I first visited Tarangire in about 1972 and the difference now is remarkable. We stayed there 3 days in mid-October 2011. Annette and her staff could not have been more helpful, my wife has dietary special requirements and the kitchen staff were wonderful, our tent was very comfortable and the variety of game that walked passed it during the day and night was great. Elephant, Dik Dik, Warthog, & Baboons. As for the game veiwing it was really the best for elephants we had during our month in Tanzania, the country was very dry so some of the migratary animals were a bit sparce as they were scattering to search for grass else where, having said this we saw almost everything. When our 3 days were finished I was sad to leave such a well managed an happy place. The resort is also a great supporter of education in the Arusha region, the happiness of the place was infectious. Don't miss this resort in your Tanzania itinery!! "mahali pazuri kweli"

- 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 patio, 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, which make 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"! "Karibuni" or Welcome! ... more less
