"A most enjoyable stay"

2 nights Arrived 16 Sep 2015
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tarangire Sopa Lodge.
There was a courteous and warm welcome, and the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful throughout our stay. The facilities were of a very high standard, and we enjoyed the view and outlook from our upstairs room. The food was excellent and offered a wide variety of cuisine, particularly at breakfast, which was most appreciated.
The manager was most obliging and allowed me to use his computer to transfer photos to an external hard drive, which was most appreciated.
We very much enjoyed the impromptu singing and dancing performance put on by the staff one evening.
We had a little trouble accessing the wifi at times, but once we were shown the protocol, it became better.
The lodge has a really nice garden and surrounds. It also has an attractive swimming pool. We enjoyed watching the birdlife and animals, including an elephant, that utilised the gardens." See all these reviews: 16n in Tanzania

"Tarangire Sopa Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 17 Dec 2012
"The accommodation was a tired and dated. For example door mats worn out and carpets a bit past their best.. Though they seemed to have started renovating some of the rooms.

The staff were very welcoming, particularly in the restaurant where Margareth served us in a very pleasant and efficient manner. The food was very good.

There was not much to see out of the windows to the accommodation - though I guess this may be different in the dry season
When we were there the resort was very quiet." See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar

"Tarangire Sopa Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 17 Jul 2009
"The Lodge is very impressive if a bit sterile. Very clean and an excellent location in the Park.

Food disappointing and an overly attentive waiter which didn't work for us.

Tarangire was excellent for both game (we saw lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog) and birds" See all these reviews: 12n in Tanzania
