A last hotel stay of a two week trip. Another hotel where we really weren't there long enough to give a very thorough review, but we found the time we were there to be just fine! One thing I appreciated very, very much, was having a ceiling fan over the bed!!! It's the little things in life, but I was... More

Tarangire Sopa Lodge was good standard lodge with the all mod cons and good food but a limited choice. There is a open area pool area where we relaxed with a buffet lunch and very welcome cold drink.. The staff were very pleasant and attentive but sometimes tried a bit too hard.

Over the preceding two weeks we had been staying at various Serena Lodges and had only one night (fortunately) at this property at the end of our safari. On arrival, at lunch time, we were TOLD where we had to sit and with whom we HAD TO sit at the pool restaurant, despite the fact there was only one other... More

This lodge is right in the middle of the Tarangire National Park. It has a lovely pool area, where guests can also dine alfresco and sip a cool drink. The bar area is decorated to character and the terrace has excellent views, particularly at sunset. The rooms on the ground floor, which is where i stayed, seemed very dark. They... More

This hotel, and specifically its staff has been the highlight of all our travels of the last years. Attention to detail, excellent food and spacious family rooms are but a few of the highlights. Book a packed breakfast and enjoy it at the picnic spot in the park with an excellent few of nature. Sopa's service made us recommend it... More

Wow! We were really impressed with this hotel. Rooms were very large with a sitting room at the entry and two double beds with mosquito net around both. Everything was first class with enthusiastic and attentive staff. These hotels operate on generated power so that hot water is limited to morning and afternoons. The only down side, we agreed the...

We stayed here on day 6 of our 6 night safari booked with Bobby's Tours in Arusha. Our last night away. The rooms were very good here. Smaller than the Serengeti Sopa but nice. They were a little warm at night tbh, even with the fan running. Our room was downed (prepared for bedtime) each night. The mosquito net surrounded... More

We had a good stay at the lodge. We were there as a family and the children and I enjoyed playing in the pool. Very good for children as it is not too deep and has an interesting round shape which was good for playing all sorts of racing games, etc, and most importantly not crowded with too many guests...

Not as good as Serengeti Sopa or Ngorongoro Sopa. Food mediocre at best. However, location surrounded by animals including buffalo, elephants, warthogs, and more. This could be a plus for some travelers or a minus.

The potential of the hotel is very high. The location is very nice as it is inside the park, the staff very friendly and nice and will always be ready to help, the food is good and it is clean. But no internet in the hotel, or we had internet in the lobby but super slow compare to other lodges... More
