Hell’s Gate National Park: Where to stay

  • Lake Naivasha Country Club, Rift Valley Golf Club, Lake Naivasha Sopa
    • Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort

      Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort is set in acres of grassland dotted with Acacia bushes and trees. The resort is not only home to our resident giraffe, waterbuck and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on our expansive lawns. Sopa has a conscientious tradition for care for the environment; all the buildings on the property are carefully positioned because they did not have to fell any of the many trees there. This has resulted to radically innovative and artistic design for the main public area building which now snakes its way between the trees with long and graceful curves.
