The staff is 5* all the way around, they could not be nicer. We were told to keep windows closed, as monkeys otherwise come in to steal sugar - surely enough there were 2 small ones right outside our door. There were elephants to be seen from the balcony by the bar in the sunset. Hyrax everywhere. The dinner was...

Only got to stay here 1 night....but would love to go back. The park was one of our favorites. Lions within feet of the entrance to the lodge! Another lodge with gorgeous views, good food, fun layout, tons of comfy chairs. The staff was always friendly and helpful!

The last night of our 7-day safari was spent at Sopa Lodge in Tarangire...because it was Christmas, alcoholic cocktails and sodas were free before dinner, which was a nice plus! The Lodge is really lovely - spaces are roomy (including bedrooms and bathrooms - two double beds in most rooms makes this the most spacious place we stayed in), the...

Unlike the other hotels we stayed at during our recent safari in Tanzania, this room had a separate sitting area. It also had a power bar for re-charging our cameras, lap-top, Kindles, etc. This was much appreciated as we often had to scramble to find plug-ins at our other hotels. Our room had a fan but as it was very...

The lodge is inside the Tarangire National Park. The location makes one come to rest at a very quiet and humble surroundings after a long drive at Tarangire National Park. The rooms are through stoney paths and they are in blocks of four. We preferred the higher ones to have less mosquito and tse tse flies and a good view...

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
