Tanzania

Swala

PLAN MY TRIP

Sanctuary Swala nestles among massive acacia trees, providing panoramic views of Tarangire National Park and its impressive wildlife.

Accommodations consist of twelve luxurious and spacious canvas tents. These open plan tents sit under the shade of acacia trees and come with a king bed or two twin beds, luxurious furnishings, campaign chairs, and plush sofas. An en-suite bathroom features both indoor and outdoor showers. For added privacy, an expansive veranda overlooks the waterhole making it the perfect place to enjoy sundowners or a private dinner. A personal attendant is always on call to assist in any way needed. Additional amenities include a hair dryer, ceiling fan, in room safe, and mosquito nets.

The camp is ideally situated in Tarangire National Park whose low volume of visitors ensures that guests of Swala enjoy a unique and private safari experience. Tarangire is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania occupying 1,096 square miles southwest of Arusha. The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees, tree climbing lions, resident zebra, and wildebeest. Plus, the park is a bird-watchers heaven with over 550 species. The swamps are concentrated with the largest selection of breeding birds anywhere in the world and great place to see the yellow-collared lovebirds. A place of widely diverse landscape and vegetation, it encompasses hills dotted with baobabs, dense bush, and high grasses. This varied landscape is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape.

Twice daily game drives are conducted in open safari vehicles driven by experienced guides and allow for clear views and excellent photos. Walking safaris take a closer look at the local flora and fauna. Night drives, also known as moonlight safaris, are offered for an additional fee. With specialized lighting, visitors can view a variety of nocturnal animals such as African wildcat, bush baby, hyena, spotted genet, serval, bat-eared fox, and owl. Bush breakfasts, picnics, and dinners are unique ways to enjoy meals while on safari. Cultural visits to Gijedabung Primary School and the Mwika Beekeeping Project are a great way to learn about the community projects that Sanctuary Swala supports.

Sanctuary Swala leaves a minimal carbon footprint due to its adherence to the highest eco-friendly standards. Structures are supported by stilts and covered with traditional thatch. The main camp features a dining area, deck with picturesque views, library, lounge, and stunning infinity pool overlooking a busy waterhole. The waterhole hosts regular visitors including lions, leopards, and elephants.
