Tarangire Safari Lodge

Tarangire Safari Lodge is situated on a panoramic bluff in Tarangire National Park, with one of Tanzania's most spectacular views, encompassing acacias and baobabs, plentiful wildlife and the Tarangire river. Game drives within Tarangire National Park are a year-round wildlife spectacle!

The river flows through the park and is a magnet for wildlife, especially large populations of elephant. The park also contains varied and contrasting landscapes and unrivalled birdlife.

At the heart of the lodge are the impressively high thatched roofs of the lounge and dining area.

The open design allows for an uninterrupted landscape view and captures the cooling breeze.


TENTS: Our tents are sturdy and comfortable - built on a solid base, with a thatched roof and verandah, screened windows with large curtains and en-suite bathrooms with solar heated showers.

All our tents have been recently refurbished with new textiles and ten tents have double beds.

BUNGALOWS: Our five bungalows are built from local stone in the circular style of Maasai huts. The thick walls, large windows and thatched roofs ensure that they remain cool.

There are five bungalows suited as triples or family units.

All the beds have mosquito nets.

Spacious en-suite bathrooms include a large shower and plenty of solar heated water.

Each bungalow has a shaded verandah allowing for comfortable viewing of a large water hole.


Enjoy our international homestyle safari cuisine in our spacious, open-air dining room. All of our fruit and vegetables are freshly grown at Simba Farm, on West Kilimanjaro. Our breakfast buffet includes a healthy spread that suits every taste and an eager cook is ready to prepare eggs or pancakes in front of you. Tanzanian tea and coffee with our signature cinnamon rolls are brought to your table.

Lunch is buffet style with a varied selection of soups, salads, hot and cold dishes. Pastry or fruit salad compliments every meal.

A three course dinner by candlelight, along with a wide selection of wine, is the ideal way to end your day. We have an early dinner for young children. Our chefs can cater for any dietary requirements.


The Pool: Take a refreshing dip in our inviting outdoor pool. Children may also enjoy the splash pool in the same vicinity.

The Baobab Boutique: Welcome to our shop with gifts for all ages. Most of the smaller items and textiles sponsor and support local women throughout Tanzania.

Main Lounge & Bar: Our lounge couches and coffee tables are all individually handcrafted from recycled hardwood from old beached dhows on the Tanzanian coast.

We invite you to make yourself comfortable and enjoy a book or newspaper from our book exchange along with a refreshing drink.

Coffee and Tea is complimentary all day long. Our bar offers a wide variety of spirits and cocktails as well as many local beers and wines.

Don't miss our "Sunset Sundowner" with complimentary savouries, on our idyllic front terrace between 6 - 7pm.


Game viewing from the veranda can be excellent, with large herds of elephant, giraffe & other animals coming down to the river to drink.

The grounds are also highly attractive for birders, not only for the remarkably habituated hornbills, buffalo-weavers & starlings that parade around the common areas, but also for the host of smaller birds that are resident in the acacia scrub."
