Camp Location

Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge is located in the heart of Tarangire, Tanzania’s wild land and landscapes. Tarangire is famed for its massive elephant herds, true sense of wilderness and a gentle backdrop of baobabs. It is the lesser visited but more intriguing park on the northern circuit.  At Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge, we have 12 permanent tents made up of ten standard suites,  and 2 x two bed room inter-connected family suites.

The camp is open all year around and especially during the dry months, the massive elephant herds travel through the corridor between Manyara and Tarangire and spend their time in and around the park. This is because of their ability to uncover permanent sources of fresh water. We endeavour to retain the uniqueness and intimacy of the camp, while being directed by the location, wildlife and other factors of responsible tourism.

Rooms

Each tent is 20m long by 8m wide and framed with wooden logs, metal piping and then wrapped in heavy duty safari rip-stop canvas made locally at Morogoro, southern Tanzania, plus the additional cooling feature of shade-clothing over the entire tent. You are met at the entrance by climbing specially crafted stairs and onto a balcony with love seat and side table for relaxing when you have a moment. The front of the tents has double sliding doors, including a layer of mosquito netting for your comfort. Once you step into the tent into the bedroom area, you will see an arrangement of unique furniture like a desk and chair, bench seat, side tables, matting and incredible local imagery.

On daytime game drives , you’re likely to see giraffe, zebra, lion, wildebeest, buffalo, baboon, impala and hyena, and plenty of birds. Other activities unique to the park are walking safaris with an armed guide, and a night-time game drive to see the nocturnal species going about their business. Children are welcome, although they have to be at least 12 years to join a walking safari. However, the Maasai guides are always on hand to teach kids various bushcraft skills..
