The property is beautiful and rustic. The "tents" are raised off the ground, have a solid wood floor and high thatched roof, with large balcony and 2 chairs. View of lake is a bit obscured by overgrown trees and bushes. Water in taps and showers comes from the lake, so don't drink or brush your teeth with it. Bottled water... More

What a unique (for a first time traveler to Africa anyway!) place to spend a night between safaris at Tarangire and Lake Manyara parks. The place was a bit challenging to find (they need better road signs!), but after getting there, the staff took great care of our group. The central lodge as well as individual tented lodges have great... More

How do you get a terrible rating when you have a wonderful staff, beautiful location and very nice accomodations? Easy, you lie to, and rip off your guests. I was aware that it was a long drive to Tanangire's main entrance over a rough road from earlier research. However management claimed that the drive was necessary because of the very... More

I loved this place. I did read past reviews and wouldn't have liked to be a small group or couple here while OAT was "in the house", but as I was on an OAT trip, I loved it. I no longer camp rough at home so enjoyed the upgrade to running water and in tent shower; and had no complaints... More

We stayed here at the start of our safari in Tanzania. First the plusses: its a beautiful location with a good view of the lake Burunge. And the staff try their utmost to make you feel at home: no it isn't the Waldorf, but they are helpful and friendly. Our bungalow was clean, had all the facilities and everything was... More

We totally enjoyed our 2 nights here. Comfortable; scenic and just what we needed to experience Africa on our safari trip. Our tent had a raised floor and two comfortable beds with mosquito netting. Attached bathroom. Porch on the front that gave us a view of the lake.

The camp at Lake Burunge was a delightful place to stay. The tents were very nice and clean and the staff was very helpful. The only drawback is that the planned entry to Tarangire National Park is not currently open, so there was a fairly long drive to tour the park. The drive was worth it though as the park... More

I loved this camp. I went on an OAT trip and this was the camp we stayed at while touring Tarangire Park. Yes, the road to the camp was winding and bumpy, but this is Africa. When we arrived, they had cold towels to wipe our faces and fresh squeezed passion fruit juice. The staff was friendly. I loved the... More

This is the way to "camp"! The tents are permanant structures, very large, w/ real beds, flush toilets and showers. The main area is awesome and the staff were all great. The food was good, not spectacular, lots of delicious veggies! Don't know if it was the time of year we were there, but the lake was quite a way... More

This trip to Tanzania was 40 years in the coming and one of the things I didn't expect (or want) was luxury hotels - I can get those anywhere. Staying at the Lake Burunge Tented Camp gave us the feeling that we were really in Africa without having to forgo hot showers or flush toilets. Personally, I thought these were... More
