Tarangire River Camp
Tarangire River Camp is set within 25000 hectares of concession area. The camp overlooks a branch of the Tarangire River, included on the land. The property is in a great location for game viewing since it is only 3.5 km from the main entrance to Tarangire National Park.
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 in a relaxed open-air environment. The dining area, where culturally inspired meals are served, consists of simple safari-style seating and the elevated position allows for excellent views over the riverbank below.
A bonfire area and game viewing deck connects the dining and lounge areas, and overlooks the same stunning views. A smaller, secondary game viewing deck rises above the ceiling and offers a high, intimate perch. The lodge’s small, informal gift shop offers the families of the nearby Maasai villages a chance to sell their handmade wares.
The advantage of being located outside the park is that the various activities not permitted within any of Tanzania’s northern National Parks, are possible including guided walking safaris. Other activities include game drives, bird watching on the shores of Lake Manyara, and cultural safaris visiting the Maasai and Datoga people whose bomas populate the adjacent land.
