This camp is perfectly located just outside the Tarangire Park, even if you like to go and visit Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro crater (the last one being a 2x2hrs drive away ...., but worth it).
We stayed 3 nights and visited those parks, being an amazing experience.
The camp left us with a very mixed feeling.... It's like you are in the middle of the park and not outside : elephants walking around at night (1 night we had 5 just nearby our tent .... wow...), giraffes walking through the river bedding in the morning, water bucks, amazing views, ... and, the great real sound of the bush all time. You experience wildlife here, even before you take off for your safari. Beautiful !
The canvas tents and facilities are top including all the comfort you can think about (even more considering where you are....having a swimming pool in a safari camp, that's not what you normally expect). So, all highly recommended.
On the other hand, this camp is mainly visited by safari tourists staying 1 night on the way from the one to the other park. High focus on getting as many as possible in & out (we stayed during high season...), something I understand, but don't make this treatment part of your management : dinner at 8.00pm (don't be late, or don't have a drink in the bar 2 mins after 8.00, management will come and get you as if you and you alone mix up the complete planning.
They manage to get dinner finished (for everybody // about 50 people) within 40 mins (record was 35 mins). Not what you are looking for considering the great location where you can enjoy the night 'views and sounds' during your meal.
Hoping that after dinner, you can enjoy the rest of your bottle of wine on the deck enjoying the million of stars, well you can, but expect the manager to come by after 20/30 mins to 'gently' get you back to your room (no bar service after dinner...). On the 3 nights we stayed, we were pushed back to our tent between 9.00 and 9.15 pm. By the way, for a 50 people service, in such a short time, the food was ok, but we normally look for better.
Breakfast as of 6.00am (don't ask a service before that time, impossible to get a coffee and or packed breakfast if you like to leave early for a morning safari // trying so ended up in a discussion with the management completely escalating), being very good by the way. Packed lunch is ok, but after 3 days you had enough potatoes...
Be ready to leave your room at 10am .... returning after a morning safari before we left and hoping to take a quick shower...impossible...the next shift of tourists came in....
It all looks like minor details, but it's the missing piece to make this camp really the absolute top. Having had an escalating discussion with management, you feel like you are part of the crowd (you are, I know, but hide it), being the one more number they have to handle. So, stick to the planning and don't ask for something, and more, don't argue ...you will be handled as by a major at the army...(could be me).
Different management at this place could make a major change, but again, if what you are looking for is wildlife and a great location, this is the place to be.
