A friend and I brought a group to stay here last year and did the same this year. We decided to stay two nights this year to give everyone more time to relax and enjoy the lodge. I will definitely do the same again next time.
I would like to say a big asante sana to Annette. One of my group members had some mobility issues so Annette ensured the nearest tent to reception was reserved for her. Also, three members of my group had arrived at Kilimanjaro airport and discovered their bags hadn’t made the same journey. When Annette heard about this she organised some new underwear for the unlucky three and also offered a fleece to take with us when we left if the bags hadn’t arrived (on the understanding our tour operator would return it when next in the park). She also sent some paperwork to our tour operator to help with getting the bags from the airline.
The buffet style meals were excellent. There was always plenty of tasty options, even for our vegetarians.
All the staff here were nice but I would like to make special mention of John in the restaurant. He seemed to make an extra effort for our group and we appreciated it very much.
I'm looking forward to another return visit!
- 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
