Samburu Sopa Lodge has 30 cottages. Each is spacious with a high ceiling and has been designed to blend into the area using local materials in the construction and interior furnishings. Each cottage is split into two guest bedrooms, each with two queen-size beds, en suite facilities, and a private veranda.
The lodge has a reception, lobby, bar, and dining room. The public areas are airy and spacious and have a natural feel with local materials and artifacts, carved furnishings, and rich earth colors typical of the Samburu area. There are lovely views of the surrounding landscape and adjacent waterhole.
The dining area serves a buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner – with an international-style menu and a good choice of dishes. Lunches can also be taken as a picnic lunch if out on game drives.
Guests enjoy gathering at the bar of an evening to share stories of the day’s sightings, whilst looking out over the floodlit waterhole which attracts a wide range of animals.
The swimming pool is ideal for cooling off during the hot afternoons between the morning and evening game drives and activities and other services include a gift shop, an evening turndown service, laundry service, and babysitting service.
Game drives are taken within the Samburu National Reserve with qualified driver guides. Guests also have the opportunity to take guided nature walks, go bird watching and learn a little of the local Samburu way of life with a cultural talk or a visit to the local village.
