Set against a backdrop of ancient baobabs, Tarangire Ndovu Camp is a comfortable mobile camp in the wilds of Tanzania’s Tarangire region.
Accommodations consist of eight to ten mobile tented suites in either single, double, triple, or family configurations. There is even a honeymoon option. The sturdy and cool canvas tents feature a large bedroom with a desk and chair, a storage chest, and wardrobe. The comfortable beds have soft cotton sheets and warm duvets. Accessed through a separate door, each tent includes an en suite bathroom with ceramic sinks, a vanity mirror, a bucket shower, and a toilet. The tents are decorated in neutral tones to blend into the natural environment. A private patio area includes a table and chair for relaxing outside and taking in stunning landscape of Tarangire.
The camp is located in the heart of Tarangire in the lesser visited but more intriguing park on the northern circuit of Tanzania covering about 1,100 square miles. The area is famous for its large herds of elephants and high density of baobab trees. During the dry months, the elephants travel between Manyara and Tarangire in search of fresh water sources including the Tarangire River. Other common animals here include waterbuck, giraffe, dik dik, impala, eland, Grant’s gazelle, vervet monkey, banded mongoose, and olive baboon. Predators in Tarangire include African lion, leopard, cheetah, caracal, honey badger, and African wild dog. Giant termite mounds can be found all over the park as well some are even inhabited by dwarf mongoose.
