Reviewed 14 January 2014

Tarangire Safari Lodge remains one of my favourite places to stay. We took my mum, who was visiting us in Tanzania, to stay for 3 nights over the weekend. The safari around the park was great, and we got to see many animals (4 of the big five!), and so enjoyed listening to all the noises during the night whilst in the tents. The accommodation and service is outstanding. I love to be able to just sit in the lounge and read during the day, and look out over the amazing scenery.

Stayed here one night while on a short safari. This place was excellent! Staff was super professional, friendly and helpful. Warm welcome as we arrived included a glass of lemon grass tea and a warm cloth to refresh our selves after a day of safari. Tent was clean, had great view. En-suite bathroom was clean and spacious. Beds comfortable. The buffet dinner was Delicious and offered lots of choices. Complimentary coffee or tea in lounge was available all day and evening.Wifi in the lounge, as well as a bank of outlets to recharge phones, etc. Cool off with a dip in the pool. Lots of travelers gathered in the spacious lounge in late afternoon and evening, giving it a lively and friendly feel. The view from the lounge and adjacent deck was amazing. I met Annette, the owner, and she was just wonderful as well...really works hard to make her guests comfortable and happy.

My tent was clean and comfortable with toilet and nice shower.
Exciting (scary) to be in a tent alone with the wild animals just outside.
Great dinner buffet and breakfast and the view from the lodge is just amazing.
Wifi in the lounge area works well. Staff very friendly.
Highly recommended.

I have been writing reviews of most of the places I stayed on safari and realized I was being repetitive.

Like all camps I went to the staff was amazing and the food was good.

What set this camp up was the amazing views overlooking the park. We saw elephants and giraffes in the park from above and there were also monkeys playing on the grounds as well.

If you want to see hundreds of elephants, Tarangire is your place and this camp does the park justice.

Room Tip: The tents are lined up on a road which comes from the dining/living area. If you want a short easy w...

11/12/13 Tarangire Safari lodge -Tent 15- The view on the plain/river is amazing and the bar area is lovely for evening drink and enjoying the view. Wifi access. You're in the middle of the natural reserve and you are constantly reminded of this - be it due to the sign posts that warn you of the wild animals, or the animal sounds you hear when in the tent. We were visited by elephants, in the early evening and early morning, walking down the pathway in front of the tents. We also heard the growl of a lion during the night, and possibly digdigs rubbing themselves against the tent. Didn't get much sleep but it was exciting. As with all tented accommodation, check the beds and sheets and perhaps bring your own anti-insects spray. No problem with hot water. Staff is really friendly and we got to meet a wild cat with leopard colours that would eat bugs in the dining area.

What an amazing place. The entire lodge is set up along a cliff face so that you're looking down into the park. Watch a troop of elephants march across the plain and across the rivers. Watch them knock down a baobab tree. And that's just the beginning of an amazing number of species visible from the pathway atop the cliff.

But you don't even have to walk to the pathway for a more up-close view of so many animals. They come to you. The first morning, impalas came running between the tents to graze at the clifftop. Tiny dikdiks frequently made an appearance. Monkeys were everywhere - but be sure to zip your tent right up or they might try to get in and then you're facing the chaos of a tent in disarray on your return.

The best was the elephants who often grazed right behind our tent. One afternoon a couple of them wandered to the pathway and decided to eat up the garden. They left that in disarray. They then wandered down the path in front of all the tents, unintentionally pushing over small trees as they went.

For one of the best views in East Africa, walk down to the end of the property beyond the last tent on the non-pool side. Best at sunrise - you'll be looking at the vast plain from a high vantage point. The river bends right below you so that you're looking up it in two directions.

Best to bring binoculars. Not just for looking down onto the plain. A great array of birds is always flitting about.

Tents are comfortable and clean. Food is buffet-style. Plenty of selection or ask for a freshly prepared omelet or pancake at breakfast. All very good.

Room Tip: Tents on the pool side of the lodge are the best as you're closer to the edge of the cliff.

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
