I enjoyed Mara Sopa quite a lot. The staff is very friendly and the resort is beautiful. The food is above average but they can do better. They need to serve more local cuisines. They have free wi-fi in the bar area that is quite fast and efficient. I don't understand the need for a pool. For a remote district...

We stayed here whilst on a Safari tour as part of our deal. I thought the hotel rooms were an excellent size and very clean. I did have a couple of issues however. Firstly there was no safe in our room and it had clearly been 'removed' from the wall. The only alternative we were offered was to leave all...

A great Safari Resort in the Masai Mara. Not 5 star, but very close. Nice rooms with private sitting/viewing area. The main lodge hosted many great activities and events. This Resort in minutes from viewing Lion, Elephants, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Water Buffalo, Crocodile, Zebra - you name it!! Perfect location in the Masai Mara.

We couldn't imagine how many animals are living in that area and how close we could get to them. We saw four out of The Big Five (Rhino we spotted in...

Our stay at the Sopa Lodge was decent. For a lodge in the Masai Mara reserve, it met our 'general' expectations. The staff is friendly, the grounds are well kept and the restaurant served good food. However, I'd like to put this out there as a warning to anyone that chooses to stay at this lodge. The staff (cleaners or...

Our journey by van to the Mara Sopa lodge was extremely uncomfortable due to the large pot holes - we have 5 hours of it! however the lodge was a nice relaxing relief. The rooms adequate, always hot water, a large shower area, huge bed, and we enjoyed the food here. I did spend some time by the swimming pool,...

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at the Mara Sopa Lodge. From reception staff and the bartenders to restaurant staff and security, everyone treated me with such kindness. I was traveling alone and enjoyed their hospitality and good cheer. The room was also beautiful! Even though I saw pictures on Tripadvisor in advance, I wasn't prepared for how cool...
