Serengeti National Park

This vast 14,763 km2 wildlife conservation area in north western Tanzania first came to public notice in 1901 when a troop of German soldiers was attacked by a raiding party of Maasai warriors. The Germans subsequently built a defensive structure called Fort Ikoma in the area, and maintained it until it fell to the British army in 1917.

In 1921 the British Administration declared a 350 hectare nature reserve near a village called Seronera,  and  now the Serengeti’s administrative centre to protect lions, and this was the start of the Serengeti National Park which was eventually formed in 1951. The park came to international attention in 1957 when Bernard Grzimek, then President of the Frankfurt Zoological Society, and his son Michael, wrote a book called Serengeti Shall Not Die and, in 1959, they made a wildlife film with the same title. While the film won an Oscar at the annual American Acadamy Award presentations that same year, Michael was unfortunately killed in a plane crash while working on the documentary.

As a result of the Grzimeks’ efforts, the Serengeti is now one of the world’s best known National Parks, and with good reason. Its vast, endlessly rolling, Acacia-studded grassland savannahs, riverine forests, swamps, and hills and valleys are home to countless species of numerous wild animals – not to mention birds – as well as the 1.5 million wildebeest which annually migrate northwards – together with tens of thousands of zebras – into  Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Reserve for a month or two every year.

With our Sopa tradition of excellence, it goes without saying that our fully en suite guestrooms and suites have been designed, decorated and furnished with only your total comfort in mind.

69 standard rooms, all with 2 queen size beds, carpeted, and tastefully furnished with local fabrics and pictures. One entering the room is a lounge with a mini bar. In the front is a verandah with 2 comfortable chairs and coffee table, with glass windows facing the vast Serengeti plains which extend as far as the naked eye can see.

  • 1 of these rooms are suitable for the physically handicapped.

4 very spacious double storey suites, with a lounge area on the ground floor where one can dine, sit out on the balcony facing the Serengeti Plains.

  • Upstairs is the bedroom with a king size bed on a raised wooden platform, and on one side a bathtub facing the plains. There is an outside open shower as well.

The interior of the suites are painted with the same colours as the main building, terracotta, mustard and blue, which is incorporated in the fabrics. A verandah extends from the room facing the plains, ideal for relaxing and watching the spectacular serengeti sunset.

Unlike most other safari lodges throughout East Africa, our main building does not have a traditionally African thatched roof.  It has instead a flat roof which we often use for cocktail, sundowner and private parties.

However, when you step down from these lofty heights into the sudden coolness of the reception lobby and move on, you will find stairs and ramps which either take you down to the dining room, with its outdoor terrace and simply delicious and sumptuous meals that are to die for, or across to the conference room before descending further to the ground floor.


Airy and spacious, the walls painted with rich earth colours reflecting the tones of the surrounding area.


Furnished with large comfortable chairs made out of driftwood, huge cushions and colourful throw pillows. The low ceiling has wooden beams across and the pillars holding it are shaped like huge pots stacked together. Beautiful metallic wall lamps with soft lighting complete the overall, warm and intimate effect.


An open dining area, spacious, airy and lots of light eminating from the floor to ceiling windows. This allows a magnificent view of the plains as well, The furniture is wrought iron chairs and wooden tops, all artistically done. The walls are painted in a mud red colour with window like spaces holding artifacts found in the region. Behind the buffet area is a shimmering blue placement, like a glass mosaic, adding on to the theme.

The Bar is set in a corner with a view of the Serengeti plains, the bar area is strategically placed with an uninterrupted view, and has a terrace for seating with comfortable chairs.
