Built on an escarpment,overlooking the park spreading below,Tarangire safari lodge offers a unique experience. One can sit at the look out patio and watch the wildlife pass by while totally relaxing with a cool drink.Visited for the second time after nine years for these nostalgic reasons....and nothing seemed changed at first glance..However,in addition to the tented huts, some bungalow type...

I loved this place. it is built on an escarpment overlooking a river valley. You can sit on the huge patio and watch the animals in the valley below. At close to sundown, they serve appetizers and with a drink, it is a great place to sit and watch whatever animals and birds that decide to appear. The lounge area...

The eating area and front patio are gorgeous. Spectacular setting. Food is ok. The problem is there was no way to summon help from your tent once you are walked there after dinner. The tents are very, very close together, you can hear your neighbors whispering. We had the misfortune to be next to the loudest snorer we have ever...

We stayed 2 nights (full board) in tent accomendations. The tents are very close together so you will here every sneeze or cough. King size bed, very clean. The bathroom is very roomy but be careful of tripping with the hump between bathroom and bedroom. Electricity is off between 11am and 6pm. There are no outlets in the tent. Charging...

Thank you AnnW358 for your review. Happy you enjoyed your stay. And that you were 'cared for' when you needed it. We now have added another hair dryer - just in case needed. "Asante sana & Karibu tena." A. Simonson

We only stayed here one night, but wow...what a view! The patio overlooks the park and you can just sit there and watch the wildlife with a glass of wine!!! The rooms were "glamping" tents with an on-suite bathroom. I wasn't sure what to expect staying in a tent, but everything was great! A few bugs joined us, but not...

Our first night of Safari, we were at the Safari Lodge. Sleeping in the tents made us feel as though we were at one with the Wildlife and the stories we were being told and how close the animals were to us was getting us every excited. The Views are amazing as you are literally ontop of the Hill -...

Sleeping in tents felt like you were part of the wildlife, which at times you were. The first night we didn't sleep well because of the lions roaring off in the distance. There is privacy, but you can hear every little cough and comment from your neighbours. The second night we slept better as we were more comfortable with the...

Thank you Calypso88 for your review with 5 Stars. Happy you enjoyed the morning bird songs and your wildlife sightings from the terrace. Noting your comment about staff. Our regrets and hopefully not an experience for any others. 'Asante sana' and indeed, a warm welcome back again. A. Simonson

We stayed here for 2 nights. I guess lack of hot water for showers and lights out at 11 pm are ok and to be expected in this kind of set up. But we didn't like damp towels all the time and bed linen that didn't seem fresh. The location, food, ambience and service were really great. Drinks on the...

Hello RaneeB Thank you for your feedback which is mostly positive. Indeed having damp towels & lack of hot water is something to mention. And I hope you did so at Reception as we like to know anything out of order right away. "Asante sana & Karibu tena" A. Simonson

The view from the terrace down onto the riverbed area was incredible offering sightings of elephants, giraffes, etc. Our only real complaint was other guests that were really loud at night. The staff was very friendly and sang happy birthday to one of the guests at dinner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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 patio, 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, which make 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"! "Karibuni" or Welcome! ... more   less
