Experience & Activities  

Sanctuary Swala is located in a secluded area of Tarangire National Park, one of the most exciting and least visited parks in the country. In the heart of Maasai country, in total seclusion amongst giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savannah, Sanctuary Swala offers a very exclusive safari experience. The picturesque landscape is filled with ancient baobab trees, ambling elephants and birds in flight. Built to the highest eco-friendly standards, this camp has a particularly low-carbon footprint.

Drives out from Sanctuary Swala reward you with exciting wildlife encounters, while herds of elephant, and prides of lions all roam within sight and earshot of the camp. The low volume of visitors to the park offers a truly unique and private experience. Fly in a hot air balloon and gaze down upon towering baobab trees and spot leopards and herds of elephants from the sky.

Put on your walking shoes and experience beautiful Tarangire National Park from a different perspective with a walking safari at Sanctuary Swala. With a professional walking guide and armed ranger, guests can now explore the grassland around camp in one of the most secluded areas of the park. You can also experience the wonders of a safari at night in Tarangire and search for nocturnal animals rarely seen.


Canvas Pavilion: Twelve luxurious canvas pavilions, all shaded by acacia trees and all with views over the waterhole and plains in front of camp, feature indoor and outdoor bush-view showers.
