Mara Sopa Lodge - Masai Mara Safari, Kenya

Sopa means "Welcome" in Maasai language. Masai Mara Sopa Lodge is set in the Oloolaimutia valley, where the lodge totally blends in perfectly with its surrounding hillside landscape. The accent here is on the Maasai tribe, and the fabulous wealth of wildlife, bird life, and natural flora to be found in the fabled Masai Mara National Reserve.

ACCOMMODATION

  • The lodge is located 206 km south of the Equator on the eastern boundary of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in southwestern Kenya, 2 km from the Oloolaimutia Gate. The reserve, the best-known game area in East Africa, is 1,120 sq. km of prime safari wildlife-viewing territory bordering the Serengeti National Park.
  • The lodge has an altitude of 2,104 meters (6,400 feet) above sea level, and because of the cool breeze through the valley it is located in, it enjoys warm days and cool evenings. The April / June, October / November rainy season ensured that the reserve is verdant almost throughout the year. Only the lightest of clothes are recommended although a light sweater might be needed for early mornings and late evenings. More formal attire might be advisable for cocktails and theme evenings, while swimwear is needed by the pool.
  • Masai Mara Sopa Lodge has 200 beds by way of 77 rooms, 12 suites and 1 Presidential suite, all of which are 'rondavel' style and have en-suite bathroom facilities, which provide shaving sockets and hairdryers.
