Randilen Wildlife Management Area
Border of Tarangire National Park
Lying directly in the path of an ancient Elephant migration route, Tarangire Treetops is alone in this 31 000 hectare private wildlife area. In a landscape of rolling hills dotted with Baobab and Marula trees’ each elevated treehouse suite has fantastic views and a very unique and adventurous atmosphere.
The main lodge surrounds a thousand year old Baobab tree on a wooden deck that extends to an open lounge and dining area. On a lower deck level is a swimming pool with sun loungers, views over the bush and fantastic birding. Most of the areas, including the fire pit, are all covered by thatch roofs and overlook a waterhole that is hugely popular with Elephants.
At the rear of the lodge is an outside dining area that has been designed in the style of a traditional Masai Manyatta (village) where dinners are often held under the stars.
All of the 20 tree-houses are built in or around a tree, be it Marula or Baobab and are raised several meters off the ground to give great views over the bush. Some of them are higher than others and some even have branches growing through the rooms so ask our advice for the best fit for you.
The deck of each surrounds the treehouse and provides beautiful views of the sunrise or sunset depending on which room you are in. As there is no specific family room, all the treehouses can accommodate up to three people.
The en-suite bathroom has twin vanity basins and twin showers that have been finished with excellent quality fittings.
