Tarangire Lodge Safari
Tarangire Lodge Safari is built on the elevated ridge of the Tarangire River just outside the Tarangire National Park, overlooking the deep river valley and the Tarangire plains. Between July and December wildlife can be viewed from the rooms and the main building terrace. The lodge consists of luxury tents and bungalows, all with a small veranda where you can sit, relax, admire the view, and watch the wildlife. The large canvas doors of the tents unzip to reveal the bedroom, where you find two comfortable single beds and a writing table and chair. The Honeymoon Suite is situated near a ridge over the river and is furnished with a large double bed made of old dhow wood. The bathroom has a solar-heated shower with hot water, flush toilet, and a dressing room.
Tarangire Lodge Safari – Facilities
- In front of the bungalow is a smaller thatched hut with folding safari chairs and a table, which serves as a veranda. It offers a great view down into the valley and makes the perfect spot to unwind after a day’s game viewing, and sip a sun-downer while you enjoy the view.
- Food is uncomplicated, but good and there’s plenty of it; superb barbeques in the evening with every kind of meat you can imagine and endless salads.
- There’s also a swimming pool here set to one side, with a water slide which is guaranteed to keep children happy for hours.
Where Is It Located
- The lodge is located within the national park boundary of Tarangire National Park, approximately 10 km from the main entrance. The drive from bustling Arusha town is just under 2 hours, and transport from Kilimanjaro International Airport is nearly 3.5 hours.
