“Lake Burunge Tent Adventure”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We stayed in Lake Burunge tented camp for two nights on our trip with Overseas Adventure Travel ((OAT). The camp, staff and the area were terrific. It was amazing how they whipped up some really good meals in the middle of nowhere! The views from the main dining room lodge and from the deck of our raised tent were amazing. It was very tranquil and peaceful. A great place to unwind with a drink after a day in the hot Tarangire National Park. Would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: If you arrive here as part of a tour group they will assign you a tent. They all have pretty good v...

We were here for two nights and enjoyed the peacefulness of the lake, our cabin had a wonderful front porch to relax and think about all the interesting and beautiful animals we had seen on the game drive. The beds were comfortable and the food was good. Dining under the moon was fun. The best part was the guards singing the "jambo" song to us as they walked us to our cabins at night.

Our only complaint was the bartender couldn't understand what we wanted to drink - a dewa which is an Africian drink. I wanted it with vodka instead of gin. Shouldn't have been that hard.

Room Tip: The cabins on the right side have a nice view...the others face those cabins. We were glad we had o...

After a day of driving to Tarangire National Park and viewing animals, we arrived for two and nights days at our tented camp. Located in the midst of the wilderness, our camp featured solar-heated showers, electricity and very comfortable walk-in safari tents under thatched roofs. The main lodge for eating and gathering featured a full stocked bar and dining on the deck over looking Lake Burunge. It was blissful. At night the sounds of the animals could be heard throughout our camp. A wonderful experience.

We stayed here two nights while we visited Tarangire. It was the first tented camp of our itinerary, and we were not disappointed. The open lounge area was very comfortable, and the evening meals on the deck overlooking the lake were magical! The food was very good and I appreciated the options for a vegetarian. The birds that surround the lake and the camp were so beautiful! Would definitely return!!

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent Safari to the Serengeti in Tanzania. The camp is located on the shore of Lake Burunge and affords very nice views from the individual permanent tent lodges. Hot water was always available via solar heaters. However, battery charging had to be done at the bar where many power strips were available. Very good selection of food and drink. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We spent two nights at this lovely camp which boasted large rooms on raised platforms. Our small porch faced the lake. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive. We especially enjoyed the massages - needed after the dusty rides back and forth to Tarangire National Park. Charging stations were available at the bar but there is no Internet access.

Stayed for two nights as part of a safari tour with OAT. The tents were a good size with a wonderful view of Lake Burunge from the deck of the tent.. The service was friendly, but not obsequious. The view of the lake from the dining room was also an added feature. There were lots of small animals and birds to observe. The food was ok, but not exceptional.
