“Unique camp experience”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

To add to the already amazing fact that you are in Tanzania and seeing incredible animals, is a stay at this camp/resort. The main building is built around a Baobob tree that is home to a colony of bats that keeps the camp bug free and you will greatly appreciate that! At night it is fascinating to watch them dart around. The staff is extremely attentive and go above and beyond to meet any request. From the moment you arrive and are given scented, moist towels to wipe off the road dust and fresh juice to quench your thirst, you will love hanging out in the lounge area. The views are incredible and as you gaze out over the deck with the infinity pool, you'll be able to see wild animals drinking at a watering hole or just roaming by. Then, you'll be escorted to your tent in a tree and your jaw will drop at what is considered a tent. Spacious and more like a 5 star hotel room and nothing like a tent with the exception that the walls are canvas and zip open. Sitting areas, desks, decks with rocking chairs, robes, toiletries, comfortable beds, outlets, and other wonderful touches. The food is gourmet and delicous and made by talented chefs. The waitstaff attentive and friendly. When told it was my daughter's 8th birthday, they went above and beyond to help her celebrate and it became the most special birthday ever. I would make this camp a definite on my tour every time I would be lucky enough to visit the country.

My family and I had a wonderful safari over the holidays in Tanzania, and Tarangire Treetops was one of our favorite lodges. Ryan and Lauren are truly great hosts, and the team they have assembled cater to guests with first class service. The access to the Tarangire Park is good, and the road in to Treetops is a lovely part of the overall Tanzanian safari adventure. We have many good memories of our Treetops experience and can't wait to return.

You can read all the nice reviews here, they are pretty accurate. The service was exceptional. The room was very nice, although one sink fawcet was loose and the shower was not draining properly, a bit disconcerting. But overall very clean and the setting is exceptional. Food was very very good.

Room Tip: All unique and beautiful

Treetops consists of 20 very large rooms, and a very large common area... Ryan the manager runs the place with precision clockwork, delivering the same jokes in the orientation briefing for each guest (whistle if you want champagne, if you smell smoke in the morning we're not trying to burn you down).

The rooms do a fantastic job of balancing necessities (24 hour electricity, hot water), without going over the top (no tv, no minibars, no phones and no internet in the rooms).

Dinner is served at various locations throughout the property, including a BBQ around a campfire on one night.

One downside as repeatedly mentioned by the other reviews, is that this property is not actually in Tarangire Park. It's about 25km over some very bumpy dirt roads - a drive that can take well over an hour. This means that rather than doing 2 game drives per day, you go out once per day and pack a picnic lunch... it also means that from from the time we landed in Kilimanjaro to the time we got to the camp, about 6 or 7 hours had elapsed.
