Samburu Sopa Lodge is situated 325 kms from Nairobi, in the middle of the park, next to the new Oryx airstrip. It is accessible from the main Isiolo – Moyale road at both Ngare Mara as well as Archers post junctions.

The lodge was designed in harmony with the architectural heritage of the local communities whose sons and daughters make up the majority of the work force at the lodge. Fifteen cottages, each with two bedrooms are built in an arch formation on either side of the public around the watering hole.

The layout leave opens to a wide entrance allowing the wildlife easy access to water. Meals are served in an open sided restaurant adjacent to the bar and swimming pool all facing the watering hole. Sunsets at Samburu Sopa are amazing to behold as the star- studded African night sets in. The only interruption to this mesmerizing experience is the occasional Lion roar, laughter of the Hyena or sweet flute melodies of Samburu Warriors calling it a day.
