Elephants & baobab trees are all you see in Tarangire NP. We saw a few birds too. The place is full of tse tse flies. The lodge is depressing. The rooms were not very clean. The balcony facing the jungle was so dirty, that I did not even go outside to have a look. I didn't even bother to take photos of the room, a thing that I usually do. The giftshop at the hotel was expensive beyond imagination (most expensive in our trip). The service was terrible. They give running hot water only till 9 PM. I needed hairwash after the safari. So I thought to have my hairwash after dinner, as the dinner timing was 7 PM sharp. There wasn't any buffet, it was a set menu. They served it so slowly that it ended at 9:30 PM. 2 hrs 30 mts for a dinner !!! Of course I could not have the hairwash that day as hot water was not available at 9:30 PM. Interestingly in that slow dinner half the things in the set menu were not available for all. However the buffet breakfast the following day was a better experience. I am glad that we stayed there only for one night. I am definitely not going back to this lodge.
