Great south African couple run this awesome Elewana retreat. Level of service and attention to detail, given that you're in the middle of nowhere, was a lovely surprise. Being greeted by a bull elephant at the entrance made clear that this is the real deal. Romantic dinners, and great pool/bar area for children to relax after safari. Food was another... More

We were staying in number 1, which was the furthest away from the main lodge, but it really added to the experience of ‘camping’ out in the bush – and an exciting walk back home at night with a local massai to protect us! The rooms were really big, clean and with fantastic views. This was our first safari stop... More

When planning our 20th anniversary trip we decided to go all out and travel to Africa, I had no idea where to begin, so we booked with SkySafari and I'm so happy we did! One of the stops was the Treetops, once I had a look at the pictures I have to say it was the one I was most... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It has a charm, the staff are friendly, safari is good and the treetops give you an authentic experience. I saw wonderful things in the national park. Also the lunch at the safari was a proper meal and very delicious. My criticisms would probably apply to most of the Tarangire hotels but Treetops... More

We had a very warm welcome to Treetops by 3 elephants below our balcony as we unpacked. The treehouse is awesome - we had a huge king bed for us and a daybed/sofa for my 12 year old daughter and still had plenty of room to spare. The rooms are amazing with a huge branch of the baobab tree over... More

Tarangire Tree Tops Lodge was our group's start of our first safari to Africa. (We over-nighted at Arusha Coffee Lodge, and Tree Tops was the first stop in the safari portion of the trip.) The individual tents are quite spacious and clean. The staff is delightful and aims to please. The Tree Tops Lodge being billed as "not far" from... More

Tarangire Treetops is a great lodging not far from Tarangire National Park. We stayed for a day during our honeymoon, and too bad we could not stay longer. Guests live on baobab trees, with nice views of the forest. Although we did not encounter animals during our stay, we heard elephants and other wildlife could approach. Quite cool. All comfort...

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. While not as luxurious as some of the other Elewana properties this one had its own unique character. The fact you are so close to nature - on one of the nights we were there we had an elephant at the gate trying to munch his way through to where we... More

I can only second the reviews already written below. If you are thinking about a safari in Tanzania, then go no further. Elewana Sky Safaris is the trip of a lifetime. My husband and I feel truly privileged to have experienced this wonderful adventure. Just do it!
