My wife and I were both surprised with the quality of this Lodge as well as the wildlife we saw. Lions, cheetah, elephants and giraffes to name a few. Lodge is very well laid out and food is absolutely fantastic.

Pros
Amazing amazing food (set menu)
Great safari
Service very good

Cons
Rooms shaped kinda wierd
Bugs in the room
Picnic lunch was just so so

No bungalows like many other places, though an intimate touch

Very good food, very nice rooms and very friendly staff

At dinner you will enjoy the hotel staff singing for you traditional songs for about 10 minutes

In the early morning hours elephants are walking right under your balcony

We stayed at Tarangire Sopa on the second night of our ten day trip to Tanzania.
Check-in was smooth but as we were led to our rooms the sense we got was that the lodge had seen better days. Don't know when such clunky concrete designs were in fashion but it certainly has no place in 2014.
The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable but not the best we slept in on our trip. The toiletries were really average. The biggest problem was lighting - with the exception of the dining room the lighting everywhere else was completely inadequate. Reading in bed was impossible even with all the lights on.
The food was tasty and plentiful and the service was good with Robert, our server, being attentive to all our needs.
The lodge is located in a beautiful setting and the view from the dining room is spectacular.
While this was a comfortable place to begin our safari we honestly expected better and this lodge needs a makeover if it doesn't want to be left behind by the newer camps and lodges.

The lodge is located in a stunning location but like the other sopa lodge we stayed in this one too was tired and dated.

The rooms were very dark, even with all lights on it was difficult to see. My friend stepped on a scorpion inside her room. Luckily she had her shoes on!

The food was okay and the service was good.

The location however is great with lots of rock hyrax, agamas and hornbills around the lodge. The was the most charming part of my stay here.

We spent an overnight here on 2days safari in Tarangire and it was real nice. The lodge was luxurious with nice swimming pool, the room was large, clean and comfortable. The staffs were friendly and food was good. I wish we could have spent more nights here with less gamedrive
