Let me start by saying, I'm honestly shocked to see the bad reviews. I have traveled to Tanzania on many occasions (at least 8) and out of all the camps I have been to (from a range of high-end luxury to tented camps), Tarangire Safari...More

We, 4 people from Hong Kong, lived in here for 2 days in 2 separate rooms (tents). We were stunned by the view which when you step out from the tent the endless plain of Tarangire is just under your feet. Surrounding with Baobab trees...More

Absolutely stunning place! Awesome view! Loved seeing a cheetah just below and a family of lions walking across the Tarangire River at daybreak! Not to mention hearing the lions growling at night from our tent and seeing dik dik, waterbuck and impala on my walk...More

Built on top of a high bluff with a breathtaking panorama, our lodge is superbly located in Tarangire National Park, providing one of the best views in Africa. Carving out the landscape below the lodge is ...More the Tarangire River, a favourite watering place, which attracts impressive numbers and a variety of game. The scene unfolds before you while lounging on the outdoor terrace, allowing you to appreciate Tarangire's diverse wildlife. At the heart of the lodge are the impressively high thatched roofs of the lounge and dining room. The open-sided design allows an uninterrupted view of the landscape and wildlife below, and captures the cooling breeze while you dine on our delicious home cooked safari cuisine. The lounge area has oversized armchairs made from old dhow boats ~ a perfect place to relax. Those wanting something a bit more active can take a dip in the pool, a bird walk around the lodge grounds or hunt for souvenirs in the Baobab boutique. Our twin tents combine the authentic safari atmosphere of 'nights under canvas', with more modern comforts of electric light and en suite bathrooms with solar hot water. We also have bungalows that provide the space and convenience of solid walls yet blend into their surroundings by using local stone and echoing the traditional round Maasai huts. Tarangire Safari Lodge offers morning & evening bush walks along the river, Night Drives and Game Drives and don't miss a massage with a view at "Patulivu"! Welcome! Less
