Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge
is located in the Lake Nakuru
area of Southwest Kenya
At 188 square kilometres, Lake Nakuru National Park is a relatively small fenced wildlife reserve, of which around a third is taken up by the lake itself. The area is most famous for its enormous populations of flamingos which nest along the shoreline. Depending on the season, there can be hundreds of thousands, possible even millions of these birds on view. The park is also renowned for its populations of rare black rhinos, white rhinos and Rothschild giraffes. Predators including lions, leopards and cheetahs are also present and seen with reasonable regularity.
Situated just outside the western border of Lake Nakuru National Park, this very large and commercial lodge is greatly lifted by the superb views back towards the lake. Otherwise the architecture and facilities are all very much what you would expect from a lodge in this chain, with vast public areas leading out to a large swimming pool and 62 guest rooms ranged across the ridge.
Activities are largely focused on vehicle safari into the adjacent park.
The main potential downsides are largely down to the deficiencies of the area, the diminutive Lake Nakuru now being completely surrounded by heavy human populations and the park suffering from high volume and largely low quality safari traffic, much it which emanates from this lodge.
