North-east outskirts of Tarangire
Permanent tented lodge
Stay in boutique hotel luxury in huge thatched treehouses set amongst baobab and wild fig trees; relax in the infinity pool while watching elephants at the watering hole; and go on night drives to spot leopards and other nocturnal animals. If you have the budget, Tarangire Treetops has the fabulousness!
Tarangire Treetops is the perfect place if you are looking for a unique retreat to celebrate a special occasion – it’s a fabulous camp if you have the budget. The elevated principal areas are constructed around an imposing 1000-year old baobab tree and the bedrooms are fantastic – you sleep in the poshest treehouse imaginable! It’s like being a very, very lucky child …
The wildlife is particularly good, especially during the dry months (July to mid-November) and the area is noted for its elephants as there is an abundance of baobab trees, one of their favourites. There is an elephant watering hole in the camp, so you can watch these charismatic pachyderms close-up from the luxury of the swimming pool or while reclining with a drink.
The standard of guiding at Treetops is very good and, as it’s in a private concession, you are permitted to go on game walks as well as night game drives, when you can see the wild world come to life in a whole new way after dark as nocturnal predators such as leopard wake up and go on the hunt. The area is also very good for birding.
Times to Go
Tarangire Treetops is fabulous for game drives during the dry months particularly July to mid-November, when great herds of elephants pass by en-route to the Sand River. But it’s actually really good for game viewing all year round, and, since you can go on night safaris as well, you get to see the wildlife in a whole new (lack of) light.

Tarangire Treetops rooms
The 20 treehouses are huge, covering a space of 65sq metres.
All are either built around an existing tree or in some cases the tree forms part of the room, creating a perfect tree house living experience.
The bedrooms are lavishly yet stylishly furnished with enormous double beds with crisp white linen. The en-suite facilities include large double walk-in shower area.
The rooms are all open fronted, but fully mosquito-proofed, and have a large terrace with safari style table and chairs.
It is without doubt the perfect vantage point.
Twiga the giraffe likes this because…
“Camp owners, Elewana, have established the Land & Life Foundation to carry out conservation and community work in the wildlife and community areas surrounding Elewana’s properties. The nearby village close to Treetops has benefited from this camp – not least because it has enabled the building of a school and improved water facilities. And the camp has introduced reusable stainless steel water bottles to replace plastic bottles, and has a strict recycling system.”
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.
