About the Property

Tarangire Simba Lodge, located near Tarangire National Park's Sangaiwe Gate, offers a stunning safari experience in a wildlife-rich region with unobstructed views of Lake Burunge. This lodge, opened in 2015, features sixteen classic thatched tents and is home to diverse wildlife, including lions, zebras, and a profusion of bird species. By creating a buffer between the park and nearby village areas, the lodge plays a crucial role in conservation and minimizing human-wildlife conflict. During the dry season, guests have the opportunity to observe elephants, giraffes, and other animals at a waterhole near the lodge, and easy access to the park enhances the safari experience.

Dinner is a four-course buffet, with vegetarian soup, salad, two main courses (rotating between fish, beef, pork, lamb, and chicken), along with rice, potatoes, and fresh steamed vegetables. Special dietary needs such as gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options can be accommodated with prior notice. Afternoon tea offers a variety of beverages and cakes or cookies. Meal times are well-scheduled, providing guests with flexibility and a variety of dining choices throughout the day.

Getting There



Tarangire Simba Lodge offers accommodation in sixteen classic canvas safari tents permanently situated under thatched roofs. These spacious tents feature wooden floors, en-suite dressing rooms, toilets, and showers. There are twin and queen tents, and triples are possible, including a family tent with two queen-sized beds. Each tent boasts a private veranda with views of the surrounding bush and Lake Burunge. Furnishings are handcrafted from African hardwood, and the lodge is powered by solar electricity, ensuring hot water and full amenities. Guests might even have the chance to spot wildlife from their room or veranda. The lodge provides torches, umbrellas, and a secure safe, but due to the solar electrical system's limitations, guests are encouraged to bring a headlamp for better reading at night. Hair dryers cannot be used at the lodge, and CPAP machines are only accommodated if they run on battery power and guests are familiar with their operation. Advanced notice is required for CPAP machine users.
