Located on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the plains of the south-western Serengeti National Park, home to many thousands of wild and rare animals, Serengeti Sopa Lodge lies within an area of out-standing natural beauty. An oasis of cool relaxation from the equatorial sun. The lodge allows its guests to experience magnificent sights and enjoy interaction with the land and animals difficult to find elsewhere, whilst at the same time enjoying the highest level of cuisine and hospitality.
Unlike most other safari lodges throughout East Africa, our main building does not have a traditionally African thatched roof. It has instead a flat roof which we often use for cocktail, sundowner and private parties.
However, when you step down from these lofty heights into the sudden coolness of the reception lobby and move on, you will find stairs and ramps which either take you down to the dining room, with its outdoor terrace and simply delicious and sumptuous meals that are to die for, or across to the conference room before descending further to the ground floor. The lobby is furnished with large comfortable chairs made out of driftwood, huge cushions and colorful throw pillows. The low ceiling has wooden beams across and the pillars holding it are shaped like huge pots stacked together. Beautiful metallic wall lamps with soft lighting complete the overall, warm and intimate effect.
An open dining area, spacious, airy and lots of light emanating from the floor to ceiling windows. This allows a magnificent view of the plains as well, The furniture is wrought iron chairs and wooden tops, all artistically done. The walls are painted in a mud red color with window like spaces holding artifacts found in the region. Behind the buffet area is a shimmering blue placement, like a glass mosaic, adding on to the theme.
The Bar is set in a corner with a view of the Serengeti plains, the bar area is strategically placed with an uninterrupted view, and has a terrace for seating with comfortable chairs.
