Elewana Tarangire Treetops
Your very own treehouse in Tanzania draped with netting (and with a glam en-suite bathroom). A 312-square-kilometre private reserve filled with rolling hills, extravagantly shaped baobabs and marula trees, and beneath you, some roaming members of Africa's largest herds of elephants. If that's your idea of an African safari, then Tarangire Treetops has everything you need and more. You're on the doorstep of fabulous Tarangire National Park. Your safety is paramount, it's a malaria-free zone with temperate weather conditions, and the staff and food are terrific. You'll be back!

Only in Common Area
The main lodge, raised above the ground, is intriguingly built around a giant baobab tree. The ceilings are high; there's a sunken lounge with comfortable seating and a deck that overlooks the watering hole, the pool and the landscape beyond. Drink at the bar (try the cocktails) and enjoy fine meals in the dining room, entertained by local Masai singers. For your safety, you'll be escorted to and from your rooms. There are barbecue facilities, mobile connectivity and wi-fi.
Twenty spacious suites (each is 65 square metres) are elevated in the trees. Each is far, far more than a simple treehouse. Climb the circular staircase, and you'll find huge beds, hardwood floors, fans, comfortable seating, an exotic double-shower en-suite bathroom, a wide-open frontage and a private balcony oriented to enjoy views of the sunset sunrise or the waterhole. The furnishings are warm and welcoming, combining locally crafted pieces and European chic. A butler will attend to your needs.
Your game drive begins the minute you're in the car. Explore the private reserve on foot or safari vehicle by day or night, or take a daytime drive into the national park. The Tarangire River flows through the park, so wildlife flocks here during the dry season. When the rains come, the area becomes a lush swampland home to large populations of breeding birds. See the Big Five, go birdwatching and get close to all the game.
