Pardon the delay in writing this review but am doing so because we are heading back in late May for a third time to visit the Tarangire Safari Lodge. I was last there with my friend Peyton in November of 2013 for a weekend getaway from our work in Moshi. All that I can say is that is that the...

The lodge itself is beautiful, but it's location makes it spectacular. The lodge overlooks the Tarangire National Park, which, during our visit, was full of elephants, giraffes, antelope, and thousands of other animals. I could have spent hours just sitting on the lodge patio watching the elephants eat and the baboons play. The food was some of the best we...

I loved this lodge, I think mostly because of the outstanding view over the river and the friendly, helpful owner and staff. The camp wasn't full when we arrived, and they let us look at both the bungalows and tents to decide which would be better for us. I chose a tent for the better view and the ambiance. The...

I was last in Tarangire in March 2009. When planning this trip for the same month, I had one Trip Operator that said “we won’t go to Tarangire because there are no animals there at that time and nothing but tse tse flies.” Now things could have changed, and yes, I do remember some tse tse flies, but I do...

Hello MichiganLaurena, Thank you for sharing your reveiw. Happy you came - regardless of someone else's opinion for this time of year. Another advantage is fewer vehicles in the park for uninterrupted viewing. What were you missing in your breakfast box? Was it with too few options? or additional feedback on this will be appreciated. "Asante sana & karibu tena"...

If you like elephants, you don't even have to leave Tarangire Safari Lodge to see them. Guards are placed along the paths to the rooms so you won't get run over by elephants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built on top of a high bluff with a breathtaking panorama, our lodge is superbly located in Tarangire National Park, providing one of the best views in Africa. Carving out the landscape below the lodge is the Tarangire River, a favourite watering place, which attracts impressive numbers and a variety of game. The scene unfolds before you while lounging on the outdoor patio, allowing you to appreciate Tarangire's diverse wildlife. At the heart of the lodge are the impressively high thatched roofs of the lounge and dining room. The open-sided design allows an uninterrupted view of the landscape and wildlife below, and captures the cooling breeze while you dine on our delicious home cooked safari cuisine. The lounge area has oversized armchairs made from old dhow boats, which make a perfect place to relax. Those wanting something a bit more active can take a dip in the pool, a bird walk around the lodge grounds or hunt for souvenirs in the Baobab boutique. Our twin tents combine the authentic safari atmosphere of 'nights under canvas', with more modern comforts of electric light and en suite bathrooms with solar hot water. We also have bungalows that provide the space and convenience of solid walls yet blend into their surroundings by using local stone and echoing the traditional round Maasai huts. Tarangire Safari Lodge offers morning & evening bush walks along the river, Night Drives and Game Drives and don't miss a massage with a view at "Patulivu"! "Karibuni" or Welcome! ... more   less
