You won't find a more stunning setting for a camp than right in the middle of Tarangire National Park, a stone's throw from the banks of the Tarangire River. This unique spot is the opportune place for watching wildlife strolling leisurely from the hills in the west to the swamps in the east whilst sipping sundowners on the veranda of your tent. Here huge herds of elephant are drawn to the water during the dry season and the camp offers wonderful walking safaris as well as game and night drives in open 4WD vehicles.

Location & Directions

Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

When to go

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
