The spacious tents are constructed on platforms complete with wooden floors, large en-suite dressing room, toilet and shower. There are twin and queen tents; triples are possible. There is also a family tent with two queen-sized beds. Additionally there is an outdoor shower and each tent has a private veranda with views to the bush and Lake Burunge. Furnishings are handcrafted from African hardwood complimented with tastefully selected fabrics; electricity and hot water are solar powered. Full amenities are provided.
Tarangire Treetops run by Elewana, a trusted safari operator with some of Tanzania’s top properties in their portfolio. The camp itself is amazing. The rooms, the layout, the views. It’s an ideal setting for a safari camp and the quality of the product really shines through. But the only drawback is that the camp is located outside the park. This isn’t the most appropriate of locations when there are some excellent properties inside the park. Our first choice property here is Olivers Camp, then Swala which are both in the park, and Tarangire Treetops would next
Maramboi Tented Camp
Relax after a day of emotions in a luxury camp with the best views of the Great Rift Valley
Wildlife calls at the door of Maramboi Tented Camp. Zebras, giraffes, warthogs, gazelles. You could see them appear between the palm trees from the terrace of your exclusive tent, from the swimming pool whilst enjoying a cool drink after a walk with a Maasai guide or whilst you enjoy a delicious dinner under the stars.
Situated in the ecosystem of lake Manyara, in fields of golden vegetation, Maramboi Tented Camp brings together premium services, exclusive attentions and genuine hospitality in a spectacular scene.
Tarangire Sopa Lodge
After enjoying a long leisurely game drive between herds of wild animals and along miles of Africa’s seemingly endless roads, you come over a slight rise and the lodge appears almost immediately below you.
Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the Tarangire National Park - home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter.
Balloon Camp Tarangire
One of the newest properties in Tarangire, Balloon Camp is, as the name suggests, connected with the balloon safari operator, Adventures Aloft and is operated by the Mada Hotel Group. Being situated close to Boundary Hill, to the eastern side of the park, allows the property excellent views out over Silala swamp to the south and this is probably the choice of the less expensive properties inside of the park.
Tarangire River Camp
If you are looking for an authentic safari experience under traditional canvas showcasing spacious views and enriching culture, Tarangire River Camp is the perfect choice.
Set within a 25,000-hectare concession area, Tarangire River Camp is located 3.5 km from the main entrance of the Tarangire National Park, overlooking a branch of the Tarangire River itself.
Nestled between the Maasai Steppe and The Great Rift Valley, Tarangire features the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. It is the distinct animal life of the park’s river that serves as the primary attraction. During the dry season, elephant dig deep into the riverbed while antelope congregate around shrinking water holes, closely followed by predatory animals like lion and leopard. Tarangire is also the country’s bird and baobab paradise.
Whistling Thorn Tented Camp
Whistling Thorn is set in in a typical African thorn-tree bush landscape, right next to the Kwakuchinja Wildlife Corridor, that is used by the animals to go from Tarangire to Lake Manyara in search for water and grasses. During the migration periods, you may be lucky to witness the migration of zebras, wildebeest and elephants right from the veranda of your tent. It’s a small camp, run by the people of local Maasai villages and definitely something out of the ordinary safari experience. This is where nature, culture, and conservation come together in the heart of wild Africa.
Whistling Thorn Camp can accommodate up to twelve guests in six spacious canvas tents under permanent grass-thatched ramadas. Each tent has shelving, a writing desk and an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and a hot shower. From the private, shaded veranda, you can overlook the parklands of Whistling Thorns and the flat-topped acacia trees where giraffe, zebra and elephant graze, and the occasional Maasai warriors wander by.
Ecoscience Center & Luxury Lodge
Ecoscience Science Center and Luxury Lodge has developed a very original concept which combines a Luxury Lodge with a Scientific Center where researchers of various fields can meet and work on their specific projects.
Our guests can choose to sleep either in the Lodge section or in the Tents (upon availability) and they can interact with the researchers present on the site when they visit us.
Sanctuary Swala is located in a secluded part of Tarangire National Park and has twelve luxurious canvas pavilions, all shaded by acacia trees and all with views over the waterhole and plains in front of camp.
In the heart of Maasai country and a remote corner of the Tarangire, in total seclusion amongst giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savannah, Sanctuary Swala offers a very exclusive safari experience. The picturesque landscape is filled with ancient baobab trees, ambling elephants and birds in flight. Built to the highest eco-friendly standards, this camp has a particularly low-carbon footprint.
