Situated just outside Tarangire National Park, this enchanting safari camp is a collection of houses built on stilts around age-old baobab trees. The 20 elevated guest bedrooms are all open-fronted in design affording views across the Tarangire plains, yet they are all remarkably private. Even up in the air, the ensuite bathrooms contain luxe double showers and the wide personal balconies come furnished with a pair or rocking chairs.
Wrapped around a thousand-year old baobab, the thatched main lodge offers plenty of comfortable seating and a small boutique, opening out onto an inviting swimming pool surrounded by shaded sun loungers. Picnic lunches are possible out in the national park, while dinners takes place in a fire-lit ‘boma’ or under a canopy of stars out in the bush.
Activities at Tarangire Treetops Camp include twice daily game drives, Maasai village tours, nature walks and night safaris. The Tarangire ecosystem is most famous for its enormous elephant herds and tree-climbing lions; however, zebra, olive baboon and giraffe are also common while the park harbours over 550 individual species of bird.
