At Roika Tarangire Tented Lodge, there is a refreshingly well-ventilated lounge area where you may relax and read a book, watch your favorite sport or catch up with the latest happenings on DSTV from our big flat screen TV.
In order to marvel at the eye-catching a sunset, there is a special viewpoint in the bush that is only a stone’s throw away from the lodge; right on the edge of Tarangire River. This experience is made whole by a photo session, a sip of wine, your choice of soft drinks or even beer; under the watchful eye of our armed Maasai guards.
This activity affords the participant an opportunity to get to see, hear about and have a feeling of things that can hardly be sampled in the course of game driving. Nature walks commence at six o’clock in the morning under the guidance of our knowledgeable and experienced Maasai guides.
On a calm day and depending on the period of the month, this is a pleasurable buffeting experience under a Baobab tree in the bush, or from inside our Maasai Boma in the warmth of a roaring African bonfire under a starlit sky. Here, you will come face to face with our professional chef and his team of qualified cooks in taste-bud-tickling international and local cuisines.
