GUIDE ON AMBOSELI SOPA LODGE IN KENYA
Set at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro is Amboseli Sopa Lodge, a modest 83-room accommodation for the budget-conscious traveler in Amboseli National Park. The breathtaking landscape of this part of southern Kenya has long inspired artists and writers alike, and your dream safari vacation in Africa lets you see first-hand Coke’s hartebeests, Grant’s gazelles, impalas, zebras, wildebeests, buffalos and an abundance of other herbivores on the same vast savannah plains. The prey animals attract lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and other stalking predators, and you may have a chance to see one of these powerful hunters capture a mind-blowing meal (read more on when is the best time to go to Amboseli on an East Africa safari). The most well-known residents of the park, though, are the elephants, and your most treasured memory will be the moment that you photographed an older bull standing his ground against a younger male with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background. For the best photographs of the mountain, you should note that the clouds typically clear in the early morning and late afternoon, and on some mornings, there may be fresh snow on the peak. The lodge gardens are quite lovely, and the frangipanis, cacti, acacia thorn trees and other native flora attract some of the 425 bird species of Amboseli, as well as mongoose, monkey, genet and other smaller mammals. The pool is a pleasant place for families with children to spend quality time, after a day of wilderness touring in Amboseli with AfricanMecca.
Spacious cottages are interspersed throughout this large property, so your guest room may be a bit of a distance from the restaurant and other common areas. Amboseli Sopa room options for your awe-inspiring bush holiday in Kenya are either a twin room with queen beds or double room with king beds, as well as wheelchair accessible and interconnecting rooms, and additional beds are available if needed. The Honeymoon Suite is the comfortable getaway for a value romantic trip in Kenya, and the two-bedroom Presidential Suite features a separate sitting area and kitchenette. A palatable breakfast buffet prepares you for a morning wildlife viewing drive or you can opt to have one on your return. As you enter the park, you may feel incredulous and excited on what to expect, and your AfricanMecca guide is versed in the habitats of the park and locates vantage points where the animals are most likely to congregate, graze or hunt. Upon returning to the lodge after your morning game drive, you can relax or journal about your safari activity while awaiting your lunch. Choose dishes from the agreeable buffet lunch, and then take a rejuvenating nap before your second game drive or guided nature walk on the conservancy. During your afternoon game drive, watch for gathering herds of Thomson’s gazelle to observe the youngsters engaging in the playful antics of “stotting and pronking,” the delightful behavior of bouncing along the terrain on stiff legs. As the evening sets in, you return to the camp for a buffet dinner before retiring for the night. In addition to nature walks and game drives, you may also wish to engage with local communities at the handicraft market, visit local Maasai villages and be an audience at traditional dance performances.

Jambo Altaf, Many thanks for a brilliant holiday. Your choice of tented accommodation at the two Tsavos and Amboseli was superb, we didn't have a favourite. We would recommend AfricanMecca to anyone.
