We stayed here one night as part of a 14 night tour of Kenya. It may not be as exclusive as some but then it is not pricey and seems to absorb the larger number of guests comfortably. The room was huge, clean and comfortable, The swimming pool is also clean and well maintained. The staff were incredibly friendly and...

This was the first out of 4 lodges we stayed at during our Kenyan safari. We have never been on safari before and we unsure what to expect but were totally blown away by this place. Our room was HUGE with a sort of open ceiling that are covered in mesh so it gives u a feeling of being outdoors...

We stayed 2 nights in early April which was low season by then. Only 11 guests were there so the staff ratio to guest was high. The staff were attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the pool very much one hot midday. Still, the pool needs some attention as the tiles are stained. They do clean it, just needs some refreshing....

Unfortunately, we only stayed one night in this lodge as our flight to Nairobi was cancelled, and we had to miss a day of safari. The lodge was situated in the reserve and had the African feel to it. Love the thatch roof. The room & bathroom was clean and we had a nice little veranda, where we sat and...

We stayed here two nights during our seven day Kenyan Safari. The dining room has an amazing feel, both view and design. Loved the expansive thatched roof. The thatched roof continued into all the guest rooms. Our room was spacious and comfortable, although the lack of nets was a negative-- I was kept up all night with buzzing in my...

We recently stayed 2 nights at Samburu. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable. Like several people mentioned, there are no ceiling fans and electricity is shot several hours during the day and night. This was not a big issue, as during part of the morning and later in the afternoon, we were out on game drive and later at night...

We loved our stay at Samburu Sopa Lodge and felt it was excellent value for money compared with some of the Lodges we stayed. The rooms are large, comfortable & clean with ventilation just below the thatched roofs the worked really well at keeping the room cool although our first night we did share the room with a bat that...

We stayed at Samburu Sopa at the start of our safari and it was a great introduction to the safari experience. The rooms were large and comfortable and a reasonable sized bathroom. The rooms were not luxurious they were clean and naturally ventilated which was a surreal experience. Like with some lodges, electricity is limited to certain hours in the...
