One of Tanzania’s smaller National Parks, Tarangire remains a little lesser known. However with its strange baobab trees, huge termite mounts, large numbers of elephant and bright red soils it offers a very different experience to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. Guests will enjoy a real sense of wilderness as well as excellent gameviewing opportunities, whilst Tarangire itself is both a relaxing destination and a fantastic place to start a Tanzanian safari.
Accommodation consists of 15 spacious tented suites (including one 2-bedroom tent) positioned to take advantage of both the sensational views and cool breezes. Each ensuite tent features private decks and sunken outdoor lounges that convert to siesta beds, perfect to relax in in-between game drives. Guests can also enjoy a special feature – a private outdoor bathtub. The elevated main lodge has a large lounge and bar, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a spa and swimming pool. Activities include sundowners, early morning walks and game drives in state-of-the-art custom-designed vehicles accompanied by Lemala’s highly-knowledgeable and experienced guides.
