Samburu Sopa lodge is a charming lodge located nearly 10kms inside the game reserve and has the right ambience to make you feel you feel totally in the wild. A walk around the area is a real birding thrill! And if you should think of a walk alone late at night

"Lions, Elephants" chipped in the guard and waved his baton at the imaginary elephants & Lions. How I would have loved to have this unexpected sighting!
