessed by one of the reception laptops.
Once they get that road smoothed out it will be an even better place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 1 is right next to the restaurant so doesn't need the services of the 'buggy' -but it gets the noise of guards & guests leaving the restaurant! (canvas walls of the lodges) so others may be quieter.

We stayed in four tent camps while on safari in Kenya and Tanzania. This was by far the most sparse. The bedroom is small with a bed, desk and night tables. The door to the bathroom is not a door at all but swinging doors, and we're not in a saloon. With a husband who gets up several times in the night, those doors were annoying. The dining room is way up on the hill, which leads to gorgeous views, and you are taken up by golf cart. However, the sound of a golf cart backing up makes a noise that pierces the ears. The deck view was great, but the two camp chairs were not very attractive or comfortable and did not make the deck feel like a luxury experience. Food was ok, nothing great. Bar is outsourced, so you have to pay for your purchases with cash, which our tour company neglected to tell us. Just a warning to you since we're so used to credit card purchases in the U.S.

Room Tip: These rooms are on all hills, which makes the views so good. If you have a physical challenge, you should let them know so you're close to reception.

My family and I stayed at Soroi Serengeti Lodge the first two nights we were in the Serengeti. We were amazed at its beauty and splendor. Everywhere we went someone was there to help us. The two women who were running the place checked in on us several times. With the exception of one meal (the lamb was overcooked), everything was wonderful. The staff all learned our names, calling my wife "mama-Barbara". They even surprised her with a birthday cake and sang two Swahilli songs to us, while dancing around our table. The rooms and ambiance were very special. It was such a quite, wonderful beginning to our 10 day trip with Africa Dream Safaris. I would make a special trip to spend a night in Soroi.
