The Serengeti Sopa Lodge is located in the Nyarboro Hills in the south west of the Serengeti National Park and is the only tourism development in this section of the Park. Year-around water and the acacia woodland in this area create an ideal environment for the wide variety of wildlife seen in the immediate vicinity of the lodge. Being situated on the slopes of the hills, the lodge offers magnificent views over the 14,763sq km (5,200sq. mile) expanse of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania's largest wildlife conservation area. With an altitude of 1,615 metres (5,300 feet) the lodge enjoys cooling breezes. Although for most of the year the temperatures are high, the rains in November and December, April and May bring a welcome relief to the dry plains. Only the lightest of clothes are recommended although a light sweater might be needed for early mornings and evenings. The atmosphere of the lodge might encourage guests to wear more formal attire in the evenings. The double size pool offers a refreshing interlude between game drives as well as wonderful views over the rolling plains of the Serengeti.
