If you are looking for an authentic safari experience under traditional canvas Tarangire River Camp is the perfect choice. Tarangire River Camp is set within 25,000 hectares of concession area. The Tarangire River branches onto this concession area and the camp has been built to overlook the river. The property is in a great location for game viewing since it is only 3.5 kilometres from the main entrance for Tarangire National Park.
Accommodation consists of spacious tents built on wooden platforms with a thatched roof, all of which have en-suite bathrooms and are tastefully furnished. Each of the tents is generously proportioned with their own private veranda opening out onto a stunning view of Mt Meru and Mt Kilimajaro. Several tents offer views of the river.
Traditional grass thatching adorns the roof of the main lodge structure, which is set off the ground on an elevated deck. The breezy lounge boasts ample seating and the elevated position allows for excellent views over the riverbank below.
Both the dining and lounge areas are married into a proper bon-fire area and game viewing deck that also overlooks the same stunning views. A smaller secondary game viewing deck rises above the ceiling and offers a high, intimate perch above it all. The lodge’s small informal gift shop offers the families of the nearby Maasai villages a chance to sell some of their handmade wares.
Located just 3.5 kilometres from the main entrance into Tarangire National Park. It is 120 kilometres from Arusha which is approximately a 2 hour drive.
