Our family of 4, traveling with a guide and organized by a small tour company, spent 2 wonderful weeks in Africa. We stayed in many lovely places but Tarangire Safari Lodge, which was our last stop, was beyond our expectations in many ways! The Lodge itself is absolutely lovely, open, spacious and welcoming. The people we met were friendly, helpful and met our every need. One of our sons was ill and the management went out of their way to make him comfortable! Wonderful "happy hour" on the deck watching the sun set over the savanna, delicious food, absolutely gorgeous views down to the river, great tents.... what is not to love. If we could go back to Africa from California today, just for one night.... this is where we would go - hands down!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built on top of a high bluff with a breathtaking panorama, our lodge is superbly located in Tarangire National Park, providing one of the best views in Africa. Carving out the landscape below the lodge is the Tarangire River, a favourite watering place, which attracts impressive numbers and a variety of game. The scene unfolds before you while lounging on the outdoor terrace, allowing you to appreciate Tarangire's diverse wildlife. At the heart of the lodge are the impressively high thatched roofs of the lounge and dining room. The open-sided design allows an uninterrupted view of the landscape and wildlife below, and captures the cooling breeze while you dine on our delicious home cooked safari cuisine. The lounge area has oversized armchairs made from old dhow boats ~ a perfect place to relax. Those wanting something a bit more active can take a dip in the pool, a bird walk around the lodge grounds or hunt for souvenirs in the Baobab boutique. Our twin tents combine the authentic safari atmosphere of 'nights under canvas', with more modern comforts of electric light and en suite bathrooms with solar hot water. We also have bungalows that provide the space and convenience of solid walls yet blend into their surroundings by using local stone and echoing the traditional round Maasai huts. Tarangire Safari Lodge offers morning & evening bush walks along the river, Night Drives and Game Drives and don't miss a massage with a view at "Patulivu"! Welcome! ... more less
