As others have said the reason to stay here is the great location on a bluff overlooking a river valley where the animals are constantly coming and going. The huge baobob trees along the cliff edge are truly impressive. The main drawback here is that the tents are too close together and you can hear every word your neighbors say... More

We stayed at Tarangire Safari Lodge for three nights in early June. The facilities were wonderful and the staff very warm and helpful. The tents are on a ridge looking down at the park, so we were able to watch elephants and giraffe coming to the stream from our front porch. The main lodge is nicely laid out, with both... More

First and foremost is the terrace. It (along with the rest of the lodge) is up on a bluff overlooking acres of wildlife - giraffes, elephants, lions, and on and on. It is stunning. You could spend the entire day just sitting on this large terrace observing animals - and then spend the evening watching the stars! The permanent tents... More

We stayed for one night and had a very nice time. Marvelous views from the terrace at sunset and sunrise. Food in the restaurant was good both at dinner and with breakfast. We had one little water supply issue with one of the tents, whch was corrected instantly. The location, friendly staff and nice bar and reception area make this... More

Stayed here for one night in two Bungalows & one tent. Reached late & found the Owner Annette giving us a warm welcome & showed our tent. We had a quick shower & headed to the Dinner.

Hello kvm_77 Thank you for your review! Happy to read that you enjoyed the catering here. Night drives can be quiet at times - full moon may cause this - or it may be very active. Great that the park wildlife met your satisfaction. "Asante sana" A. Simonson More

Rooms have been updated. Nice rooms with nice shower. Water not so hot though. Staff are very friendly and the food is good. They spray the room every evening and have very nice mosquito nets. If staying in Arusha before going on safari, buy water and alcoholic beverages at the grocery store. They can be a bit pricey at the... More

We recently spent a night here during our 5 day safari and was aware we were camping the first night so had some concerns however this is camping on a posh scale.

Tarangire Safari Lodge has a distinctive warm and welcoming feel, and it was my favorite lodge of our 8 day safari. Would definitely stay again, and for 2 nights next time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built on top of a high bluff with a breathtaking panorama, our lodge is superbly located in Tarangire National Park, providing one of the best views in Africa. Carving out the landscape below the lodge is the Tarangire River, a favourite watering place, which attracts impressive numbers and a variety of game. The scene unfolds before you while lounging on the outdoor patio, allowing you to appreciate Tarangire's diverse wildlife. At the heart of the lodge are the impressively high thatched roofs of the lounge and dining room. The open-sided design allows an uninterrupted view of the landscape and wildlife below, and captures the cooling breeze while you dine on our delicious home cooked safari cuisine. The lounge area has oversized armchairs made from old dhow boats, which make a perfect place to relax. Those wanting something a bit more active can take a dip in the pool, a bird walk around the lodge grounds or hunt for souvenirs in the Baobab boutique. Our twin tents combine the authentic safari atmosphere of 'nights under canvas', with more modern comforts of electric light and en suite bathrooms with solar hot water. We also have bungalows that provide the space and convenience of solid walls yet blend into their surroundings by using local stone and echoing the traditional round Maasai huts. Tarangire Safari Lodge offers morning & evening bush walks along the river, Night Drives and Game Drives and don't miss a massage with a view at "Patulivu"! "Karibuni" or Welcome! ... more   less
