On the eastern side of the Tarangire River opposite Tarangire Hill stands the Tarangire Sopa Lodge. The Lodge is located in the Tarangire National Park and is one of Tanzania's most easily accessible conservation areas. The lodge is about an hour's pleasant drive through an area rich in wildlife.
The Tarangire Sopa Lodge, built as a 'low profile' structure, nestles into a wooded hillside valley overlooking Tarangire Hill. Tarangire Sopa Lodge is the only luxury 'hotel-like' lodge in Tarangire.
The Lodge offers spacious rooms with good views over the bush; a pleasant lounge and restaurant, and a unique swimming pool located at the edge of a rocky gorge.
