The drive to the hotel was amazing though the road is rather bumpy. Nonetheless, our arrival was well received and right on time for a restorative cup of coffee served at the garden. The wildlife comes out to graze from around 7pm and it's an amazing experience. The wind down was marked by a fireplace chill out right next to...

Because of the HIppos in the lake they do ask that after dark, you don't venture out on your own. The rooms, typical of Sopa Lodges and the food also the same, decent buffets. This is a larger lodge and our rooms were quite far off on the 2nd floor of a 4 roomed house, with a nice large balcony....

Stayed for two nights on a business conference and overall had enjoyed stay. It is a large facility, very peaceful with good grounds for relaxation and lay about. The rooms are decent, very large actually with good facilities. However the bathrooms need refreshing and possibly upgrade; the towels did not look very clean! The food was good with sufficient variety...

Recently stayed for 6 nights, my third visit. As before the staff were really fantastic, very friendly and nothing was too much for them. The buffet style meals offered a wide selection of foods, catering for a broad range of tastes. No heating in the rooms, but I loved my hot water bottle - very luxurious.

The first thing that strikes you about SOPA lodge is the grounds. It is lush green and so relaxing. And the animals that walk right up to the cottages - giraffes right at the balcony in the morning, hippos emerging at night. It's a lovely place to just forget the troubles of the city. Service is really good, the rooms...
