Truly a slice of heaven! So peaceful and restoring. I only got to stay one night, but loved the food, the tent accommodations, and the lodge. Annette was wonderfully helpful. Gives a new meaning to 'customer service'. I went on the night drive, morning walk, and 1/2 day game drive with guide Brendan (Annette's son who has lived there his whole life). What a great guide and wealth of information he is! The vehicle we used was open with a canopy on top, which was SO much better than the closed land rovers that the other safari people were using. At one point when we were stopped, a bull elephant walked by our vehicle so close I could have reached out and touched it. Just magical!
- 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
