Serengeti Sopa Lodge

If you want four walls and a roof around you rather than canvas, consider Sopa Lodge.  It is a large lodge with personality in a great spot in Central Serengeti and offers good value.  It’s fabulous for a family holiday.

Pass through Naabi gate and turn left, heading south west to the Nyarboro Hills.  This area of Serengeti is wildlife rich and is on one of the many migration highways.

Part of the Sopa family of lodges, this 73-bed lodge is set in acacia woodland on top of a fabulous hill side, offering commanding views over the plains below. Unlike the other Sopa Lodges the building has a flat roof rather than the conical shape.  Large floor to ceiling windows deliver expansive views of Serengeti from various corners of the lodge.

The lodge is bright, colourful and fun, the pool is fantastic, and for a large lodge we think it has character.  The staff are incredibly friendly some of whom have been working there for years.

Serengeti Sopa Lodge highlights

  • High concentration of mammals
  • A lodge rather than tented camp
  • On one of the main migration routes
  • Large kidney shape swimming pool
  • Good for families
