About
Description
The main area is situated right under a big baobab tree, a common sight in these parts of Tanzania. The dining area, lounge and deck all feature a chic, contemporary African design with a traditional More thatched roof. This main area is lifted on stilts allowing a wide view of the grasslands of the Tarangire right in front of the camp. Each of the twelve canvas pavilions is shaded by tall acacia trees. They are exquisitely furnished but still close enough to nature to permit an exciting night under canvas. The tents feature a spacious open plan arrangement with comfortable king or twin beds, campaign chairs and plush sofas and boasts an ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor shower for that extra bit of luxury. Sip cocktails or enjoy scrumptious dinners on your own private veranda and watch the waterhole which regularly draws lions, leopards and resident bull elephants. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in guests' tents. Less
