There were 17 of us (mostly spoiled women from the US) on this adventure and we were delighted with the accommodations at Tanangire Safari Lodge. I had been very apprehensive about all this tent stuff but my fears were assuaged as soon as I saw the tile shower and flush toilet! ;-) Our tents were in a beautiful location overlooking the huge valley floor below and the river. The sounds at night were amazing - I really thought an elephant was giving birth one night! The food was really good and Esther, our waitress, couldn't have been more charming! What a smile. The charging station at the bar is so fun... any and every possible electronic gadget can be found there! The park itself is full of elephants and zebra -- 2 of my favorites! We saw tons of other animals and birds and of course the iconic baobab trees! If we didn't have lots more to see, I would have loved a 3rd night here.
- 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
