Top 3 Camps in Tarangire National Park

Elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions are the highlight of Tarangire National Park, the sixth largest national park in Tanzania. This is one of the most requested destinations for safaris in the Northern Circuit.

Let’s have a look at the unique and amazing luxury accommodation that we can help you to book here.

Tarangire Treetops

Tarangire Treetops by Elewana Collection

Tarangire Treetops sits on the border of the Tarangire National Park – Tanzania. Centered about a Main Lodge – which itself encases a thousand year-old baobab tree – it comprises of 20 rooms all of which are elevated above the ground affording views over the tops of surrounding marula and baobab trees. Each Treetops Room boasts one of the largest bedrooms to be found in any camp or lodge in East Africa, all with an exotic double shower en suite bathroom. As you arrive at the Lodge, you are immediately greeted by a blaze of colour and a host of smiles all of which belong to the local Maasai tribesmen who have become part of the enchanting story that is Tarangire Treetops.


Asilia Oliver’s Camp

Oliver’s Camp – in the remote southern reaches of Tarangire National Park – has just 10 beautifully appointed safari tents in a spectacular location close to the game-dense Silale Swamps and overlooking a flood plain of the Minyonyo Pools. Oliver’s was inspired by the trailblazing camps that pioneered the early days of safari. It gives you direct access to the dense concentration of wildlife you will find year-round in this remote region, as well as the chance to enjoy walking safaris and fly camping. Oliver’s is intimate and personal, staffed by a world-class team that has worked together for many years to perfect a safari experience that guests consistently rank among their best.


Ecoscience Science Center & Luxury Lodge

The Ecoscience property is situated on the North-Eastern border of Tarangire National Park, 20 km South of the village of Makuyuni. At the Northern edge we built our luxurious boutique lodge and our science center. Ecoscience is set in a very fragile savannah environment, The lodge is designed by Spanish architect Maria Rodriguez-Carreño Villangomez. The architecture of luxury rooms and restaurant is based on the Maasai hut, in an original, modern and minimalistic version. There are only 6 large rooms of 60 sq.m each with a 30 sq.m terrace. Each room has a double bed, couch, wardrobe, office desk, and an en-suite bathroom. From every bed there is a spectacular view of Radilen hill, at the opposite side of the valley.

Rubondo Island. Unspoiled forest and a luxury tree house…

Rubondo Island National Park is one of the most beautiful “secret places” of Tanzania; located along the South-West corner of Lake Victoria, it is the ultimate unspoiled destination – almost untouched by humans.

This island became a protected area during the 60s, and later it has been appointed as National Park in 1977 with the idea to build a sanctuary for animals. Next to the native fauna, in fact, different species have been introduced during the years: chimpanzees, elephant, giraffe and black & white colobus.

All these animals started to share the lush forest that covers this area with native species such as vervet monkeys, hippos and more than 300 endemic birds.

There are not many places like Rubondo in the World. We recommend a trip not only to bird watchers but also to all the people who are looking for a place where nature is still dominant and the passage of humans is invisible.


Accommodation here needs to be arranged in a special way as well, respectful of the nature of the place and in harmony with the environment. We suggest to stay at Rubondo Island Camp, an amazing eco-friendly camp managed by Asilia (www.asiliaafrica.com).

Small, intimate, completely set within the wild nature in the forest of Rubondo: all the tents have fine furniture, and the luxury is well combined with the idea of an eco-sensitive camp. The management offers a wide range of activities: tailored forest walk, trekking, ‘catch and release’ fishing, canoe trip and game view.

Aside, the camp also offers an original accommodation for people who want to try a unique experience: a tree-top room. The romantic tree house is completely delved in the forest. The room is finely decorated, and includes double bed, en-suite toilet, access to hot water and mobile solar lamp (electricity does not get so far away!). From the room – which is an open structure with mosquito net all around – you can enjoy a breathtaking 180° view on the forest and the Victoria Lake.

This is the ultimate magic place, which offers you a real lifetime experience. You will feel as closed as possible to the nature, but at the same time surrounded by the top quality service of all Asilia Camps… don’t miss it!
