Welcome to Tarangire Simba Lodge, the newest addition to our portfolio. Tarangire National Park is a gem on the northern safari circuit. Teeming with wildlife, especially in the dry season, this area is a safari-goers dream. Located near the new Sangaiwe Gate of Tarangire National Park. Tarangire Simba Lodge is situated in a wildlife-rich area with unhampered views to beautiful Lake Burunge, bordered by the park and a Wildlife Management Area. The setting is stunning; with a giant old Baobab tree anchoring one corner and a permeating feeling of real Africa.

The lodge opened in mid 2015 (July) and has sixteen classic tents under thatch. Resident wildlife includes lion, zebra, bushbuck, impala, porcupine, monkeys, warthog, mongoose and more. Elephant, buffalo, ostrich and giraffe frequently pass through while the bird life is prolific and vibrant.

Areas surrounding national parks are critical for conservation. The location of Tarangire Simba Lodge creates a buffer between the park and the nearby village areas, which, although currently sparse in population, are under cultivation and could be subject to human/wildlife conflict. We work closely with the rangers at the nearby station to ensure that the wildlife is not compromised.

During the dry season groups of elephant, giraffe, waterbuck, zebra and more come to a small waterhole located in front of the lodge. Lucky guests can watch wildlife right from their rooms or the elevated viewing platform near the pool.

Guests are able to enter, exit and re-enter from the Sangaiwe gate of Tarangire National Park with ease.

“The rooms are fantastic - and huge! Really impeccable, with very well thought out details like the international adaptors and flashlights.”

“This lodge is as good as it looks on the pictures... What you don't see is the kindness of the people and the views are even more impressive than they look on the pictures. Tarangire is one of the most beautiful NP's of Tanzania and a night at Simba Lodge makes it all complete.”

“They knew we were on our honeymoon and put us in the most private tent. The "tent" is very large with a deck and large bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. We had 2 great dinners and great breakfast and lunch. All of the staff were super friendly and very accommodating. The pool was also very refreshing after a day out driving.”

“The staff was great at pulling together the impromptu box lunch, the best we had on our ten day trip.”

Please Take Note: Our lodge is not suitable for guests with ambulatory issues or in wheelchairs; there is no wheelchair access. Children over age six are most welcome at the lodge and must be under parent’s supervision at all times. Children under the age of thirteen must share a room with an adult (17 or older).
