Located inside the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya, Samburu Sopa lodge is built atop high ground allowing panaromic views of the vastness of Samburu shrub land and the hills beyond.
The lodge is built to reflect the architectural heritage of the local communities whose sons and daughters make up the majority of the work force at the lodge.30 cottages, each with two bedrooms are built in an arch formation on either side of the public areas to surround the waterhole but leaving a wide gap to allow the animals free movement to the water.
Samburu Sopa Lodge has 30 cottages. Each is spacious with a high ceiling and has been designed to blend in to the area using local materials in the construction and interior furnishings. Each cottage is split into two guest bedrooms, each with two queen size beds, en suite facilities (shower and wc) and a private veranda.
Samburu Sopa Lodge has a reception, lobby, bar and dining room. The public areas are airy and spacious and have a natural feel with local materials and artefacts, carved furnishings and rich earth colours typical of the Samburu area.
The dining area serves a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner – with an international-style menu and a good choice of dishes. Lunches can also be taken as a picnic lunch if out on game drives.
The swimming pool is ideal for cooling off during the hot afternoons between the morning and evening game drives and activities and other services include a gift shop, an evening turn down service, laundry service and babysitting service.
