Tarangire Conservation Area is a 57 000 acre wildlife management area, adjacent to the Tarangire National Park and straddling a major wildlife migration route. The local Maasai communities earn direct revenue from the clients visiting the area as well as from an annual lease fee for community development such as the building of schools and dispensaries, grading of roads and erection of water pumps. In exchange, the communities limit farming and grazing and stop all poaching and de-forestation ensuring the habitat is protected.
Tarangire Treetops is an innovative and stunningly original property consisting of twenty raised luxury chalets built amongst a cluster of baobab and mopani trees. These tree houses face out onto the Tarangire Sand River with views of the Rift Valley and Lake Manyara to the east and the distinctive form of Mount Kilimanjaro to the west. Each unit has a private veranda and lounge area with en suite facilities to ensure guests comfort. It is the décor, however, that is the most ingenious feature of the lodge - a rich and creative blend of Tanzanian fabrics, Maasai craftsmanship and Swahili opulence to create a very seductive and very African, ambience.
During your stay, enjoy game drives into the Tarangire National Park, one of Tanzania's smaller parks, situated not far from the southern tip of Lake Manyara. The park is inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife, especially large herds of elephant, which come in from the neighbouring areas to drink. Cultural tours to villages within the community can be arranged and mountain bikes are available for the more energetic.
