One of the best wildlife lodges anywhere
We have stayed in a lot of lodges across India, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania. I have no doubt that Sopa Ngorongoro is the best lodge we have stayed at. The location is fantastic, on the ridge of the Ngorongoro crater, with excellent views. One can while away time sitting in the lobby or the pool area just gazing at the views. The rooms are massive with a separate box room and huge bathrooms. All rooms have french windows with panoramic views. The food at the restaurant is top class, as is the service. Dinner is typically a sit down 5 course meal with entertainment by the staff. Breakfast starts early, so that you can proceed for your safari quickly. The lodge packs lunch, so you do not have to drive back. The wifi is quite strong in the lobby. The hotel oozes class and luxury in it’s construction and decor, it feels like something out of an Alan Quatermain story !! I would highly recommend the place to anyone who is interested in exploring African wildlife
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.
