My husband and I stayed here for three nights. Loved it. The first glimpse of the lodge from the outside is not all that impressive but that all changes when you enter the lobby and are welcomed into a cool oasis. Staff bring out warm towels and glasses of cool juice. The décor is in keeping with the area. After our long hike to our room at the Ngorongoro Sopa, we had the best room in the house we think. Room #27 which is the first room off the lobby, second floor. The view out over the Serengeti was breathtaking. We sat out on our balcony soaking it all in. Make sure you lock your balcony doors as we had a monkey eyeing us waiting for us to go in and he was on the balcony in a flash once we did. The grounds were very nice with a pool (which we never got around to using) and tables looking down over the Serengeti. The restaurant had excellent food but the stars were the staff, in particular Baracka who was our waiter for all our meals. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. When my husband was not feeling well he had the kitchen make him a special infusion. He was so warm and personable, he really made a big impression on us. And then our last night we were presented with a cake with Kwaheri (goodbye) on it. We were so touched. Thank you Sopa!
