Samburu Sopa Lodge is the only lodge in the reserve with a waterhole on site. This enhances opportunities for game viewing from the comfort of the bedroom verandah or the public areas without interruption.
The lodge is built atop high ground allowing panaromic views of the vastness of Samburu shrub land and the hills beyond. The Reserve is home to rare animals species like the gerenuk, grevy’s zebra and baisa oryx in addition to all others including the big five and birds.

The lodge is built to reflect 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 areas to surround the waterhole but leaving a wide gap to allow the animals free movement to the water.
Meals are served in an open sided restaurant adjacent to the bar and swimming pool all facing the waterhole. The sunset is a sight to behold and the star-studded African night sets in fast, the only interruption being the occasional lion roar laughter of the hyena or the sweet flute melody from Samburu Warriors.
