Tarangire Safari Lodge

Our luxury twin tents combine the authentic safari atmosphere of 'nights under canvas', with more modern comforts of electric light and en suite bathrooms with 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.

The lounge area has oversized armchairs made from old Zanzibari dhow boats, which make a perfect place to relax in the evenings. 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 bungalows are built from local stone in the circular style of Maasai huts. Their thick walls, large windows and thatched roof ensure that they remain cool even in the heat of the day. The rooms are tastefully furnished and spacious, light and airy. Electric lights and sockets are powered by our camp generator

Forget whatever association camping brings to mind, this is something quite different. Our tents are spacious, sturdy and comfortable - more like a room with canvas walls than tents of our childhood. Built on a solid base; with a thatched roof, screened windows and en suite stone-walled bathroom, our tents provide all the space and comforts you need.

The bathroom includes a solar-heated shower with ample hot water, flush toilet, and a dressing room with a wash basin, mirror, clothes rack and laundry basket.

Take a dip in the pool to relax and freshen up after a game drive. The waterslide and splash pool make this area popular with kids of all ages. Poolside lounge chairs can be used for sun bathing or as a cool retreat in the shade for reading your favourite novel or dozing in the afternoon.

THE BAOBAB BOUTIQUE - If you feel like doing a little souvenir shopping, don't miss our well-stocked gift shop. Filled with books on African wildlife, culture, and history, clothes created with local fabrics, colorful textiles, and beaded silver jewelry, we have a unique mix of tasteful handcrafts made by local artisans - there is something to tempt everyone.
