More about Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

The lodge is themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs. It is decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures.

The lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings.

But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors: it also flows through the split level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambience of both warmth and cosiness.

The furniture and arresting columns bearing engraved characters, which intersperse the reception, borrow heavily from Tanzania’s rich wildlife and tribal cultures while the potted plants are a reminder of the lodge’s verdant natural surroundings.
