Sopa Lodge - Samburu Reservat
The lodge is built atop raised ground allowing panoramic views of distant Samburu hills to one side and El Ndonyo Keri
(Samburu name for Mt. Kenya) on the other.
Samburu Sopa Lodge is situated 325 kms from Nairobi, in the middle of the park, next to the new Oryx airstrip.
It is accessible from the main Isiolo – Moyale road at both Ngare Mara as well as Archers post junctions.
The public areas are airy and spacious with views of the surrounding area. The reception is decorated with local artifacts,
and rich earth colours typical of the Samburu area have been well blended.
We recommend this camp for all guests who start their safari directly from the airport and like to relax one or two days
before they go for game drive! Rock Side Camp is even a beautiful place for an stopover, if you are on the way from Nairobi
Thirty cottages forming buffalo horn pattern converge at the public facilities area, leaving the open end to free movement of
the wildlife to access the waterhole. The architecture blends in with the area, to keep up with the style of the housing by
the local Samburu people. Each cottage has two tastefully appointed bedrooms, each with two queen size beds, shower and
private verandah. Local material has been used in the construction, furnishings and interior decoration. High ceilings and
space ensure that the rooms are airy and comfortable.
Two rooms next to the reception and public areas are designed for the physically challenged.
Located next to the lobby, it has a an uninterrupted view of the surrounding area.
The dining room has a beautiful view and once again the same theme is carried through, including the furniture which is
unusually carved, and the chairs have a cow horn shape on the back rest. Local stones and materials are tastefully displayed
bringing nature into the lodge.
