Elewana Tarangire Treetops promises an exclusive safari experience, thanks to its quiet setting in a private conservancy bordering Tarangire National Park, a safari destination often neglected in favor of the better-known Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. In drier months months, Tarangire National Park is flooded with a myriad of game, including up to 3000 elephant – the game viewing, away from the crowds, is fantastic. The area is known for its iconic baobab trees, of ecological significance to the local wildlife and traditional significance to the Masai people.

Recognizing the value of time well spent with family and friends, the Elewana Collection introduces discerning travelers to East Africa through impeccably designed lodges that invite true relaxation, as well as the thrill of a real adventure. Complementing their locations in prime game-viewing areas, on quiet white-sand beaches or even in a coffee plantation, are lavish comforts, including fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms and gourmet meals. Family-friendly, individually styled and exuding warm and personalized hospitality, the lodges are a savvy blend of high-class safari and low-impact tourism. Guests are encouraged to become part of the local community and conservation projects, thereby returning home with a piece of East Africa instilled in their hearts forever.

Accommodations

There are 20 elevated Treetop rooms at the lodge, each constructed of natural materials and embellished with local décor. Each room has a private bathroom and a large private deck for prime views across Tarangire’s magical landscape. Up here, amidst the baobab and marula trees, guests experience a sublime luxury treehouse all to themselves – each faces the sunset or sunrise, or the camp’s watering hole and animal trail.

Amenities

Home to up to 3,000 elephants, this is a prime location for glimpsing these gentle giants.
