Tarangire National Park, Tanzania
Situated in the high plains of Tanzania, we believe Lemala Mpingo Ridge offers not only an indulgent yet off-the-grid stay, but also the best possible views overlooking Tarangire National Park, river and valley. With a 20-minute drive from Kuro Airstrip you will enjoy superb game viewing from the moment you arrive.
Boasting 14 secluded two-bed lodges, along with one two-bedroom lodge for families or larger parties, we are confident that everyone visiting Lemala Mpingo Ridge will be taken aback by its stunning simplicity. With a neutral colours and all-wooden furnishings, the nature outside seamlessly oozes inside too.
We love these lodges with their plush super-king beds and well-appointed en-suite bathrooms, as well as a private veranda fit with sunken seating and a free-standing bathtub which allows you to make the most of the phenomenal views and wildlife residing on your doorstep.
Despite being perched atop one of the less visited of Tanzania’s national parks, Lemala Mpingo Ridge still offers a feast for the eyes thanks to Tarangire’s untouched serenity and abundance of wildlife. We are certain you will be particularly amazed by the herds of elephants that pass through, with up to 300 searching for water in the dry season (June to October).
With an open-plan lounge and bar along with an assortment of differing indoor and outdoor dining options, you will find yourself spoilt for choice over which stunning view to make your own. For something a little more intimate, you can also enjoy bush-breakfasts and lantern-lit dinners.
To complete your safari experience and fully immerse yourself in Tanangire, we recommend embarking on game drives and walks. The charming guides at Lemala will be delighted to share their expert knowledge with you.
