Tarangire Sopa Lodge


This traditional lodge lies hidden amidst Tarangire’s ancient baobab trees and grasslands.

Built to blend harmoniously with its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge has a natural design, with an earthy-brown-roofed main building and rooms tucked away in traditional circular cottages. With no fences around the lodge, you’ll hopefully be able to witness up-close wildlife viewing – elephants can regularly be seen wandering through the grounds.

Meals are taken either in the light and airy large restaurant with its high roof, on the upper outside terrace or beside the swimming pool. As well as plenty of options for where to dine, there’s also a choice of where to relax, with a vast marble floored lobby leading through to a lounge area with comfy sofas and a pool table, a coffee area for a pre-safari cup of coffee or tea and a home-baked cookie, a lounge bar and a poolside bar.

Large rooms are housed in a series of circular cottages with high conical roofs that spread outwards from the main building. You’ll either have a room on the ground floor or one on the upper floor accessed by an outdoor stone staircase. Each is traditionally furnished with neutral colours and a terracotta floor, and features two queensize beds and a lounge area.
