Set on 200 acres of private land on the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Amboseli Sopa Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the park and get some great pictures of this incredible mountain. The lodge is close to where Ernest Hemingway lived whilst writing his famous novel, The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Each of the 47 rooms has its own private veranda, en suite facilities with walk-in shower, lavatory, wash basin and shaving socket. Meals are a cosmopolitan combination of European, African and Asian dishes, all made with fresh produce and served from a colorful buffet. There are also several bars, a great pool, TV lounge and many other small niceties that make this a superb location.
