Tarangire Sopa Lodge

Tarangire Sopa Lodge is a substantial safari lodge located in north Tarangire National Park. It offers 75 clean, well-furnished rooms and hotel-style facilities, including a large pool.

Part of the Sopa chain, Tarangire Sopa Lodge is a large 75-room property, set among the baobab and acacia woodlands of northern Tarangire National Park. A substantial lodge, Sopa offers comfortable rooms and a convenient location in a region of the park that is rich in game, but it does lack some of the character offered by Tarangire’s smaller, more remote bush camps.

Tarangire Sopa Lodge’s guest areas are spacious and airy, and feature marble floors, high wooden ceilings and sliding glass doors that open out to a verandah where you can relax and enjoy the view. There is a indoor dining room and a comfortable lounge and bar area. There is also a full-size pool with sun loungers.

Tarangire Sopa is one of the more impressive Sopa lodges. Despite being very big, Tarangire Sopa Lodge offers good hotel-style facilities, clean accommodation, and friendly service—all at very modest rates. It is not a traditional safari camp, however, and those looking for a more “authentic” experience, or simply somewhere with a bit of character, should consider one of the many alternatives available in Tarangire NP.

Accommodation

Tarangire Sopa Lodge offers 70 rooms, divided into blocks with 4 rooms each (2 downstairs, 2 upstairs). These are furnished to the standard of most hotel rooms, rather than safari tents. Some will appreciate the extra comforts beyond those on offer at a similarly-priced bush camp, such as carpeted floors, glass sliding doors and private balconies. Those looking for a traditional bush camp, on the other hand, may find that Sopa Lodge lacks character.

Dining

Indoor and outdoor dining is available. Generous buffet meals are served in the dining room, with dishes to suit most diets (plenty of vegetarian options, for instance). BBQs and themed dinners are offered on some evenings.
