SAMBURU SOPA LODGE

Located inside the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya, Samburu Sopa Lodge is built atop high ground allowing panoramic 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. 15 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 animal’s free movement to the water.

Our guest cottages follow the exterior design of centuries-old, traditional Samburu housing, but the similarity stops there. Instead, our structures have much higher ceilings; far larger windows; much more floor space; and en-suite bathrooms.

The dining room is on a slightly higher level than the lounge, and it shares the totally open-air atmosphere to allow you views over both the waterhole and the panoramic landscapes beyond. While artistically positioned wall niches house various forms of natural decorations, and the furniture follows traditional designs, the curvaceous buffet tables and live cooking areas offer a wide selection of delicious fusions of different culinary disciplines coupled with garden fresh fruits and vegetables.

The swimming pool is a pleasure in this arid, semi-desert region with its dry heat and low humidity. Tiled with various shades of blue mosaic tiles, and surrounded by a local flat stone sunbathing area, our large free form pool, with its adjoining children’s pool, outdoor shower, and sunken bar as well as views over the waterhole, provides you with the perfect solution when you want to be outdoors but keep cool at the same time.
