We spent our first night on safari at Maramboi Tented Camp. What a great introduction to safari living! One is greeted with friendly staff offering hot scented towels for cleaning the dust off, then cocktails. Asante sana! Thank you very much. We relaxed on the deck/lounge/dining/pool area to recover from the day's journey and enjoy the sunset and wildlife that meandered by. The vistas were stunning. The openness of the facilities invited conviviality and interaction among the guests who had arrived from many different countries. Dinner was served buffet style, with many options for every taste. I had the lamb stew and found it to be quite tasty. Finally we made our way to our rooms, which were very spacious, very modern, and offered extraordinary views. The shower was one of my favorites of the whole safari experience. Admittedly, it is the only place in Africa I suffered any bug bites, it is also the place where I spent the most time outside after dark. Located between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park, one has the opportunity to view the wildlife that migrates between the two protected areas. If I ever have the opportunity to return to this part of the world again, this lodge would definitely be on my list to visit again.
