....and that was just the beginning of a fairy tale stay at the Osupuko Lodge on the outskirts of Tarangire National Park. The friendly and professional staff treated me like a princess, from the warm greeting (complete with refreshing towel and delicious juice) to the affectionate farewell after only a two night stay.
The local Masai are employed, not only to escort you to your room at night (they carry a long stick to fend off the lions), but also to perform their traditional dance to which the other women and I were invited to participate in. You have not really lived until you dance with the Masai!
The dining area overlooks the pool and beyond lies the zebra, elephants, and giraffe I had the pleasure of viewing during my stay. The food was delicious, especially the yellow lentils with coconut sauce that as a vegetarian, I really appreciated. My room was spacious and had a gorgeous view. It was a little hot, but they brought me a fan and it did cool off at night. I stayed in several other lodges and tent camps during my safari, and all were good, but the Osupuko Lodge was my favorite.More
