Staying at the Tarangire Safari Lodge was an exciting experience for several reasons. I went with some friends and we stayed in two adjacent tents. As we were settling in the first afternoon, we witnessed five elephants grazing just behind our tents. After that, the impalas
appeared, and apparently, this was their favorite area, because they stayed through the afternoon, into the evening and slept between our tents all night.
Another reason I loved this lodge was the huge viewing area where we ate our meals. It overlooks the savannah and commands a breathtaking view of the Tarangire River. That evening, we watched the best moon rise I've ever seen. Have I mentioned the food and wine? I loved the wines offered and the food was delicious, every last bit of it. We stayed out on the deck for a long time that evening, enjoying our wine and our dinner under the stars watching the moon rise over the Tarangire landscape.
The staff were lovely; everyone bent over backwards to make this a very pleasant stay for us. I would recommend this lodge to anyone as a relaxing place to go for pampering as well as enjoying the glorious scenery of Tarangire Park.
- 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
