As part of a three-day safari package, we questioned the meaning of tenting on the itinerary at the end of the first day. We were pleasantly surprised to find our tent flap opened to a queen-sized bed, real toilet (not a "squatty potty" I had become accustomed to), shower, and sink!! As the other reviews say, the views from the... More

We stayed at this lodge I'm October2014. Very good service and amenities. Tents very functional and everything that you need. The view to the valley below is awesome and it is amazing to sit and watch as countless elephants, giraffes and other animals walk by. If your on safari in Tara gore this is a great place to stay.

The experience at this lodge was exceptional from beginning to end! We were able to see, hear, and be a part of the amazing African environment. If you are looking for a traditional hotel, then visit elsewhere. However, if you are looking for an opportunity to be immersed in authentic Africa yet still feel safe, enjoy amazing food, and appreciate... More

Recently stayed at Tarangire Safari Lodge while in Tanzania at the recommendation of my tour operator. The view from the balcony/look out area was spectacular. The service and welcome provided by reception was great. Found food and service in the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner to be great. The best feature of the lodge is the ability to hear...

We spent two nights here in one of the tents. It was clean and comfortable, and I'd definitely recommend it. The lodge area has comfortable couches inside where you can get free (if slow) wifi, and the deck overlooking the river is just amazing -- being able to sit with a drink and watch the animals play in the water...

During our safari in September 2014 we stayed here for one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer. When we arrived at this lodge, we couldn't believe what we saw, the view was amazing! The terrace overlooks a big part of Tarangire NP and it's great to sit and relax there in the late afternoon and spot animals... More

We began our week long safari with two nights here. The view was spectacular and the dinners and breakfast had good options with lots of flavour. We were in tent #14 and were disappointed to find two single beds. When we asked if there was a double option we were told tents were only set up with singles. We could... More

We spent 1 night at the hotel and took a night safari. Location is superb and the "tents" are so comfy with great bathroom facilities. The hotel's website does not do justice to how incredible the accommodations are. Food is fantastic and the view is out of this world. I highly recommend taking the night safari, such an incredible experience.
