Maramboi Tented Camp
Location: Outside Tarangire National Park
Style: Luxury Tented Lodge
Maramboi Tented Camp offers permanent camp facilities and endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and palm lined desert between Tarangire and Manyara Lake.
A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins of Mankind and an explanation of the Rift Valley and Africa's big picture. It is a complete semi-desert experience focusing on safari walks and game drives in an area extraordinarily rich in wildlife.
Accommodation consists of 20 spacious tents built on ample wooden decks, and 10 lodge rooms ideal for families.
They are all furnished with large beds and mosquito nets, with en suite facilities, 24 hour electricity, and private verandas from which you have a splendid view over the Rift Valley and Manyara Lake.
A lounge area and small library invite you to relax or curl up with a good book.
All meals are provided in the mess tent located in the centre of the camp, and pre-dinner appetizers, snacks and dinner are served under the breathtaking starlit sky.
The camp offers views of the Manyara National Park, Rift Valley, Ngorongoro highlands and on clear days even Oldonyo Lengai, a sacred mountain to the Masai.
In the wet season, the Manyara and Tarangire Pans fill with water which attracts huge flocks of
flamingos and other wading birds.
Migration herds of tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra, followed by predators, are clearly visible due to the exposed nature of the surrounding grassland.
Activities include: bush sundowner (The Sunset Celebration or 'Happy Hour'), game drives, guided walking safaris, bird watching on the shores of the not too distant Lake Manyara and cultural interaction with Datoga and Masai tribes, whose bomas populate the adjacent land.
Cell phone and internet facilities are available at reception.
