This is a superbly enjoyable place to spend a few days to really experience what this park has to offer. It is well-managed, very capably staffed and the setting is extraordinary. From host Annette's greeting as you arrive, to the most friendly and helpful service from the front desk crew (e.g.: Janet, Damian, Racquelli) to the dining room folks (Elise and all) to the great guiding game drive skills (Brendan and Racquelli), it all came together to create an outstanding experience for me post-Mt Kili climb. Everyone I encountered on the team went out of their way to make my stay top notch. Additonally, the guests were an eclectic mix of travelers that added greatly to the quality of the stay.
Tasty mealtime food, decent wine options at the bar, amazing views of the park, sounds and sights of animals all around and a cozy/rustic/comfy tent. This place is a totally awesome lodge.
I really suggest you stay for at least a couple nights. And don't expect to spend too much time on the internet, it's $10/hour.
- 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 terrace, 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 ~ 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"! Welcome! ... more less
