Set against a backdrop of ancient baobabs, Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge offers comfortable lodgings and exciting activities in the wilds of Tanzania’s Tarangire region.
Accommodations consist of twelve permanent tents made up of nine standard suites, one honeymoon suite with an outdoor shower, and two two-bedroom family suites set on raised platforms. The sturdy and cool canvas tents feature a large bedroom with a desk and chair, a wardrobe, and double sliding doors. The comfortable beds have soft cotton sheets and warm duvets. Accessed through a separate door, each tent includes an en suite bathroom with handcrafted terracotta sinks, a vanity mirror, a shower, and a toilet. The tents are decorated in neutral tones to blend into the natural environment. A private patio area includes a love-seat and table for relaxing outside and taking in stunning landscape of Tarangire.
The lodge 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.
