Mr. John Cottingham

"Safari Lodge tents very comfortable in a lovely position overlooking the valley with a wonderful view. Food good,staff friendly and helpful, deserves 2 or 3 nights stay,also has swimming pool which looked great for relaxation time. Would definitely stay here again."

E Warren
"We loved this place! The view was great, the food was great, and the staff were nice too. The park itself was wonderful too. Elephants in the field right behind our camp! We had asked for a bungalow but got a tent."
Chris Adams
"Good comfortable accommodation but allowance has to be made for power cuts and low water pressure. "
Ilana Howley
"Compared to all of the other places where the service and friendliness seemed 100% warm and genuine, Tarangire didn't have that same atmosphere. The food was also not quite as good a standard at Tarangire comparitively. However, the location of the Tarangire Lodge is just stunning so we were definitely pleased to stay there."
Kathy Talbot
"As advertised - lodge with an awesome view and it was with a big terrace overlooking the park and lovely spacious tented accommodation. Food was OK and the swimming pool was lovely and a welcome relief from the heat."
