So where else in the world does a Masai armed with a shotgun and a machete escort you to your tent, and then you take a shower or bath in a low tub in the shape of a seventeen-foot shark stretching across the length of the bathroom? This is a very good tented camp with quality management and staff, and... More

We stayed for two nights during our visit to Tarangire National Park. The lodge is in the bush, outside the park boundary, but close enough to the entrance that you can still get an early start. Supposedly wildlife roam through the area at night but we didn't hear or see much while we were there. Our tent was quite close... More

Let me first say that Roika Tented camp meets all of the standard requirements one would look for in a hotel: the rooms are clean, the hotel is in a good location close to Tarangire park, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is simple but good. The swimming pool is murky but not enough to dissuade small... More

After a long day exploring the park we were happy to find our tent to be better than expected. The tent was very clean, the shower was large with hot water and the porch was great to sit on in the morning and watch the world around you come to life. The lodge is surrounded by the animals as they... More

The spender is largely the property itself.. Charming raised tented cabins, where animals roam through the site at night and all walks between cabins and or the dinning hall / front desk area... ALL must be accompanied by a Maasi with a light and shotgun. They are ready and "Johnny on the spot" ready when you need them. They're not... More

We didn’t actually stay in the tented camp rooms however I felt it was appropriate to provide this feedback. My wife and I were on a self-drive 4WD camping trip around northern Tanzania, and tiring of the usual poor value, facility-less national park camp sites, we decided to camp out in the camp ground at the Roika tented lodge. Even... More

This is a very nice and well run tented lodge just outside Tarangire National Park. The manager and all the staff are very very kind and do all their best to ensure guests are comfortable and their needs satisfied. Meals are abundant and very good quality I would certainly go back

The manager of this property was justifiably proud of it and anxious that we had a nice time. We received a very warm greeting having travelled for several bone-jarring hours to get there. It's like a little oasis in the middle of the bush. The "tents" were extremely comfortable with great bathrooms and a lovely balcony. We were a family... More

The first tented camp of our safari was a wonderfuly good surprise as their website does not do justice to this nicely decorated place. We had such a warm welcome that we felt at home right away ! The tents are very confortable with incredible facilities considering where we are (there's even a kettle with all you need to make... More

We spent two nights at this lodge and liked it a lot. The tents were big and someone had been in a creative mood when designing this place. Our tent was themed 'monkey' and so the mirror, chair and bedposts featured monkeys. We also had a really cool shower with water coming out of a snake. We received chocolates on... More
