Accommodations at Tarangire and surrounding area

Tarangire Sopa Lodge

has been recently refurbished and achieved a certain freshness of style, with new sliding glass doors and fresh paint bringing a certain glamorous appeal to the heart of the sunbronzed bush. The makuti-style thatched roof over the reception and dining room is quite awe-inspiringly high and great, and creates a sense of safari grandeur. The Sopa is well positioned at the centre of Tarangire, with excellent safari opportunities in every direction

Tamerind tented lodge

A Luxury Tented Camping in the bush just beyond the actual boundaries of the park approached though fertile fields farmed by surrounding villagers, and sits snug in a clearing surrounded by dense bush. Each tent has its own shower and loo, and comfortable, sturdy wooden beds beneath the ample canvas awning. All tents face onto a centralised ‘bar’ tent, and the impressive dining tent containing a long communal table that is sumptuously arrayed each night with remarkable culinary delights prepared by the camp chefs.

Olivers Camp

is a small tented camp just outside the boundaries of the park, in its own wilderness. It is a tough drive home, being situated way down in the western reaches, but has an authentic hard-nosed real bush appeal. The entire camp is tented, with a dining tent, laundry tent, kitchen tent, etc, with each spread out among the rocks and trees. As such the camp does not have much of a central focus, and is perhaps better suited to the determinedly anti-social. Vast and ancient boulders nearby provide a good vantage point for sunset watchers, and attract admirably agile rock climbing klipspringer antelope, which are impressively small and quick.

Tarangire Treetops

is an exciting new safari camp in the Tarangire Conservation Area, providing superbly unusual accommodation in comfortable, wooden-thatched treehouses around ancient old Baobab and Mopani trees. The central dining area provides a comfortable and sociable centre to gather after safaris and before disappearing off into your tree, and a selection of cultural and wildlife reference books are available for perusal in the thatched open-air library. Special interest groups can arrange for cultural and environmental specialists to come and give talks.
