After 24 years I return to Tarangire Safari Lodge- and what a welcome! The warm welcome from the owners was fantastic- they made me feel like home in a second. The lodge has the nice and warm feel in the atmosphere as I remember it. The lounge is huge with big and comfy couches and armchairs where you can relax... More

We spent 2 nights at the Safari Lodge and loved it! We were greeted by the magnificent views over the park. It was fabulous to reflect on the day's sightings by watching the antics of elephants and impala at the river below. We even had some dik diks 1 metre in front of us! Heading back to the tent was...

Our first 2 nights on safari were at this delightful lodge. Tents were nicely decorated with curtains that you could pull back and see the abundant impalas running around. Very nice attached washrooms with great shower (shower gel and shampoo provided)/flushing toilet facilities. Multiple lights all solar powered; wifi and charging station available in the main lodge. Great verandah with... More

Spent two nights here as a first stop on a trip around Tanzania and could not have been more satisfied with this lodge! In fact, it set the bar for all future lodges/camps to be compared against and came out being the favorite in a month of traveling Tanzania. The tents we stayed in were immaculately maintained and wildlife was... More

We had a mixed experience at the Tarangire Safari Lodge. On the positive side, the view from the lodge (and the tents and cabins) is superb and the common dining area and lounge is set up perfectly for everyone to experience the Tarangire environment. And it appears that wildlife, especially elephants, are really fond of the surroundings - we saw... More

Hello MR-EDH, Thank you for your review. From 1 YEAR AGO, you have a great memory of your stay! Happy to tell you that since then, we do have a new Receptionist and Damian has retired. Not sure though who it was that forgot your requests. As it should be, our regrets that the solar temperatures & lunch box requests... More

This was one of our favorite places we stayed while on our safari trip! We only got to stay one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The tents are large and comfortable, and spotless clean!

Stayed in the lodge for two nights and we loved it. Inside the park, so saves you having to do much driving at beginning and the end of the day. People were very nice and buffet style meals were plentiful and delicious (lots of options even for the vegetarian in the group). Pool was a bit chilly but very refreshing... More

We stayed a couple of nights, Imagine Africa had included it in out holiday plan. With stunning views, and wildlife wondering past the tents it really is a safari experience. Tarangire park is exellent during the dry season, and this is THE place to stay for a visit.
