Lake Burunge Tented Camp

Lake Burunge Tented Camp is a excellent value mid-range camp situated just outside Tarangire National Park overlooking Lake Burunge.

Lake Burunge Tented Camp is a new safari camp set overlooking Lake Burunge just 15 minutes’ drive from Tarangire National Park. The elevated rooms and viewing decks provide superb views of the Lake and, beyond it, Tarangire. Rates here are comparatively modest and this, combined with the quality of the accommodation, make it a great option for visiting Tarangire on a sensible budget. The large luxury tents have hardwood floors, large beds with wrought iron frames and mosquito nets and are attractively furnished with colourful local fabrics. There is a central bar/dining area and a swimming pool, all with views of the lake.

We include Lake Burunge Tented Camp in our low-cost Northern Highlights small group safaris.


Lake Burunge Tented Camp offers just ten bungalows and twenty luxury en-suite tents.
The tents are our preferred option. They’re beautifully furnished, with wrought iron canopy beds, Maasai fabrics and oil lanterns combining to give them a wonderfully rustic feel. The large double tents are spacious and airy, with wooden flooring and large mesh windows to allow in the light.

All rooms are en-suite with built-in showers.


Meals are taken in the thatched dining room or on the open deck (weather permitting). Private dining on the decks can also be arranged, as can bush picnics.
