Samburu Sopa Lodge has an attractive location within the Samburu National Reserve with panoramic views of distant rolling hills to one side and Mt. Kenya on the other.
It is the only lodge in Samburu to have a waterhole, so after a day of game drives out on the plains guests can spend lazy evenings relaxing in the comfort of the lobby or their bedroom veranda and view various animals coming to drink.
As part of the popular Sopa group of properties, Samburu Sopa Lodge offers comfortable and affordable accommodation right in the heart of the Samburu game park. It is surrounded by plains and hills – home to a wide variety of wildlife including the key animals for which Kenya is famous.
Samburu Sopa Lodge has 30 cottages. Each is spacious with a high ceiling and has been designed to blend in to the area using local materials in the construction and interior furnishings. Each cottage is split into two guest bedrooms, each with two queen size beds, en suite facilities (shower and wc) and a private veranda.
Two rooms next to the reception and public areas are wheelchair-adapted.
