Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Serengeti Sopa Lodge is a bright, comfortable lodge offering hotel-style amenities and comfortable rooms in the southern Serengeti plains.

Serengeti Sopa Lodge is set in the Nyarboro Hills, on a sparsely-forested kopje overlooking a vast expanse of savannah. It is a large lodge, with 73 rooms and a wealth of facilities. Hardly an intimate bush camp, then, but those looking for a comfortable, good-value lodge with hotel-style amenities will find Sopa Lodge appealing. The service here is meticulous, the atmosphere generally relaxed, and the amenities very good. Just don’t expect the privacy of a luxury bush camp.

As well as offering good value, Serengeti Sopa Lodge has the advantage of a great location in the southern region of the Serengeti, where you can expect to see the annual wildebeest migration during April/May.

Accommodation

Serengeti Sopa Lodge offers 73 rooms, all identical except for four lavish two-storey suites. The rooms are simply furnished, eschewing the standard 'colonial’-themed furnishings or traditional African decor that are a feature of so many safari camps. Carpets and bright local fabrics give a bit of colour to the rooms. Furnishings in each room include writing desk and two large queen-size beds. One nice touch is the wide windows, which open out onto a private balcony with a view of the savannah.

The suites are similar, only much larger and equipped with private lounge as well as king-size bed.

Dining

Buffet meals are served in the comfortable dining room, with a view of the Serengeti plains.
