Beautiful hotel, good food, and wonderful location
My favorite safari hotel! Pros: beautiful location on the Ngorongoro Crater rim, beautiful reception area & bar, good food. Room was nicely equipped. Staff was friendly. Nice pool. Cons: like the other Sopa hotel I stayed at, had to pay for water in the restaurant, which is annoying.
Ngoronongoro Sopa Staff Excel at Quality Service
I highly recommend staying at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. Firstly the location is spectacular and unique. The staff are kind, considerate and focussed on providing great service. Special mention goes to Christine, Raphael, Kapanda, Pele and Martin. Each one went out of their way to ensure that the service was customised to what was needed. They do this in a friendly and genuinely engaging way that makes one feel very welcome, safe and comfortable.
Amazing view into Crater but very big
If you are looking for a lodge at the Crater rim, with a direct view into Ngorongoro Crater and still at an affordable rate, you have no choice but stay here. The location is absolutely amazing and the view from the restaurant or terrace are gorgeous. Make sure to be there in the evenings when the sun goes down, it is unforgettable. The rooms are quite spacious and all feature two queen beds. The Sopa Lodge is not too luxurious but you are not missing on any comfort here. In your room you also have a small glassed balcony with a direct crater view. Food was served as a buffet in the large dining room and together with the service was excellent. Also the breakfast offer left no wines unfulfilled.
What a great surprise.
Sitting on hand embroidered cushions, Persian rugs under our bare feet, our hands rinsed in rosewater, a cold beer in our hands. All good signs for the feast that awaits us. A cacophony of calls to prayer, cathedral bells and Hindu mixed with authentic Arabic music. Ending our journey with a high note and a taste for more. KWAHERI: good buy. We will come back soon.
We visited Ngorongoro Sopa as one of our last lodges on our safari honeymoon. The first thing that grabs you is the journey to the lodge. As you pass up the winding roads to the lodge, you are greeted by luscious scenery, wild animals, and mad drivers! But when you reach the lodge itself, it is purely amazing. You are greeted by a panoramic view of the entire Ngorongoro crater, as this lodge is situated on the inside (the Serena is on the outside so this is better!). There is a pool although you wont have time to use it, and a fantastic bar serving very cheap drinks (a beer was around 4000 shillings I think). The lodge puts up great entertainment although as we were there over Xmas a portion may be driven by the special occasion. There are wild monkeys in the lodge so take care with your valuables. Food is nice buffet style, couldnt recommend this lodge enough.
