Kenya is a prime safari destination thanks to its rich wildlife culture and an amazing coastline along the Indian Ocean. Due to these factors investors have invested heavily in the hospitality industry. On every destination, you will find a host of facilities ranging from budget camps to luxurious high-end lodges. In today’s article, I will highlight a few facilities that we like booking our clients. In every location, I will single out a facility that has been rated highly by our visitors and other travelers.

Sopa Lodge Mara
Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their centre.
