Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Serengeti Sopa Lodge overview

Looking out over the seemingly endless Serengeti plains, Serengeti Sopa Lodge is a hillside lodge in a tranquil oasis set in over 14,000 sq kms (5,000 sq miles) of National Park. The Serengeti plains are host to a dramatic annual migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and numerous other species of animals indigenous to the area. The lodge offers game drives to view wildlife in the park.

Serengeti Sopa Lodge is located in the Nyarboro Hills in the south west of the Serengeti National Park and is the only tourism development in this section of the park. Year round water and the acacia woodland in this area create an ideal environment for the wide variety of wildlife seen in the immediate vicinity of the lodge. The lodge has magnificent views over the Serengeti plains. 

The lodge has 69 rooms and 4 twin-storey suites. Each of the rooms has a lounge area with a mini bar, a bedroom with two queen size beds and ample room for a third, an en-suite bathroom. They also have balconies with stunning views over the plains. The suites are still more spacious and have bedroom and bathroom on the upper floor and a sitting and dining area with an outdoor terrace beneath.

Georgina Jaffee

"Again well situated lodge but too many people and became very noisy- a bit like a holiday camp. i would not stay here again and sensitive tourists would not like this if the hotel is full as it becomes very congested and quite unplesant. Would have preferred smaller hotel or camping but we did make this choice bacause it was the rainy season..etc so not complaining just...commenting!"

Heather McNally
"Amazing location. Good food and excellent service."
Mr. Alan Barber
"Much the same as Ngorongoro .but no (need for) hot water bottles! Great views across the park from our window."
