Tarangire Safari Lodge – Suggested stay 4 days / 3 nights

This can be combined with other areas in Tanzania to achieve a varied safari.


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. The lodge was the first to be built in the park. Since 1985, it has been owned and managed by the Simonson family, who have added a very personal touch. 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. Between game viewing excursions, relax in our large, comfortable lounge. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the pool or browse in the Baobab Boutique. Accommodation choices are either a traditional canvas tent or a roomy stone bungalow, with all rooms having a direct valley view.

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.

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. All the beds have mosquito nets.Our 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.
