Tamarind Camp is a safari camp located 52 miles (1 hour) from Arusha, just 15 minutes from the entrance to Tarangire National Park. Perfectly positioned in a grove of beautiful Acacia Tortilis trees and recently completely renewed, the camp is set in 200 acres of Acacia woodland and bush, which is constantly evolving into an ever more stunning setting, right
on the boundary of the Park. Tarangire is the fourth biggest National Park in Tanzania and its very diverse habitats, supporting an equally rich variety of mammals, birds and flora, make it a delight to explore.
Magnificent 1000-year-old giant Baobab trees punctuate the Park and large herds of elephant and other game seasonally swell the large numbers of resident game.

The tented accommodation is luxuriously comfortable and spacious with en-suite bathrooms and exquisite handcrafted hardwood furnishings. The tents are extremely well spread out and mostly face the adjacent Park boundary, marked only by a tree-lined “sand river”.  Zebra and wildebeest are often to
be seen grazing on the nearby plains and elephant and lion frequent the area around camp, as well as being regular visitors inside the camp itself!
