The dining area with its thatched roof and open sides provides a peaceful setting. Dinners are often moved to the traditional Boma with its roaring camp fire or around the swimming pool, lit by candles. Exotic bush breakfasts are also available.

Standard Room

Accommodation at Tarangire Treetops comprises 20 thatched treehouse suites which are built on platforms high amongst the branches of baobab, mopani and wild fig trees.

The entire room is enclosed in mosquito netting and the walls are, in fact, flaps, which can be rolled up to create a feeling of space and bring you in closer contact with the bush.

The furnishings blend natural materials with contemporary décor and each tree house has an en suite bathroom with a double shower. Your private balcony is a good place to relax, looking down on the world, and perhaps do a bit of game spotting.

Traveller Reviews

  • Tarangire Treetops – Our absolute favorite accommodation! Great staff! Spacious, comfortable rooms. Enjoyed evening dinners with Masai singing and dancing. We were glad to see that this lodge offered night time game drives as we really enjoyed the night games drives in South Africa and were surprised that they were not typically offered in Tanzania (We wished we would have known about this fact in advance – it may have influenced our lodge choices!)

  • The room was beyond fabulous and there was a small group of elephants right outside the veranda....perfect! We loved our space and enjoyed being on the balcony immensely.

  • We especially enjoyed Kichwa Tembo, Kusini, and Tarangire Treetops. The Serena at Ngorongoro Crater was quite nice.

"Tarangire Treetops is simply amazing. The rooms are elevated and mostly built around trees - like tree houses so you get the views onto the plains from your room! They offer an extensive children's prgramme, two bomas, a swimming pool and lovely sundowners on "Sundowner Hill" - overlooking the plains!"
