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...

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.

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!

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.

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
