|Samburu Sopa Lodge|
The lodge is built atop raised ground allowing panoramic views of distant Samburu hills to one side and El Ndonyo Keri (Samburu name for Mt. Kenya) on the other.
The lodge is the only one with a waterhole in Samburu which will allow animal viewing from bedroom verandahs especially during dry seasons.
Thirty cottages forming buffalo horn pattern converge at the public facilities area, leaving the open end to free movement of the wildlife to access the waterhole. The architecture blends in with the area, to keep up with the style of the housing by the local Samburu people. Each cottage has two tastefully appointed bedrooms, each with two queen size beds, shower and private verandah. Local material has been used in the construction, furnishings and interior decoration. High ceilings and space ensure that the rooms are airy and comfortable. The public areas are airy and spacious and over look the water hole where wild life comes in abundance to quench their thirst.
There is a swimming pool to cool one in the warm Samburu weather, and a pool deck with loungers, much needed for relaxation after a long dusty safari.
Samburu Sopa offers guests guided nature walks, an in house cultural centre and nightly wildlife feeding. There is also an option for groups to enjoy a private lunch at the shaded out-door barbeque or star lit dinners beside the swimming pool.
