Tarangire Sopa Lodge

tarangire sopa lodge

After enjoying a long leisurely game drive between herds of wild animals and along miles of Africa’s seemingly endless roads, you come over a slight rise and the lodge appears almost immediately below you.

Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the Tarangire National Park - home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter.

Accommodation

While our circular guest suites with their high, conical roofs fan out to either side of the public areas, it is worth mentioning a word of caution here. Because the lodge is not fenced in any way, wild animals are at liberty to come and go as they please and transits to your room and back might be – but rarely – delayed by an elephant or two. This is the only reason our guards will insist on taking you to and fro at night.

Once inside the coolness of your room, you will be delighted at its space and airiness, and also the views from its sheltered veranda. With its mini-bar, two double beds and an extremely spacious, well appointed bathroom, you can only wish that you were staying an extra night.

    75 spacious rooms, all with a private lounge on entering with a mini bar. Each room has 2 queen size beds with a mosquito net around them.
        4 of these rooms are suitable for the physically challenged.
        4 interconnecting rooms suitable for families.

Dining Experience

On the other side of the reception lobby is our coffee shop where you can enjoy one of a wide range of Tanzanian highland brews together with one of our freshly baked pastries, while adjacent to this area a flight of steps takes you down into the dining room for a leisurely – and always simply-to-die-for – meal beneath an intricately painted mural painted onto a high gable at one end of the room. Even the floor is a work of art with its multi-coloured timbers and copper nails.

However, if you relish the great outdoors, the restaurant has a terrace running along one side of its entire length so you can enjoy your breakfast with a view over the park’s tree-studded, grassy plains.

Weather permitting, lunch is always served at the lodge’s lowest level and beside the swimming pool with its central island and bar beside a dry river bed which fills up during the rainy seasons. As for dinner, the dining room has an enormous outdoor patio where we serve dinner every other night, and this experience beneath Africa’s star filled sky is quite simply one you will never forget.

Perched at the edge of a natural bluff, Tarangire Safari Lodge is renowned for its panoramic views of the savannah and Tarangire River below, providing breathtaking scenery and game viewing right from its sweeping terrace and your doorstep.

The vast, open-air dining room provides a distinctive setting for our international home-style cuisine. Our signature buffets offer fresh fruits and vegetables, and a wide variety of flavorful dishes sure to satisfy every palate. Requests are welcome for dinner under the stars on our terrace, where you may choose from a range of local wines and enjoy dinner by candlelight. Warm, friendly staff members are ready to assist and cater to all our guests’ needs and dietary requirements.

Our Accommodation

Our Tents

The quintessential safari tents, with thatched roofs and large, mesh-screened windows, provide the perfect opportunity to connect with the sights and sounds of nature. Each tent has a comfortable verandah, ideal for bird and game viewing or reading your favorite book after a dusty safari. With a choice of twin, double, or triple accommodation, all tents are equipped with en-suite bathrooms with solar-heated showers, ample cupboard space for your gear, and a cultural touch of local textiles.

Our Bungalows

The five circular bungalows, built in a similar style to the Maasai boma, offer a more spacious option for family and triple accommodation. These airy rooms are situated near a large watering hole, creating the opportunity to watch wildlife from your shaded verandah. The bungalows are set away from the main lodge, providing privacy, and all are equipped with large en-suite bathrooms with solar-heated showers, and comfortable bedding made from local textiles.

Power

Power for the rooms is provided from 6am - 10am and 6pm - 11pm. Recharging facilities are available during this time and the "charging station" is found at our main bar. With power off at 11pm we kindly request guests to make sure that any device they might need during the night is battery powered. Please note there will be surcharge if electricity is required all night.

Our Facilities

Swimming Pool

Set among the shade of acacia trees, the inviting swimming pool provides a great location for a poolside cocktail or an afternoon dip. There is also a shallow splash pool for children to safely enjoy.

Lounge & Bar

Relax, put your feet up, and sip a refreshing drink in our bar and lounge area. Fresh Tanzanian coffee and teas are complimentary from 5:45am to get your day started before heading on safari. Join us on the terrace at 6pm for daily ‘sundowners’, complimentary savories, and the unparalleled African sunset. Free Wi-Fi is available in this area, but our location in the bush doesn’t allow for a very fast connection… so we kindly recommend browsing our breathtaking views and not the Internet.

Baobab Boutique

Whether you’re looking for a gift to take home to a loved one or a memento for yourself, The Baobab Boutique has a variety of handmade crafts by Tanzanian artisans and unique, specialty items to choose from. There are gifts for all ages, many of which support local women and craftsmen throughout Tanzania.
