Panafric Hotel

Panafric Hotel is located idyllically 5 minutes from Nairobi CBD and only 18km from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Samburu Sopa Lodge

Located inside the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya, Samburu Sopa lodge is built atop high ground allowing panoramic views of the vastness of Samburu shrub land and the hills beyond. The lodge is built to reflect the architectural heritage of the local communities whose sons and daughters make up the majority of the work force at the lodge. Fifteen cottages, each with two bedrooms are built in an arch formation on either side of the public areas to surround the waterhole but leaving a wide gap to allow the animals free movement to the water.

The lodge is located within Samburu National Reserve (Approximately 300km from Nairobi)

Naivasha Sopa Lodge

Set in 150 acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to our resident giraffes, waterbucks 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 our expansive lawns.

Mara Sopa Lodge

Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai 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 centre.

Masai Mara is the new seventh wonder of the modern world, famous for the migration of wilder beasts.

The camp is located approximately 250 Kilometers from Nairobi.
