Tarangire Tortilis Camp

Tarangire Tortilis Camp

Just 120km from Arusha, our Tarangire Tortilis Camp is the perfect place for an introduction to the riches of Northern Tanzania. 

This spacious camp, built in-between a line of 4 magnificent Baobab trees looks onto a vast expanse of wetlands. Elephants appear as ships sailing through the long grass watched from the warmth of our fire pit area while you enjoy a drink and watch the sunset.

The Tarangire River is a life-giving spine for this National Park and attracts herds of over 1000 elephants, tremendous numbers of giraffe, and flows all year round – teaming with life for you to enjoy on a game drive right on the riverbanks.

Walking tours with a National Parks ranger and your driver-guide is a tantalizing experience where you can encounter the largest elephants to the tiniest of insects. The ranger and guide will share deep insight into the details and sensations that are so unique to experience on foot. It’s incredible to think that such an exciting tented Tortilis Camp exists so close to Arusha, the perfect place to start or finish an itinerary of Tortilis Camp stays

Our Tortilis Tents

Our tents are always a surprise to our visitors who feel more like they are in a comfortable lodge than in a simple tent. We’ve put a lot of thought and creativity into the layout and interior design, as well as the decoration, materials, fabrics and items that each of our tents are created from. The result is a unique East African, spacious and comfortable space to feel welcome in for the duration of your Tortilis Experience.

Our tents are built to easily withstand the elements. Thick canvas protects against rain, and a system of adjustable tent flaps over mesh windows surround the tent. The tent flaps are easily adjusted to allow maximum airflow in the day. Our staff know just when to open and close the flaps and will do this for you to keep your tent in an optimal condition to the current weather conditions and time of day.

One of the reasons our tents are always in such good condition is because of our system of constant maintenance by our own staff. We build the tents from scratch in our own Tortilis Camps HQ in Arusha with staff skilled in joinery, metalworking, sewing, design and construction. This way we are able to keep the tent spaces constantly developing and functioning to meet our visitors needs for the most comfortable stay in Northern Tanzania. All of the Tortilis Camps work off the same blueprint, which contributes to the smooth running of the systems to make our tents a pleasure to stay in.

Meals

Our Breakfast

Breakfasts are worth getting up for and are enjoyed from the mess tent as the buzzing world comes alive around you. The sumptuous array available for breakfast includes colorful platters of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, cold meats and cheese platters with crackers and biscuits, croissants, cakes, pastries, toast and spreads. Coffee and teas of the world are of course an essential to compliment the first meal of the day and then to really get the best start to the morning, order your favorite choice of eggs or omelettes from the chef. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges of your whole stay at Tortilis Camps is to pull yourself away from the glorious breakfast every morning!

Our Packed Lunch

Packed lunch served to you by the Tortilis driver guides at the perfect location in the bush will be just the unique meal you may have imagined it to be. You’ll be amazed at the setup we can quickly create in the middle of the bush, sitting in a comfortable chair at a table laden with nuts, fruit, cheese, crackers as hors d’oeuvre followed by creatively prepared main meals and salads from our chefs. These meals include some extra tasty spices and vivacious Tanzanian infusions. Lunch back at the Tortilis Camps are also an option every day if you are not away on a game drive or activity.

Our Dinner

All our visitors should try the Tortilis Camps bush dinner at least once. An incredibly free-spirited way to enjoy a meal under the sparkling stars with a loved one and all the ingredients to create a memory to cherish.

Dining in the mess tent is a social affair with a wide variety of tasty, creative and uncomplicated yet stimulating meals. Hot meals with local specialities, along with pastas, fish, chicken, vegetable bakes, and salads are all available. And lastly, our much-complimented chefs enjoy rounding off your days dining with desserts to make you smile.

We recognize the wide variety of visitors culinary wants and needs and also provide a more niche solution to your meal requirements.

Safety

Locking Away Valuables

We have very few safety concerns at the Tortilis Camps due to implementing measures from our experience to prevent incidents. When you arrive you can lock away valuables in a box with a strong padlock provided in every tent. We’ve designed this for you to be able to lock away a whole bag, a large camera lens or other large items. You will then be able to keep the key for the padlock for your own use when needed.

Walking Around Camp

It is safe to walk around the camp during the day, however, it is an unfenced area so visitors need to still be vigilant. At night, we have escorts available constantly to walk you from your tent to the mess tent. Our Maasai staff carry out this function and are able to walk with you anytime you feel the need for some local assurance. All the paths are lit when it gets dark and each tent has a powerful torch for your own use.

Tent Security

Tents have two robust front flaps with large zips top to bottom. These zippers need to be shut, at least one during the day and both at night when not using the entrance to the tent. The flaps do not have and do not need locks, and staff will also make sure the flaps are kept zipped closed.
