Tarangire Tortilis Camp – What to Expect

Tarangire Tortilis Camp – What to Expect

Perennial River

Along with our Lake Manyara Tortilis Camp, Tarangire Tortilis Camp is the closest of our camps at just 120km from Arusha. The perfect place to start your introduction to the riches of Northern Tanzania.

Whether you’ve flown into Arusha or to Kilimanjaro International Airport, it’s a smooth, straight, paved road all the way to the Tarangire turn off, a short dust road through a local village to the gate of the Tarangire National Park, and a quick break getting acquainted with the local troop of vervet monkeys on hand to welcome you into the park, while your guide takes care of the paperwork with the rangers.

The road from the Main gate to our camp is an hour-long direct 52km route, much of which runs parallel to the perennial Tarangire River and will immediately introduce you to the many elephants and giraffe in the area.


There’s so much to do in the Tarangire National Park and our Tarangire Tortilis Camp is situated perfectly to make the most of the many activities.
