Located inside the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya, Samburu Sopa Lodge is one of Kenyas most famous wildlife areas, home to the rare northern 'species' of Beisia Oryx, Gerenuk and Grevy's Zebra. The reserve is placed within the ancestral lands of the Samburu, who are close relatives of the Masai. Samburu Sopa lodge is built atop high ground allowing panaromic views of the vastness of Samburu shrub land and the hills beyond.
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 for free animal movement towards the water.
Temperatures often reach 31 degrees centigrade. The short Rains come between November and December and the long rains between March and May.
