We stayed at Lake Burunge Camp for two nights as part of our group safari. The “rooms” are large tents with permanent flooring, plumbing and electricity. They are easily the size of a regular hotel room and just as comfortable. The neighboring “tent” is quite a distance away so noise is not an issue. The bar/restaurant area is an open... More

After an one hour ride from the Tarangire National Park and after going through some dirt road and heavy brush, we arrived to an unexpected main area with high ceiling furnished with oversized comfortable sofa adjacent to a deck area overlooking to a wilderness area and a blue lake in the distance where candle lit buffet style dinner is served...

This was my first experience in a "tented camp". It is pretty darn nice in my opinion. The camp is located in a remote area within walking distance to Lake Burunge, but not physically in the Tarangire National Park. Driving to this camp on a narrow remote road through thick vegetation you suddenly stop in an open area and the... More

Not for the traditional luxury hotel lovers. Definitely not a roughing out lodging but a few must have like electricity and in room coffee service may be missed. Additionally, may feel a little scary for the faint hearted since it is set in the wilderness.The rooms are like cottage style with a greater view of the lake so that is... More

First,the camp is outside the national park,but faces open land with animals and the lake.Yet wi-fi is free,cabins are spacious with showers and dinner is under the stars. All meals were buffet style with good desserts.Tanzanian coffee is flavorful . The main lodge had recharging station next to a friendly bar.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while we were on an OAT safari in Tanzania, The tents here a more like a hotel room than a tent. The tent sits on a wooden platform so you have a hard wood floor and a door that locks. The tent is large and well maintained, the toilet, shower, and... More

We stayed in Lake Burunge tented camp for two nights on our trip with Overseas Adventure Travel ((OAT). The camp, staff and the area were terrific. It was amazing how they whipped up some really good meals in the middle of nowhere! The views from the main dining room lodge and from the deck of our raised tent were amazing.... More

We were here for two nights and enjoyed the peacefulness of the lake, our cabin had a wonderful front porch to relax and think about all the interesting and beautiful animals we had seen on the game drive. The beds were comfortable and the food was good. Dining under the moon was fun. The best part was the guards singing... More

Located in the midst of the wilderness, our camp featured solar-heated showers, electricity and very comfortable walk-in safari tents under thatched roofs.

We stayed here two nights while we visited Tarangire. It was the first tented camp of our itinerary, and we were not disappointed. The open lounge area was very comfortable, and the evening meals on the deck overlooking the lake were magical! The food was very good and I appreciated the options for a vegetarian. The birds that surround the... More
