Ellie says, "Tarangire Safari Lodge holds a special place in my heart as the first place I stayed on my first safari over 20 years ago -  the view quite simply took my breath away and continues to do so every time I revisit this favorite of mine. It may not be as luxurious as some other camps in Tarangire but it offers simple accomodation at a very reasonable rate and very few high end camps can offer the views from your simple tent verandah that this lodge does."

Ndovu Camp - Tarangire National Park

Seasonal/Mobile open June 1st to Oct 31st

***

Tarangire Ndovu Camp is a simple yet comfortable seasonal camp of the mobile tented style. With 8 guest tents located centrally in the park it is a great option for a low/mid range budget during the peak months June - Oct. During these dry season months is when the park teems with wildlife particularly elephant.

Authentic camping feel with bucket showers, mess tent and campfire it offers a more intimate feel than Tarangire Safari Lodge (similar cost-wise) but doesn't have the spectacular view of the lodge....

 

Number of tents: 8

Style : Mobile Tented

 

Activities: game drives, camp-fires & star-gazing.

 

Ellie says, "Ndovu Camp is perfect for those on a budget who are looking for the smaller camp feel."

Tarangire Treetops 

***/*

Centered about a Main Lodge - which itself encases a thousand year-old baobab tree - Tarangire Treetops comprises of 20 rooms all of which are elevated above the ground, each built around an ernomous tree and affording views over the tops of surrounding marula and baobab trees 

Each large bedroom boasts an exotic double shower en suite bathroom. With furnishings that create warmth and demonstrate a commitment to local craftsmanship, the ‘up-in-the-air’ experience is completed by the open-fronted room design affording views across the Tarangire plains from an expansive but private balcony.

A wonderful place from which to explore Tarangire and then enjoy a lantern-lit dinner in a traditional Boma echoing to the sounds of Maasai chants, or eating poolside by candlelight whilst a wealth of wildlife comes to drink at the Lodge water hole

 

Number of rooms: 20

Style : Treehouse

Extra Amenities: pool

 

Activities: game drives, walking, night game drives, cultural visits, sunset rocks sundowners.

 

Ellie says, "A very unique camp just outside the park which enjoys regular visits from the elephant -                      it's a real experience to sleep in the arms of these ancient beings."

 

Recommended for families and tree-lovers.

Oliver's Camp - Tarangire National Park

****

Tucked away in the remote southern reaches of Tarangire National Park – Oliver's has just 10 beautifully appointed safari tents in a spectacular location close to the game-dense Silale Swamps and overlooking a flood plain of the Minyonyo Pools. Oliver’s was inspired by the trailblazing camps that pioneered the early days of safari. It is a wonderful location for game drives well as offering walking safaris, fly camping and night game drives. The en-suite safari tents epitomise bush elegance in a spectacular setting: red leather armchairs match the ochre soils beyond the canvas walls, and headboards are hand-carved from African mahogany. All suites come complete with flushing toilets and spacious outdoor showers, and each private veranda has magnificent views of the horizon punctuated by the silhouettes of the ever-present baobab trees. In the main area, deep leather sofas invite you to relax and watch the restless wilderness beyond. Come nightfall, meals are taken communally in the dining room. Whiskies are poured around the campfire and safari tales told late into the night.

 

Number of tents: 10

Family Tent: 1

Style : Bushcamp

 

 

Activities: game drives, walking, night game drives, fly camping

 

Ellie says, "Quintessential bush luxury; Oliver's camp is renowned in the business as a top-class camp                    and never fails to deliver a wonderful safari experience"

Kuro Camp - Tarangire National Park

****/*

Kuro Tarangire is set amid a grove of Acacia and Kigelia trees on the banks of the Tarangire River. The area sees the rhythmic movement of wildlife as it traverses the park from the hills in the west to the swamps on the eastern side.

Conscious of wanting to experience this place in a way that harmonises with the natural tempo, without overpowering it, Nomad has created a camp with a light footprint. The six light and stylish safari tents are complete with comfortable beds, en-suite bucket shower and flushing eco-toilet. The family tent has two en-suite bedrooms and an adjoining sitting area. They rest amongst the trees with views over the African bush. Guests gather to share meals and relax under the cool grass thatch of the open-sided lounge and dining area which is furnished with hides and canvas, brought to life with a touch of colourful and tactile textiles.

 

 

Number of Tents: 6

Style : Under Canvas

 

Activities: game drives, walking, nightgame drives

 

Ellie says, " One of my very favorites for its intimate size and total immersion and harmony with the                       natural world surrounding it. Nomad's attention to detail never fails to create a haven of                        peace and tanquility -  a very special corner of a very special park."

 

Recommended for purists and eco-warriors.
