Tent camping at it's best. Walk out the door and there is a beautiful view of a savanna with elephants walking to the river to drink and bath. The food and staff excellent. Each tent has its own bathroom, which is a big plus. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view, drinks and snacks both before... More

The tents at Tarangire Safari Lodge are well designed and comfortable if a little small. The service is very good. The food is good but not great, better than several other edges we experienced. The setting of the lodge is magnificent, the view spectacular and the patio overlooking the savanna is wonderful. The park is also excellent for game drives...we... More

We had a very pleasant 2 night stay at Tarangire Safari Lodge and it was a very pleasant experience. Since last time we visited this lodge, it has been a bit upgraded! Of course the fantastic view remained the same :-) Tents are okay with en-suite bathrooms (we had 9-10-11), the best thing about them is sit in front, watch... More

We stayed only a night at the lodge which was actually a shame. It is a beautiful place with an incredible view! First you are welcomed in a huge reception area. A bliss after a day of safari. And it's super comfy. The tents are basic but clean and it's just a luxury to have a bed and toilet in... More

We had an excellent stay for the night we spent in Tarangire National Park. We felt immersed in the wildlife of the park and enjoyed the tented rooms. Unlike some of the tented lodges across Tanzania parks this one is permanently situated, it doesn't move, which means a hot shower is available when you need it instead of at request.... More

The scenery from the lodge is beautiful and we liked the buffet dinner. The lodge itself is actually a tent attached to a private shower and toilet. The bed was a bid hard for our taste and you need some time to get used to all the animal noises (especially the birds in the morning), but hey - you are... More

Absolutely loved our stay at this lodge and the park itself was amazing. The beauty of this park far surpasses the Serengeti. The Baobab trees are spectacular and the large herds of elephants roaming are a joy to watch. Great place for families and some down time from safari'ing. You can simply grab your binos and watch the animals roam... More
