Hotel #5 of our 2 week trip. We did not choose this hotel, but do think it was a nice choice! Spent two nights here, and really, our biggest complaint was that having a hot shower was not a given. Having a choice of a cold shower, or none, I choose the latter. Hubby never had a warm shower, but...

It's the only lodge I've stayed in so have nothing to compare with. The lodge is comfortable and well appointed. The food is excellent. Staff are friendly. Only criticism is that the wifi is turned off promptly and without warning at about 9am right when everyone comes back from safari and wants to share their photos with family and friends....

We spent two nights in Mara Sopa Logde and it was amazing experience! The Lodge is situated inside the Masai Mara National Park and you need to defeat loooong bumpy road to get there but it’s worth it. The Logde is beautifully inbuilt in the nature and has all the amenities you may need during your stay. Among numerous advantages...

We stayed here last week during our weeklong Safari in Kenya. The property itself is nice and well maintained, but the location is not prime. It is based on the edge of the Game park and the access roads are terrible. It takes about 15 mins to get into the park and start seeing any animals. The food also lacked...

We stayed for two nights. We travelled from Nakuru, via Marok, and the last 80 km were on a dirt track through Masai villages. It felt like we were driving to the ends of the earth. Just when we thought we couldn't take any more bumps in our safari van, our driver turned into a steep driveway and there we...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our Safari, The drive there was an adventure on its own or the last 100km was. The Mara Sopa Lodge was a wonderful place, with great food, comfy beds. The bar was food and the drinks reasonably priced, I would recommend a stay here.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as the first stop on a 10 day safari with Pollmans/Hayes and Jarvis. Hotel was ok, but probably the least nice out of the ones we stayed in for the week. It is located around 15 mins from the edge of the Masai Mara national park, and it took us around 45...

We stayed 2 nights during Christmas when we had a safari with JT Safaris. The location was excellent inside the park but road was in a really poor condition so you needed a 4x4 wheel jeep to drive into the lodge. The rooms were spacious set in separate cottages 2 rooms in one cottage. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Beds...

We stayed one night a family of 10 including some little children.The location is a little distant from the main Game Reserve and takes quite a bit of time to get to it. The roads are not in the best of conditions although that's not necessarily the lodges fault.The rooms are quite spacious and the beds surprisingly large and comfortable....

The location of the hotel is excellent, although the roads were in a poor state after the rain. The service was fine, the food was average. The main problem is poor maintenance. There was only warm water for one person to shower, you needed luck to switch from the tap to the shower, and the toilet didn't flush properly.
