Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Staying at the Tarangire Tree Tops was a superb experience.  Not because of the food, which was top quality; nor the bats that my 5 year old thought were really amazing; nor even the two nights of sleeping in a deluxe tree house.   All of those things, plus the elephant and water bucks drinking out of a very nearby pond, were wonderful.  

But it was the staff who truly made the entire experience superb.  They were attentive without being overbearing, and professional without being overly formal.   They gave a special touch to everything (loved dinner under the stars and the marshmallow roasting!).   It may very well have been the best place I've ever stayed!

Stayed: June 2014

Arrival at Tarangire Treetops was an adventure. The road through Tarangire National Park was a track, if that, but the scenery and animals were great. Good thing the guide knew the way as we toured the park. We were relieved to arrive at the lodge to be met by friendly and attentive staff, drink in hand. A gourmet dinner outdoors beside the fire and under the stars was an African Safari experience. The treetop (actually in the tree not at the top) was comfortable and secure. Worth the ride!

Room Tip: Treetop rooms give exposure to animals in the dawn

From the moment of our arrival to our much too quick departure, our every need was attended to with outstanding detail. From Johan and Lori, Nicholas and the entire staff, we were treated like royalty. The accommodations were very comfortable with our open air room during the day and zipped up coziness at night. While sipping our morning beverages from our rocking chairs on our balcony we witnessed some of the most peaceful beautiful vistas. In the evening we could watch storms pass from a distance.
The food was outstanding and our safari day trips were expertly guided by Alex. Hoping that the opportunity arises to return someday!

We were amazed when our guide found got us to the lodge. There are no marked roads or signs. And suddenly, we were there. The service was amazing. The staff was very welcoming. Martina immediately attended to our needs and remembered everything that we liked to make our stay memorable. The accommodations were wonderful. And it was a treat to wake to the sound of lions nearby. I highly recommend Treetops if you are traveling to Tarangire.

This was the first stop on our safari which included three Ellewana Collection Lodges. Treetops is located smack in the middle of Maasai territory. So as you're driving the the lodge you are passing through Maasai grazing land. But don't take a picture! In order to do that you must pay the person that you want to take a picture of. But Treetops does employ Maasai to work as security and, therefore, while at the lodge, you can snap away. One aspect of the entertainment is that the Maasai do come and perform after a great bar-b-q. As for the rooms and the bath rooms, they are spacious. We had a great view of the rolling savanna. Our room was at the end of the line of accommodations. You need to have security walk you to your room because the camp is "open" meaning any animal can walk around. We had two teenage Maasai walk us back. I asked them what they would do if we encountered a lion. The typical answer is "don't run". Their answer? One pulled out his walkie talkie and said "I'd call for help."
The rooms are located in the tops of baobab trees with limbs of the trees coming through the top of the room. The staircase to the room is very narrow and circular. For the physically challenged, this needs to be taken into consideration. It was a wonderful place to start our extraordinary safari.

We had the privilege of staying at this wonderful hotel for our honeymoon in nov 2013. The staff went above and beyond to assure that our stay was wonderful. We were greeted with a welcome drink and taken to our treetop room where we were welcomed with a beautiful Masai honeymoon tradition. Our room was absolutely magical. The sunset was unlike no other I've experienced. The room is situated in the bush and elephants were right outside our balcony. The food was top notch and the overall dining experience so special. We stayed up at the lodge and had cocktails with the general manager Johan who was fantastic. He also went above and beyond to make sure our stay was superb! We were only at the resort for one evening but I only wish we had more time there. I would highly recommend this wonderful place!!
