We loved the staff, very helpful! The accommodations were very comfortable and nice. We stayed for one night, but we enjoyed the warmed swimming pool and the dinner. The staff sung to the guest and afterwards they wrote it down the lyrics to us and the song became part of our trip. Excellent!

We stayed here for our last night on safari and loved it! We were able to hike out to the lake with our guide and a guard. Thousands of flamingos everywhere and zebras grazing nearby. The resort had a gorgeous infinity pools that felt great at the end of a hot day. Food was great and the staff were fabulous!

Had a great time here at the start of our safari. Room was big, but lighting not so good. It was in between tented camping and a lodge. The food was excellent and the service great. On day sitting outside and relaxing zebras come strolling right past us. Beautiful sunsets and views of the lake..

We slept here two nights in a comfortable permanent tent on stilts with a large veranda that offers views of Lake Burunge. It is nice to sit there and look at the birds, mongooses, and dikdiks that move around below your cabin. The bed is comfortable, but make sure your mosquito net is wrapped tightly around your mattress. Staff is...

Arrived here after a long day travelling and a Game Drive at Tarangire National Park. The welcome was warm but it is difficult to concentrate as your eyes are drawn out across the deck to the most wonderful view of the Lake and thousands upon thousands of Flamingo. We were shown to our 'tent'. Which isn't a tent at all...

The "tents" are in fact partially wood and cement frames covered by a tent but with a wooden door and at the back a shower sink and toilet area all plumbed in on a wooden platform. The camp is full of animals and there is a view of the lake with flamingos from the restaurant area. There is also a...

just outside Tarangire, with views on lake Burunge (and the flocks of pink flamingos!). amazing infinity pool, great food... and the rooms/tents are absolutely fantastic. waking up with such a view is a delight (even if the wandering warthogs scare you with their noise in the bushes during the night!) thank you!

A very beautiful camp located on lake Burunge in tarangire national park. The tents were very nicely furnished, comfortable bed, hot shower and wonderful views from the veranda of the lake. The staff and manager were very kind and attentive, and great food. Great game drive with lots of wildlife. This was near the end of our trip and proved...
