This was our favorite lodge of the trip. Really nice tents (concrete base, permanent structures, with nice furnishings but nothing overboard), really tasty food, amazing view, and friendly staff that communicated well and were not too pushy. The food was also healthier and seemed fresher than other lodges. There was even a pool, though I didn't swim for long because the tsetse flies were on me immediately.
The owner was very welcoming and was good at reading how much information and interaction we needed/wanted. We loved that the tents felt out in the open (we actually had monkeys in our bathroom briefly -- watch out and keep the different rooms zipped up), and that we could look out onto a valley and see animals. Wish we could have stayed here longer.
- 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
