Tarangire Safari Lodge


Tarangire Safari Lodge

Tarangire's original lodge, Tarangire Safari Lodge is a large, mid-range camp with the advantage of an impressive location on a high escarpment in the north of the park.

Tarangire Safari Lodge is a substantial mid-range safari lodge located in the northern sector of Tarangire National Park, close to the main gate. It was the very first camp to be set up within the park, and not surprisingly it has one of the most impressive locations, on a high escarpment ridge. From this high vantage point it offers stunning views of the Tarangire River below and the baobab and acacia strewn Tarangire plains that extend into the distance. During the dry season (July-Dec), when the grass is low and the game closer to the river, Tarangire Safari Lodge really comes into its own.

If not for its great location, Tarangire Safari Lodge would be an unremarkable camp. It is large (40 guest tents/bungalows) and fairly simple, lacking any distinctive characteristics. The public areas—open-air lounge and bar, dining room, swimming pool with loungers—are comfortable but somewhat characterless. Of course, all of this is reflected in the modest price, but those looking for a luxury camp, or just somewhere with a bit of charm and character, may find that Tarangire Safari Lodge feels a bit too much like a chain resort. On the other hand, for those looking for a comfortable stay in a prime location, Tarangire Safari Lodge is well worth considering. It was one of the first lodges to open in the park, and got one of the very best locations!


Tarangire Safari Lodge is quite large compared other safari camps in the area, with 35 guest tents and 5 bungalows. The tents are ordinary East African style Meru tents, built on a raised base and covered with a thatch roof. Each tent has a narrow verandah, twin/double beds, and writing desk and chair. At the back of each tent, separated by a canvas partition, is an en-suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet.

Constructed of stone and thatch, the bungalows are larger than the tents and have three beds making them more suitable for families.


The dining area is open-air (under thatch) and enjoys views of the surrounding landscape. Breakfast and lunch are self-service buffets. Dinner is a three-course meal, with a choice of main course.
