Overview

On the slopes of the Kilimanjaro Mountain nestles the exquisite Amboseli Sopa Lodge, within 200 acres of Maasai wooded area. Situated just 17km from Amboseli National Park and about 250km from Kenya’s capital Nairobi, this stunning lodge is the perfect rendezvous for discerning travellers seeking the tranquillity of the bush with excellent game viewing to boot. 

It is no wonder that the sublime setting was such an inspiration to Ernest Hemingway in the 1930s, whose notable stories ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’ and ‘The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber’ became successful feature films in the 1940s. Book your Kenya honeymoon package at Amboseli Sopa Lodge and revel in the enchantment of a dreamy bush existence.

It’s a real miracle to see the magical Amboseli National Park ecosystem spreading over such a vast expanse of blue sky and golden grasslands towards the Tanzania border. This is broken by cool forests and riverine vegetation with lake systems and huge old trees. Amboseli is quite the best game reserve to view elephants up close, lions and, of course, the amazing spectacles of the Maasai tribal people in their traditional red robes and beads. Stay out a full day in the park and enjoy a tented lunch ‘restaurant’ five minutes from the park gates. 

Amboseli Sopa Lodge accommodation features 83 well-appointed rooms, 24 of which can be converted into triple rooms and 6 that have inter-leading doors, ideal for families. The Kenya lodge embraces disabled persons, with 2 rooms dedicated to the physically challenged with easy access for wheelchairs. Stay in style in the lavishly furnished 2-bedroom Presidential Suite featuring a private dining room, attached kitchenette, spacious living room and an extensive patio.

Wander into the lobby then out to the vibey Maasai handicraft market where these traditional people sit and make curios and beads, wood carvings and more, as they have done for centuries, and now for sale as part of a sustainable tourism drive – get your t-shirts, safari clothing and books here too at the safari store made for memento shopping. 

Feeling thirsty? Stroll over the small bridge over a fishpond to the Kibo restaurant and Mawenzi bar and terrace area and enjoy designs reminiscent of the Maasai tribes and the environment all around – sip a Kenyan beer and sample some delicious traditional foods. The bar and terrace are named after the second highest peak on Kilimanjaro and grilled meat is eaten al fresco here.
