If you’re looking for a “tent with a view” this could be the place for you. It’s a tented camp perched on an escarpment with fantastic views. The tents are strung out along the bluff, and at the heart of the complex is an open-air dining room and bar area, with a terrace overlooking the park below. The Tarangire River winds through the landscape, attracting numerous animals to its banks, all of which can be easily spotted from your vantage point.
By the way, staying here doesn’t mean roughing it – these “tents” are fixed, and are more like a room with canvas walls than real tents. They have a solid base, a thatched roof, screened windows and an en-suite stone-walled bathroom. Since our visit the camp has added some bungalows to provide alternative accommodation more suited to family groups, and has apparently refurbished the tents to make them even more comfortable.
The camp has a small swimming pool surrounded by a paved area with sun-loungers and chairs – a great place to cool off and unwind after an early morning game drive. All meals are included in your stay, and we found the food simple but tasty. Our evenings were spent watching darkness descend over the park over a cold beer, chatting to other visitors and Reginald, our guide, about animals seen, and then returning to our tent under the baobab tree to fall asleep surrounded by (thankfully) distant animal calls.
Do enlarge my 4th photo to see the elephants down by the river :-)
We spent one night here. It's in the middle of the park. The building from outside is quite ugly but it has a great view and much-much nicer inside.
Great restaurant with a really gourmet kitchen and a great bar. Extremely friendly staff.
Tarangire Sopa Lodge:
Located somewhere in the middle of the Park.
A very luxurious Lodge with a Pool, big and clean rooms, a superb restaurant ...
At the morning there are buffalos grazing in front of your bungalow-room. The pool is only open at day, because there are lions there at night and theres a path where a lot of baboons are walking through to the waterhole.
