- Tarangire National Park
A Diverse Range of Accommodation
With such an emphasis on the dry season experience, Tarangire lodges are naturally located overlooking or near well-frequented water sources such as rivers, waterholes and permanent wetlands. From the end of May to October, animals gather in increasing concentrations at these water points, resulting in highly diverse and rewarding safari activities.
Most Tarangire lodges are located within the national park itself. Others have a private reserve setting adjacent to the park, offering drives in both the reserve and Tarangire. Morning and afternoon game drives are the main focus but Tarangire lodges are able to offer other activities such as spot-lit night drives, guided walks, fly-camping adventures away from camp, and even hot-air ballooning. Several are in a position to offer their guests an insight into local community life through guided tours to local villages and community programmes.
Tarangire lodges tend to be smaller and less luxurious than their counterparts in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, usually no more than 10 tented or timber and thatch suites. They are however very comfortable and all our recommended lodges offer accommodation with a private bathroom and some of our more luxurious lodges include personal butler service.
Accommodation is generally located in the more remote parts of the national park. Well away from other lodges, this means more exclusive game sightings compared to the more popular reserves of the northern safari circuit. No wonder then that several Tarangire lodges are among our top recommendations for honeymooners and romantic travel as well as safari travellers looking for an off-the-beaten path destination. Other lodges in Tarangire welcome families with children and even have special children’s activities as well as family-friendly accommodation. We do however advise that Tarangire is not suitable for younger children.
