Sanctuary Swala

Tarangire National Park

Sanctuary Swala is located in a secluded part of Tarangire National Park, this one of the most exciting and least visited parks in Tanzania. The Park is famous for its large herds of Elephant that come together under the ancient baobab trees. There is an abundance of Zebra, Waterbuck, Giraffe, Kudu and the spiral horned Oryx.

Predators in Tarangire include Lion, Leopard, Hyena and Wild Dogs. With over 550 different species of birds in the park your afternoons are sure to be fun filled. Yellow Collared Lovebirds are a common sighting along the banks of the Tarangire River. Buffalo, Cheetah and Eland are also resident in the park while Brown Hyena are a little harder to spot.


Sanctuary Swala has been designed around the very best eco-friendly standards and offers 12 luxurious tents that are open-plan and spacious. All the tents are shaded by acacia trees and within site of a waterhole that is often visited by Elephants and big cats. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. The interior is a spacious open plan arrangement with comfortable king or twin beds, chairs and plush sofas. A hair dryer, ceiling fan, in room safe, mosquito nets and private deck are  available in all tents. Each tent has a personal butler to attend to guests’ every need.

The main dining area, deck and library are elevated around an enormous and ancient baobab tree. Electricity supply is a combination of silent packed generator and battery system allowing 24-hour power supply.
