Samburu Sopa Lodge
The Lodge is built on top of raised ground allowing panoramic views of the distant Samburu Hills to one side and El Ndonyo Keri – the Samburu name for Mount Kenya – on the other.
Thirty cottages, forming a buffalo-horn pattern, converge at the public facilities area allowing the resident wildlife to access the lodge’s waterhole at its open end.
The architecture blends in with the area, similar to the style of the local Samburu housing. Each cottage has two tastefully appointed bedrooms, each with two queen-size beds, shower and private verandah. Local materials have been used in the construction, furnishings and interior decorations. High ceilings and space ensure that the rooms are airy and comfortable. Two rooms next to the reception and public areas are designed for the physically challenged.
