Masai Mara Sopa Lodge

This was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their center.

The lodge has fifty guest cottages divided into two wings to either side of the main public areas. Each of these house two spacious guest rooms with queen and king size beds, mosquito nets, electronic safes, dressing tables, en-suite bathrooms, and sheltered verandas that all have views over the gardens and the game reserve beyond.

The Amboseli Sopa lodge

Set in 200 acres of private land, and with a rustic charm all of its own, the lodge nestles in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro which, at almost six thousand meters, is Africa’s highest and most famous snow-capped mountain.

It was this region of Kenya that, in the 1930’s, inspired Ernest Hemingway’s unforgettable stories ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’ and ‘The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber’ which were turned into more than successful feature films in the late 1940’s due to their renowned actors. All forms of wildlife still abound in this wilderness which continues all the way to the Amboseli National Park, an easy twenty minute drive away from the lodge.

Rustic, well spaced cottages meander through the vast expanse of the lodge's mature gardens and house our eighty three guest rooms. These are all brightly decorated with Maasai themed wall murals, and each room has been purpose built to contain either one or two queen sized beds as well as a veranda.

Location

Kenya claims some of the world's most beautiful National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Areas which teem with countless species of birds and truly wild animals, and which also host a family Sopa Lodges. These have all been individually designed to compliment and blend in with the magnificent surroundings of their environments while reflecting the themes and influences of Equatorial African cultures and their art.

Large open-plan areas and cottage-style guest rooms nestle unobtrusively into the vastness of Africa, and are representative of the traditions of the local inhabitants who make up the rich tapestry of Kenya. The location of every facility at all has been carefully chosen to promise you the best views over the wilderness while also offering an unrivaled ambiance amongst cool and elegant surroundings.

This safari starts in Nairobi while activities take place in Maasai Mara Game Reserve Nakuru, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Amboseli National Park.
