Our group of four stayed here on our last night of Safari, after the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. It was a luxurious tent camp, with a spectacular lounge/bar, viewing terrace and dining room. The food was quite nice, the service exemplary and the tents comfortable, though worn. I can imagine that watching the animals come to the river to drink... More

A brilliant lodge with incredible views! The "tent" accommodation was excellent with a comfortable bed and bathroom area with plenty of storage. The staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. The food was very good with a wide selection - even for veggies. We even had the privilege of waking up to elephants outside our tent - a wonderful way to... More

Arriving at Tarangire Safari Lodge, one is blown away by the magnificent 180 degree view that meets you on arrival at the reception/lounge area. Seated at the well equipped outdoor area, overlooking the Tarangire River, one can easily sit for hours mesmerised as hordes of elephants and other animals wander through this beautiful park. It is hard to draw yourself... More

View overlooking Tarangire River is stunning as is main lodge building. Buffet meals were of good quality and diverse. Staff were consistently helpful. Tent "cabin" was a decent size and had all the basic amenities. Be aware power is on only a few hours each day.

Wow what a location. Our tent was comfortable and quite roomy. The food was very good and the service excellent. What really makes this lodge though is the amazing location. The views from the tents are amazing with the park and the Tarangerie river spread out in front of you enabling you to sit and watch all the wildlife. Baboons... More

We had one of the bungalows instead of a tent. Room was small, but it was comfortable. All meals taken in the lodge. More on quantity, not gourmet, but it was good. The view from the dining room were great, as were the views from the room. Didn't spend much time in the room or at the lodge, but it... More

The view is the first thing that strikes you when entering….you cannot capture this on any photo. Need to experience this. Checking in, out of the big cushion seats of the lobby, in front of your tent, out of the swimming pool or on the massive view point terrace…it is view view view. We had Elephants, Waterbucks, Monkeys and Gazelle... More

Such a nice lodge in the heart of a more wildlife diverse Tarangire National Park. The reception is humorous and the strategic view of the lodge is just fabulous overlooking the park - perfect view of elephants, zebras, giraffes...within the comfort of the lounge of the lodge, with a reluctant breeze from the valley below. The staff here has such... More

We have stayed the second time in this lodge, (1st time some years ago) and again we've been delighted. The lodge had been kept in a good shape but not overdone therefore thought still expensive, affordable. The tents are the same, have charme and keep you with the Safari feeling you night seek. Unfortunately (for us) we haven't had any... More
