You will be staying at various accommodation during the safari.

Mara Sopa Lodges

Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Maasai Mara Sopa Lodge 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.

Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodges

Located on a range of hills that form the western limits of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, the lodge offers spectacular views over the vastness of Africa. The lodge also overlooks Lake Nakuru and its surrounding national park, one that is a paradise for bird watchers and wildlife lovers alike. Lake Nakuru National Park is mainly a wooded and bushy grassland with a wide ecological diversity and characteristic habitats that range from the lake waters to the escarpment and ridges.

Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort

Set in 150 acres of grassland studded with acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to our resident giraffe, waterbuck and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on the expansive lawns.

With Sopa’s traditional and conscientious care for the environment, they carefully positioned all the buildings on the property so they did not have to fill any of the many trees there. As a result of this, they had to come up with a radically innovative and artistic design for the main public area building, which now snakes its way between the trees with long and graceful curves.

Amboseli Sopa Lodges

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 6000 meters, is Africa’s highest and most famous snow-capped mountain.

It was this region of Kenya that, in the 1930s, 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 1940s 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 20-minute drive away from the lodge.

Ngulia Safari Camp

Ngulia Safari Lodge is located in Tsavo West National Park with 52 rooms facing the vast wilderness and en-suite bathrooms facilities. Ngulia Safari Lodge is one of the lodges with a great view of Kilimanjaro and overlooking the famous rhino sanctuary, which is the largest in the world hence guaranteeing the encounter with the rare African animal.
