This was our favorite lodge out of five. It was a tented camp with proper bathroom facilities, toilet and hot water, solor flashlights if necessary. Waking up to the lions roaring at night, seeing the impala drink the water outside our tent from our shower were some of the highlights. There was also elephant dung outside our tent when we woke up (seems we missed some action that night) :) It was a wonderful safari experience and not once did I feel afraid, I just enjoyed every moment. They had a hour before dinner with snacks and drinks to enjoy on their amazing terrace overlooking the Savana. We definately want to come back but for a longer time.
The service was always friendly and available. Food was just average but it didn't matter to us!
- 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
