Lake Burunge Tented Lodge

This lodge offers a good, value for money, place to stay while you explore Tarangire National Park. After a hard day of sightseeing, return to this welcoming camp and enjoy good food, friendly service and a comfy bed. 

Spend the days out on game drives in Tarangire, the entrance to the park is just 20 minutes away. From here it is also possible to visit a nearby Maasai village and learn about their culture and their everyday life on the borders of the national park. The Tarangire River flows into Lake Burunge and from July to November an influx of flamigos provides a different backdrop.

Return to camp after a day of exploration. Enjoy convivial chat at the bar or sink into a sofa in the comfy lounge. The main raised deck which leads off the lounge and bar area, offers sweeping views of Lake Burunge. Watch the sunset from here or from your own private balcony as you soak up your surroundings.


Times to Go

Tarangire is at its peak in the dry months, particularly July to mid-November. This is when the herds of elephants pass through. That said, there is good game viewing year round so Tarangire seldom disappoints.

Lake Burunge Tented Lodge rooms


The lodge has 20 tents, each one built on a raised deck and 10 bungalows. Each tent has been built on a raised platform with a terrace that affords guests a view of Lake Burunge and beyond. On a clear day you can even see Mount Meru.

The tents are topped with a thatch roof to help keep out the heat of the day, there’s a fan to circulate the air too. They are stylish with wooden floors, four poster beds adorned with mozzie nets and an en-suite bathroom. Your own private terrace is the perfect spot for a bit of peace and quiet between game drives, as you sit and admire the views.

There are larger tents and inter-connecting tents for families.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“Tanganyika Wilderness Camps, who own Lake Burunge Tented Camp, have a great charitable foundation which donates to some wonderful projects such as backing the education for Maasai girls, providing a rural clinic for Maasai in northern Tanzania , and building classrooms in Karatu, near Ngorongoro Crater.”

And don’t forget … for every booking we get, Tanzania Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of Africa through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
