Arrival to this property was wow, just wow. Lobby was beautiful, and when we were escorted to our room . . . my jaw dropped. Huge, immaculate space ~~ Crazy gorgeous view from balcony.

Now, bar & outside space. Oh my, perfection. So much so that champagne was in order. A staff person was patient as we decided which spot (each one more perfect than the other) we were going to land in. The server made a fun production of the champagne experience. Both guys took photos that rivaled a professional photo shoot :) Super fun dudes!!

We returned 2 days later and shared a bottle of wine (courtesy of Good Earth Tours:) on our balcony for a private sundowner, as antelope grazed in the distance. So serene!

Dining was beyond nice. Sure, lots of people, it’s a large property, but who cares. Our waiter was on spot with service. Friendly & seemingly unhurried. Food was from menu, delicious & plenty!

We definitely would recommend a Sopa as a choice to mix up your safari accommodations.

One note: Take your shower before dinner. Water & dinner both end at about the same time.

Do remember that traveling in Serengeti is expensive..even sopa is not luxury but still cost 330dollars per night,..
Anyway..though it's in serona area..still not a good location..need to drive for a while to find animals.
Except this..room is very big, clean and comfortable.better to be wiz family.swimming pool and the view is great!staff are friendly.breakfast is ok.dinner is a le cate (I would prefer buffet actually)beef is good but dessert is bad....
Wifi is ok but only in the lobby.
I stayed in sopa from 1st of July to 3nd of July...very cold in the morning and evening..remember to put on ur jacket!!!

I'm used to staying in luxury hotels, and this was a bit of a come down for me. But I was in the middle of the Serengeti therefore in that sense it did the job. It was a large room, very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was large and spacious too. Dinner is served in a large communal sitting, with only set menus and very rushed. In my opinion the dining experience, should be improved. More choice and they shouldn't rush customers. Particularly as there is nothing else to do there. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable, the wifi was good and they spray your rooms with mosquito spray to prevent you getting bitten by them. That was a nice little touch.

The best way to sum up our visit is that we wished we had stayed more than one night. A lovely location, a beautiful setting, lovely room and communal area, friendly, helpful staff. and overall well-done. Wifi in the communal area.

The lodge is situated at the foot of a small mountain and you have a great view over the plains of the Serengeti. Good chance to observe wild animals from the lodge.
Good view from all the rooms. Well-equipped spacious room, comfortable bed and a big bathroom with a good shower.
The service in the restaurant is very warm and enjoyable. The variety of the choice for breakfast is very good, food quality too.

This lodge is spread out along the hill so that each room has a view over the Serengeti. The landscaping is well kept and interesting. The rooms are big and clean and quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was varied and tasty. I had reason to need a doctor's advice and he gave me some pills at no charge.

This is a clean, well kept property with a nice lobby, sitting area, and dining room. The rooms are similar to standard type motel rooms in the US but have a small deck. The beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly. There is a computer with internet available for guests, but it is quite highly used.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are joined and some are separate small cabins. The separate ones are more private...
