Experience & Activities  

Set within a 25,000-hectare concession area, Mbali Mbali Tarangire River Camp is located 3.5 km from the main entrance of the Tarangire National Park, overlooking a branch of the Tarangire River itself.

Traditional grass thatching adorns the roof of the main lodge structure, which is set off the ground on an elevated deck. The breezy lounge boasts ample seating in a relaxing open-air environment. The dining area, where culturally-inspiring meals are served, consists of simple safari-style seating and the elevated position allows for excellent views over the riverbank below. The dining and lounge areas are married into a proper bonfire area and game viewing deck that overlook the same stunning views.

Guests can proceed on a full day game drive of either Tarangire or Manyara National Park. The property is in a great location for game viewing since it is only 3.5km from the main entrance to Tarangire National Park. The lodge’s small, informal gift shop offers the families of the nearby Maasai villages a chance to sell some of their handmade wares.


The Luxury Safari Tent is build around an ancient Baobab tree overlooking the Tarangire River. It has a king size extra length bed with a comfortable mattress. There’s an indoor bathroom with toilet, shower and basin. The outdoor deck boasts an amazing outdoor shower and bath, enhancing the romantic setting of this tent.

Safari Tent: All safari tents are equipped with private verandahs and en-suite bathrooms with toilet, shower and basin. Each safari tent has been built on an elevated wooden platform, allowing for the movement of wildlife through the lodge and hence decreasing the interference of the lodge presence on the ecosystem. Thatched roofs keep the tents cool even at midday. The tents offer a combination of twin or double bed room configurations.

Family Tent: The family tents are built with a little more room for parents traveling with their children. It is delightful to have everyone together sharing the experiences of their safari adventures. Two of the family tents have been configured to accommodate a family of four with a king bed and two single beds. The other two family tents have been configured to accommodate a family of five with a king bed and three single beds. Each tent has its own private verandah area and indoor bathroom with toilet, shower and basin.
