Serengeti Sopa Lodge

The Serengeti Sopa Lodge is a good value lodge nestled in the acacia woodland on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the plains of the south-western Serengeti National Park. A large amount of game can be seen in close proximity to the lodge, thanks to the year-round water and surrounding acacia woodland. Whilst the decor could be considered rather gaudy and not particularly stylish, it is a clean and friendly hotel with an excellent position and brilliant views.
