Tarangire Treetops

Tarangire Treetops is located just outside the Tarangire National Park, just on
the north-eastern boundary.  Tarangire is in Northern Tanzania and famous
for its amazing Baobab tree population and elephant migration.  The lodge is
a two hour drive from the Manyara airstrip or an hour from the Kuro airstrip
which is in Tarangire itself.  But this drive is part of your Tanzania safari!
The main lodge is extremely impressive!  Built around an old Baobab
tree, the open plan living area is spacious and extremely welcoming.  The
structure is almost entirely built out of wood and raised slightly above the
ground.  There is a central living area building in the flooring and below
the ground level, with pillows and sofas to relax in.  There is a fancy bar
and dining area that look out to the pool which face the park.  Being raised
and built on a natural rise in the earth, you get good views. The rooms are
equally as impressive.  These are raised quite high with access up a spiral
staircase through a trap door.  They are very large with open plan bathrooms,
massive beds and panoramic views out over the park. Each has a private
balcony with chairs and a table.
Oliver’s Camp
Oliver’s Camp is our favourite camp in the Tarangire National Park.  It is a
lovely, friendly, rustic camp in probably the best game viewing area in the
park.  It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re interested in a real, authentic safari
experience.  Providing that you go between July and November, this camp
offers one of the best experiences on the northern circuit.
Oliver’s has the park’s best location by far.  It is situated about 30 minutes
away from Kuro Airstrip.  The camp overlooks the flood plains, popular
amongst the park’s huge number of elephant.  It really is remote, making it
a great base from which to explore the untouched southern section of the
Tarangire. The tents blend seamlessly into the surrounding vegetation, and
are decorated with the elegant splendour that becomes a traditional Tarangire
safari camp.  The location gives a feeling of exclusivity that is not so common
on the northern circuit.
 
The main area is full of interesting paper-backs on the surrounding region and
its wildlife.  A few well worn, deep, leather sofas provide a great place to sit
down, have a gin and tonic and soak in your surroundings. Two particular
activities of note at Oliver’s are the walking safaris and the night drives.  The
guides are always very experienced and the night drives come equipped with
a night vision scope that really makes for a mind blowing experience.
