I was staying here for one night with my group during safari trip. Everything is perfect there! Starting amazing balcony with an overview of the whole savanna with drinking animals and ending with amazing breakfast and dinner. We were living in bungalow for 3 persons. I had here one of the best sleepings during my trip to Tansania. Fresh air,...

A nice and special place! very good location overlooking the NP and the river where you can see elephants, girafs and many more animals during day and night time. Take a sundowner drink on the large terrace and get inspired by the view. Good food and very friendly and competent staff. It was my 2nd time and I would choose...

We have 3 kids and stayed one tent and one bungalow. The view from the rooms were fantastic. It is like 4 star hotel in a city. The lounge is huge and we can relax very well. The foods were so good. I saw people staying at the lodge without going out to safari during the day time. I understood...

We stayed for two nights on two occasions - this the best lodge we have ever stayed in. Attention to details, amazing managers and staff! The tents are the perfect combo of comfort on the inside but feeling part of the natural landscape on the outside. The view of the river in at sunrise is not to be missed!

During our game drive in Tarangire we stopped here for lunch. Two from our group had the buffet, which looked nice and they enjoyed however it was $25. The rest of the group ordered from a "snack menu". A few of us had the burger which they enjoyed. I ordered a cheese and tomato sandwich which was unfortunately completely inedible....

TSL was the best lodge we stayed in during our entire safari trip. The lodge is situated on the top of a bluff and the view of the river at the bottom is amazing. You can sit on your porch in the morning and watch the animals come to drink water. The tents are comfortable and the showers are hot...

I didn't stay here but I did stop here two days for lunch since I was camping in the park. The dining area is situated with an excellent view out over the valley and all the wildlife down there. You can eat here without being a guest and the food is great. They also have public restrooms that are very...

The opportunity to stay in Tarangire NP is incredible! Perched above the river, it has an beautiful view of what is happening below, a definite vantage point at sunset, with a cocktail in hand. The 'glamping' tents are comfortable, though if it is windy - as it was for us - a decent night's rest might be a little elusive....

We have been here 3 years ago: it did not disappoint us, it was just as good as that days! Nice clean luxury tents, excellent food, great friendly staff and a real nice terrace overlooking the NP. One to recommend!!!

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
