Basecamp Tanzania booked us into this lodge in September 2013, and I have to say, it was the highlight of all our accommodation. We had a magnificent stay in this place, our first night in Tanzania. In fact, it was so extraordinary, my mum and I looked at each other and said, "I hope this isn't the pinnacle of our vacation," but it turned out that was very nearly true. We were both newly drunk on the African air at the time, but when I think back to my holiday, sleeping in these comfortable tents with the side-flap wide open to a starry night, listening to lions whuffing in the distance, it was fulfilling beyond description. A nice pile of equine manure squarely in front of the tent flap told us in the morning that a zebra had also enjoyed the spot. LOVED this place, and Tarangire Park.
- 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
