Experience the wilds of the little-visited Tarangire National Park with a stay in this intimate tented camp, perched on a ridge with far-reaching views over the acacia-dotted plains of the park.

Lemala Mpingo Ridge Lodge
  • A sleek, minimalist camp with a beautifully pared-back decor and an enviable setting along a ridge that affords far-reaching views over the valley and the plains

  • The 15 tented suites boast a private bath on the deck, a dreamy spot for a post-game drive dip without leaving the picturesque scenery

  • Meals can be enjoyed inside or out, the lounge and bar offer a sociable hub and campfire sundowners are not to be missed

  • For younger guests, the Lemala Cubs programme is a superb introduction to life in the bush, offering a chance to walk with a Maasai, throw a spear or track animals

This remote safari camp has just 15 tented suites dotted across a ridge in the Tarangire National Park, each enjoying expansive views over the plains and a cooling breeze that takes the edge off the heat of the day. Minimalist in their design, with an interior that seems to take its cue from the pared-back lines and calming colour schemes of Scandinavian design, the suites and communal areas are a step away from the more traditional camps, while offering the ubiquitous safari experience.

The 15 tented suites sit away from each other, sprinkled between the baobab and acacia trees that dot the escarpment, offering a degree of privacy with breathtaking views over the valley. Vaulted ceilings, a muted colour scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows create an airy, light interior that’s dominated by a large four-poster bed draped in delicate nets. Light wooden furniture and rattan lampshades create a calming sanctuary, while the outside is equally tranquil with an outside bath sitting on the private decking.

Offering a sociable hub, the main lodge is a stylishly designed collection of cosy sofas, a convivial bar and a dining area that flows from inside to outside, while a swimming pool and spa add an extra layer of indulgence.

From guided morning walks to game drives in specially modified vehicles and sundowners around the campfire, time spent at Lemala Mpingo Ridge Lodge is varied, exhilarating and never fails to engage, capture and surprise. Elephants thundering across the plains, a leopard slinking from tree to tree; Tarangire National Park is home to many of Tanzania’s most iconic inhabitants and the lodge’s expert guides bring this landscape to life.
