We stayed at Tarangire Safari Lodge for three nights in early June. The facilities were wonderful and the staff very warm and helpful. The tents are on a ridge looking down at the park, so we were able to watch elephants and giraffe coming to the stream from our front porch. The main lodge is nicely laid out, with both an outside balcony and shaded indoor sitting area also looking out over the park. The tent was very spacious and comfortable with solar LED lighting, and very clean en suite bathroom facilities (just be sure to not leave any medications in the bathroom part-our friends did and some vervet monkeys got in and went through their stuff). Meals were buffet style and very food. There is a place to charge batteries and laptops by the manager's desk. Best part: hearing the sounds of the animals (including lions roaring) at night. Great experience.
- 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
