Mara Sopa Lodge
Mara Sopa Lodge is located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, is one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. A reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature.
The walls and their murals are painted with a pleasant fusion of earthen colors to create an extremely warm ambience, and the room has a well appointed bar set to one side of it.
Two doors access the sheltered but outdoor veranda with its views over the swimming pool, the gardens, and the game reserve beyond, and this is linked to the outdoor dining room patio by a bridge.
It is also here that we provide complimentary afternoon tea or coffee together with sandwiches and cakes before your last game drive of the day.
All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their center.

The lodge has fifty guest cottages divided into two wings to either side of the main public areas. Each of these house two spacious guest rooms with queen and king size beds; mosquito nets; electronic safes; dressing tables; en-suite bathrooms and sheltered verandas that all have views over the gardens and the game reserve beyond.
Six of the cottages each contain two suites with larger bedrooms and bathrooms, and both indoor and outdoor seating areas.
The flying time from Nairobi to the nearest airstrip is about an hour, and from there it is a 30 minute game drive to the lodge.
