Elewana Tarangire Treetops

5

A luxury treetop safari lodge on the border of Tanzania’s acclaimed Tarangire National Park

Elewana Tarangire Treetops is a secluded lodge set at the border of Tarangire National Park – an area renowned for its baobab tree population and some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. This is a beautiful area of Tanzania, and your visit will be made even more memorable with a stay at this luxury lodge with its elevated treehouse suites set among the branches of ancient baobab and marula trees.

The food here is an inventive fusion of international and African bush cuisine. Dinner is served in either the open-plan dining area or on the outside decking, a beautiful spot that overlooks the infinity pool and busy watering hole beyond. For a more cultured evening, there is also an outdoor boma, where amid tree-strung lanterns and a glowing bonfire, you'll enjoy a delicious buffet and traditional showcase of Maasai song and dance.

All of the luxury suites are elevated on wooden stilts among the surrounding baobab trees. Open-fronted and extremely spacious, the suites combine locally crafted furnishings with authentic African décor to evoke a wild and rustic opulence to each room. We love the tree house façade, but the highlight has to be the private balconies that afford an incredible view across the Tarangire plains.
