Sanctuary Swala is located in an exceptionally secluded and private area of Tarangire National Park, offering visitors a luxurious and very exclusive safari experience.
Tarangire is famed for its large concentrations of elephant and spectacular baobabs of every shape and colour. The river is the Park's lifeline and attracts much of the game to its banks. The Park is also home to large herds of zebra and wildebeest, and kudu with their immense spiral horns. The shy oryx can also be found here, and the expert driver-guides can get visitors close to the herds without disturbing them. Other wildlife include giraffe, lion and cheetah, and if you are lucky, you may find one of the many leopards that rest by day in the shady trees.
Picnic lunches can be arranged so you can enjoy a full day drive in the Park, or you can choose to return to the camp for a delicious lunch served on the deck overlooking the well-frequented water hole which regularly attracts lions, antelope and elephants. Night drive safaris can also be arranged.
Twelve tents surround the main dining area, deck and library which are lifted on stilts around an enormous and ancient baobab tree. There is also a small infinity swimming pool.
Each of the luxurious canvas tents are shaded by tall acacia trees and all have views of the water hole. The tents are exquisitely furnished with traditional materials, and feature a spacious open plan arrangement with comfortable king or twin beds, campaign chairs and plush sofas, as well as an en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor shower. Each tent also has its own personal attendant who will attend to your every need.
