Very nice personnel, pleasant stay, fantastic view and very good, simple food. Tents are very clean, well maintained and all enjoy a fabulous view of the valley. Temperature inside is perfect (almost too chilli in the morning) due to the updraft of air from the valley below. Electricty is on only few hours a day as usual in these type... More

This is a wonderful place from which to explore the Tarangire National Park. The tents are very comfortable, the food is very good, and the views are to die for. A great place to come back to after a dusty day on the safari trail. Highly recommended. (stored solar electricity is turned off at night so plan ahead)

Great room in the tent, great view, easy access to go into the crater the next day. There are plenty of animals to view. Customer service was amazing as we had car trouble and arrived late, but were made to feel very welcome.

We spent a wonderful afternoon on the deck of the Tarangire Lodge overlooking the valley and river filled with zebra and water buffalo cooling off. Dinner was superb, and just relaxing in the reception area was an elegant experience. WiFi was available so we could check for emails and send pictures. We slept in comfortable tents with real beds and... More

We arrived here after driving 2+ hours from Arusha on the first day of our 8-day Safari-tour with Duma Explorer. This lodge is only 10 minutes from the main entrance of Tarangire National Park. Being one of the oldest lodges in the Park, it’s impressively situated on the escarpment ridge giving away the most incredible views, overlooking the area’s famous... More

Wow Thank you SD3TravelBirds for the 5 Stars and detailed review. Happy you enjoyed our service and view from all settings. In reference to the 'hiccup' with the bar bill - For Registration purposes it has nothing to do with the bar bills. Each guest is responsible for his/her own bar tab.

A wonderful place to stay in Tarangire! You will be amazed by the views of the sweeping plains and Mara River below the veranda of the hotel. We literally sat all afternoon and watched wildlife below us as we enjoyed a beverage and looked out through our binoculars. The tents give you an authentic safari experience. Food was great.

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
