We spent a wonderful 24 hours in Tarangire National Park and our overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge was a major factor in making the visit so good. Coming in from a long day on the road, the lodge felt fresh, cool and welcoming with helpful, capable staff greeting us and taking care of our needs. Even after a day of great scenery along the way, the incredible view from the deck still stopped us in our tracks, topping everything we'd already seen. It would be enough to just sit on the deck and soak up the beauty, which makes this lodge a great choice as anyone who chooses to NOT game drive can still enjoy the huge panorama before them, should they stay in while the others go out. Our group had the best of both worlds with excellent game drives for some, as well as restful lounging for those who were road-weary. The tents were pleasant and we all slept soundly, delighted by elephant and lion noises as we drifted off. The food was good and the staff folks were attentive and professional. We were pleased to notice re-fillable water bottles providing clean drinking water in the tents, as well as re-fillable shampoo and shower gel bottles in the showers. Kudos to the managers for reducing plastic bottle waste. While no one in our party took advantage of the massage options, we did walk out to the massage banda and can only imagine that experiencing a relaxing massage in that setting would be wonderful. Overall, we were refreshed and well pleased by our time at TSL. It was an excellent culmination to a good trip. Thank you!
- 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
