Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge
Tented Rooms
Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge is located in the heart of Tarangire National Park, Tanzania’s wild land of elephant herds and landscapes. At Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge, there 12 permanent tents providing an intimate experience in the wild.

The camp is open all year around and especially during the dry months, the massive elephant herds travel through the corridor between Manyara and Tarangire and spend their time in and around the park. This is because of their ability to uncover permanent sources of fresh water. We endeavour to retain the uniqueness and intimacy of the camp, while being directed by the location, wildlife and other factors of responsible tourism.

Each tent is framed with wooden logs, metal piping and then wrapped in heavy duty safari rip-stop canvas made locally at Morogoro, southern Tanzania, plus the additional cooling feature of shade-clothing over the entire tent. You are met at the entrance by climbing specially crafted stairs and onto a balcony with love seat and side table for relaxing when you have a moment.

The front of the tents have double sliding doors, including a layer of mosquito netting for your comfort. Once you step into the tent and the bedroom area, you will see an arrangement of unique furniture like a desk and chair, bench seat, side tables, matting and incredible local imagery. Once you walk through the bedroom and into the ensuite, the polished concrete floors with wardrobe, robes, separate shower and toilet cubicles and handcrafted washstand with carefully created terracotta basins. All the fittings depict colours in natural tones to adhere to the intrinsic area we are located.
