The location of Sopa Lodge is amazing, with an impressive view on the crater. Nice to see monkeys in the gardens and by the pool. Rooms are old fashioned, and the food was probably on of our least good during our trip.

The hotel has amazing hospitality, from the reception, guards, restaurant staff and even pool attendant. The views from the rooms and pool are paranomic! A few small wildlife even get close enough to the rooms. The food was fresh and tasty, with the best African tea ever! Rooms are big, comfortable beds, always clean! Nets even drawn for you in...

Stayed here for three days in Dec of 2016. The lodge is at the very edge of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve and very close to the Reserve's Oloolaimutia Gate. Actually, there is no telling where one begins and the other ends!. During our stay there were lots of Dik-Dik, a species of small antelope, dotting the grounds at night....

The Mara Sopa is in a great location within the park. The food was really great and service was amazing. The room was nice and had a fully stocked bathroom. The views from the pool are incredible and breathtaking. I wish we had more time here to enjoy the pool and atomosphere. A very lovely spot on the Masai Mara.

This was actually my least favourite hotel in Kenya. While the grounds and sitting areas were nice, the Food and Rooms were far from it. Room: The room was very very small, especially given that there were 3 of us. There was no internet/ No fridge/ No Aircon and No Fan. It wasn’t a very comfortable stay at all as...

Great location within the park, excellent food, superb service from all staff and always with a smile. The room was large and simple but charming with a fully stocked bathroom. Truly felt the troubles fall off our shoulders and embraced being in the countryside with the sights, sounds and starlight.
