Tarangire River Camp - The camp for safaris & cultural experiences in Tarangire

Cost Per Night
Perfect For

Families & Couples

Tarangire River Camp is the perfect camp for adventurers who want an authentic safari and cultural experiences in Tanzania.

Stay in traditional canvas thatch roof tents, have wonderful vistas of baobab plains, and feel close to the action with a riverside position.

The camp is set in a 25,000-hectare concession area and is just 3.5 km from the main entrance of the Tarangire National Park, so every guest has amazing access to an area with the greatest concentration of wildlife outside of the Serengeti.

Tarangire River Camp overlooks a branch of the Tarangire River, which attracts fascinating animal behaviour all year round. Watch elephants digging into the riverbed in the dry season, spot predators and antelope making close encounters, and watch numerous birds dot the baobab dense landscape. 

Stay in one of just 20 elegant safari tents which are all on an elevated wooden platform, which are built to encourage wildlife to move through the landscape undisturbed.

There are a number of different sized tents perfect for both couples and families, and guests can enjoy comfortable facilities of an en-suite bathroom and private veranda.
