Mbali Mbali Tarangire River Camp, set within 25,000 hectares of concession area, is just 3.5 km from the main entrance to Tarangire National Park. The camp overlooks the Tarangire River.
Tarangire is one of the most diverse and beautiful Parks in Tanzania. There is an abundance of big game here including lion, elephant, Black rhino and buffalo, as well as a vast bird and lesser game population. During the dry season, when the Tarangire River has shrunk to a mere shadow of its former self, the elephant dig deep into the damp earth of the riverbed in search of underground springs. Wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, and gazelle congregate with rarer species such as eland and oryx around each shrinking waterhole.
Traditional grass thatching adorns the roof of the main lodge structure, which is set off the ground on an elevated deck. The breezy lounge boasts ample seating in a relaxing open-air environment. The dining area, where culturally inspiring meals are served, consists of simple safari style seating and the elevated position allows for excellent views over the riverbank below.
Both the dining and lounge areas lead into a proper bonfire area and game viewing deck that also overlook the same stunning views. The small gift shop offers the families of the nearby Maasai villages a chance to sell some of their handmade wares.
Guests are accomodated in 14 safari tents, all of which have either a kingsize or twin beds, en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water as well as a private deck. There are also 5 family tents each sleeping 3, 4 or 5 people, and one Luxury Safari Tent with a deck with an amazing outdoor shower and bath, which enhances the romantic setting of this tent. All the tents are tastefully furnished with all the comforts you will need whilst on safari.
Friendly and attentive staff are also always on hand to cater to your every need.
