I visited with my family during a safari this summer. The staff was very friendly and we slept in comfortable beds. The tents are safe at night and you are escorted by Maasai guards when sun sets, which is welcomed. Overall it was an enjoyable and safe stay.

This was our first stop and last chance for a shower and bed before embarking on a missions trip. It was beautiful and strangely romantic, with the mosquito netting on the beds and in the middle of nature itself. The staff was very helpful and generous. The buffet we were served was wonderful-- a little gamey tasting but great. I... More

16 y/o Junior and I were on a Camping safari. Our TO threw in a night of luxury before we started. However, the unique point is that visitors have the option of cooking and eating in a private enclosure. So you have the best of both worlds: the luxury of solid beds to sleep on, a roof over your heads... More

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.
