Set in 200 acres of private land, and with a rustic charm all of its own, the lodge nestles in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro which, at almost six thousand metres, is Africa’s highest and most famous snowcapped mountain. It was this region of Kenya that, in the 1930’s, inspired Ernest Hemingway’s unforgettable stories ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’ and ‘The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber’ which were turned into more than successful feature films in the late 1940’s due to their renowned actors. All forms of wildlife still abound in this wilderness which continues all the way to the Amboseli National Park, an easy twenty minute drive away from the lodge.
Rustic, well spaced cottages meander through the vast expanse of mature gardens and house eighty three guest rooms. These are all brightly decorated with Maasai themed wall murals, and each room has been purpose built to contain either one or two queen sized beds as well as a veranda.
"Wonderful time in Amboseli We had a wonderful two night stay at Sopa this November. We picked the lodge for the superb food and great grounds and our expectation was more than met. The game drives to the park were excellent and it was the perfect start for our Kenya safaris. Although a bit outside the park it was well worth it. Thanks for the hospitality"

"Beautiful and relaxing This was the first stop of 3 for us on our safari. We were greeted with the warmest welcome from Sammy! We were then taken to our rooms which I thought were soooooo adorable! Exactly what I would hope to stay in while in Africa! And there were so many adorable monkeys running around the property!"
"Friendly staff, management and excellent buffet style food Quite a big lodge and so it is quite nice thats its big enough to take some nice walks just around the lodge. The pool was clean (unlike other lodges we went to in kenya) and a good temperature"
"Very very memorable stay A lodge with luxury - complete satisfactory stay. Very very spacious rooms with requisite amenities. The lodge itself offers very good ambience and view. Highly hospitable services by the staff and very good WiFi speed"
