Tarangire Treetops

Overview

Bird's-eye views

On the path of an annual elephant migration, Elewana’s Tarangire Treetops sits alone in an enormous community wildlife area bordering Tarangire National Park.

20 elevated treehouses are perched high amid a landscape of rolling hills studded with baobab and marula trees. Each is expansive with a private balcony, en suite bathrooms and fabulous views.

As the hub of the lodge, the tranquil dining room and lounge encase an impressive baobab tree overlooking the swimming pool and a waterhole that sees a steady flow of wild animal visitors.
