While we enjoyed our stay at the Tarangire Sopa Lodge, we felt disconnected from the wilderness that we had come to experience. Surprisingly, the food in the beautiful restaurant was mediocre at best, especially compared to the fare we enjoyed at the tent camps we stayed at. The rooms were nicely appointed and equipped with mosquito nets. The service staff...

Our room here was very dark and narrow. It was hard to move around. There was no air conditioning so it was very hot and uncomfortable. The ceiling fan was not of much help because there is no electricity during the daytime hours. We finally got a large floor fan to use at night. It is the only reason we...

The first two nights of oure big safari we spend in Sopa Lodge, Tarangire National Park. Fantastic rooms, very good and serviceminded staff. Good food, breakfast, lunch at the pool and very nice dinner. The staff in the resturant was very good. A place where we all want to go again.

A great hotel/lodge situated at the southern edge of Tarangire National Park in an idyllic position overlooking vast plains and the mountains in the distance. Lovely swimming pool. The rooms are well proportioned with no air conditioning and television. No wifi in the rooms and no telephones. Staff are friendly

A really special first night at the start of a 7 day safari in Tanzania - I will never forget it. The rooms were lovely and spacious, the food was good (except breakfast which was bland) and the staff were friendly. While sitting on the decking outside the bar after a good first day of safari we were able to...

The room was excellent and the food was great. The safari was more elephants and giraffes and we saw some beautiful things. It was fairly quiet when we were there but the hotel and the food was brilliant.

We stayed here on our last night of safari. The lodge was beautiful and very much in the centre of the park so the minute you leave the gates your safari begins. The rooms were great and we saw gazelle from our balcony when we came back from the restaurant. Tarengire is full of elephants and as we returned from...

Stayed here one night as a part of our safari. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, a 5 star rating. Rooms were good, 4 star. Beds were very comfortable, room was clean, had all the essentials including a hairdryer. Food was fresh and abundant but I thought the cooking lacked something. Maybe it was that my...

Wildlife roams all around the lodge. I especially enjoyed wildlife viewing from our balcony. Our room was neat and clean. The food was good and there was a nice variety. The monkeys on the roof were quite entertaining.
