Overview of Tarangire River Camp

Enjoy a classic safari at Tarangire River Camp. This luxurious tented camp, set in a 25 000ha concession overlooking the Tarangire River, is only 3.5km from the main entrance to Tarangire National Park which means you are able to go on fantastic game drives and bird watching trips in Tarangire as well as at nearby Lake Manyara. And since the camp is located on the outskirts of the park, you are also permitted to do activities that are not allowed in Tanzania’s northern parks such as guided walking safaris and night drives. Other activities include visits to local Maasai and Datoga villages.

Back at the camp, you’ll get some more game viewing from the comfort of the elevated wooden deck or you can choose to warm up beside the fire. The raised viewing deck, dining room and lounge all blend seamlessly with the outdoors, adding to your safari experience.
