Ngorongoro Crater camps - Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge can't be described as one of the more inspiring lodges on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, although from the point of view of access to the Crater floor, this is definitely one of the best located.

It more or less has its own access road on the eastern crater rim and is well worth considering for this reason alone. Its a large lodge, but the rooms are comfortable enough and there are great views. It is one that we use rarely because of its size - you will be rubbing shoulders with an extraordinary number of package tourists - but its a well-priced option when you want to stay ont he rim itself.

Don't hold out for a gourmet experience here but Sopa lodge will suit you fine if quick and easy access to the Crater is what's important to you - and you are prepared for the contrast between this and the rest of your safari.

With 96 comfortable rooms all with ensuite bathrooms (with baths not just showers) and central heating for the really cold months, there is a vast central dining area and a bar where the static from the velour upholstery virtually makes your hair stand on end. Strange as it may seem it really is worth serious consideration, just as long as you go there with your eyes wide open - or not if you're very sensitive about interior design.
