Amboseli Sopa Lodge

This lodge is perched on a 200 acres of private land in the foothills of the snow-capped Mountain Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain) with a rustic charm all of its own.

It was this region of Kenya that inspired Ernest Hemingway’s unforgettable stories ‘’The Snows of Kilimanjaro’’ and ‘’The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber’’ (in the 1930s) which were turned into more than successful feature films in the late 1940s due to their renowned actors.

All forms of wildlife still abound in this wilderness which continues all the way to the Amboseli National Park, which is situated only 20-minutes drive away from the lodge.

Guests to the lodge will thus enjoy the abundance of wildlife in the park, more especially the large herds of free-ranging elephants.

During the cultural or community visits, guests will meet the Masai people/tribe which is perhaps the world’s most renowned African tribe known for its amazing culture.
