Perfect location. Room is comfortable, well arranged and equipped. View on surroundings is amazing. Food and restaurant services are well adapted. Pool is fine and allows to relax after exhausting safari day.

Introduce facility to pay by credit card. Train staff to be more attentive and also to smile more! Morale seemed so low. Change your Manager - he is 1 of the big problems in Tarangire. Remember.........."customers are king". Tarangire was the worst of the 5 lodges we visited, only down to the service provided and this is something you can... More

This was our first safari and also our first time staying in a tent of this caliber. Truly "glamping". We stayed for two nights and the camp was fairly empty and private. The pool is nice but I had to clean it with the skimmer before swimming since it was filled with dead flies. Having the staff maintain the pool... More

Spent one night the this lovely camp with some friends who were visiting from India. It's a great Lil place with over 20 spacious luxury safari tents, great showers, 24 hours electricity and to my surprise 24 hrs hot water (given that their water is heated through solar power).

The more popular Tarangire Safari Lodged was booked - 8 months out - so I chose this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed! Yes, it is not in the park, but it is pretty close to the gate - not so bad if you just plan for the extra time. It is a beautiful location overlooking a... More

We spent two nights here at the start of our safari in mid-September. The camp is perfectly located for Tarangire National Park and also not too far from Lake Manyara.
