Escape to this beautiful camping site for a luxury getaway on a unique safari park in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania. There are six safari tents at this glamping site that are completely unique. The large and spacious tents provide shelter from the elements without detracting from the beauty of the natural bush setting. The tents are well furnished with locally crafted pale wood furniture and there is a hot safari-style bucket shower under the stars. The showers are en suite but are all outdoors and they also feature a flush loo. One of the tents is the family tent which has two adjoining en suite bedrooms.
This glamping site is where guests go when their soul seeks the humbling solitude of giant baobabs, the exhilaration of encountering Africa's big cats or great herds of elephant; where the focus is on experiencing nature and not the gold taps, and where travelers can feel at home while simultaneously enjoying the care of a dedicated team.
The campsite has a charm and simplicity that highlights the surrounding landscape rather than detracts from it. Falling asleep under canvas to the calls of leopard, and waking in the dappled light of the sun as it peers through the bush is simply magic.
There are many amenities at this unique glamping site that ensure guests have the most comfortable and luxurious getaway possible. There are 24-hour security and battery charging facilities so glampers will be able to recharge their electronics to capture each beautiful moment and sight they see.
There is a communal dining area for glampers to enjoy delicious meals, as well as a complimentary laundry service. Guests can use the on-site library.

The game viewing at and around this glamping site is some of the best in the world, and Tanzania’s coastline and islands have some of the world's most beautiful beaches too. Here, glampers can seamlessly combine an authentic, wild safari adventure with a deserted Indian Ocean beach holiday, a match made in heaven.
Tanzania is well-developed in terms of activities and experiences, so why not add in a hot air balloon trip, a night fly-camping in the bush, a spot of pristine reef diving or an alfresco dinner in the middle of the Serengeti?
Africa and Tanzania specifically, is a land best explored on foot; with its stunning landscapes and great guides, getting out and about on foot awakens the senses and brings glampers closer to the action. There is a myriad of choices for walking to all the best safari places; whether just a brief excursion or over a period of days, Tanzania provides a variety of landscapes and wildlife for all to be amazed at.
Good riding safaris are something to treasure; for those who are comfortable in a saddle and experienced enough to manage a few hours in the bush, this site offers some brilliant safari experiences for all, in addition, there are shorter rides in other beautiful locations around the site for those less confident riders.
Much of the joy of travel is the experience of other cultures and traditions. Take the time to know and understand the local heritage of Tanzania. Cultural tourism is a tricky thing to accomplish well, but if it is done well it is incredibly worthwhile. The opportunity to interact on a personal level with Tanzanian's will enhance glampers' experience to no end.
To the northeast, glampers will find notable mountains and volcanoes including the biggest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro, as well as Mount Meru. Moving further west over part of the Rift Valley (Gregory Rift) is the Ngorongoro Crater. To the west of the Crater Highlands lies the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, home to the annual migration of millions of wildebeest.
Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika lie on two of Tanzania’s borders, whilst inland at the center of Tanzania is a large plateau where glampers will find one of the favorite wildlife areas, Selous National Park. To the east is the coast and Tanzania’s transport hub, Dar es Salaam, a gateway to the Zanzibar Archipelago in all its spiced glory.
The allure of Zanzibar often overshadows Tanzania's stunning mainland coast and other islands, leaving them beautifully uncrowded for travelers in the know. The beaches here are fabulous, generally deserted and offer good value for money. There is not much to do in many cases, but for those who would simply like to just relax and recharge in a glorious natural setting, a stay here at the beginning or end of a glamping trip is ideal.
