Sanctuary Swala Camp is found it the heart of Maasai country in a remote corner of the Tarangire National Park. In total seclusion surrounded by fantastic wildlife and a picturesque landscape complete with baobab and acacia trees one comes across what is most probably the most luxurious camp in the Tarangire.
One does not have to venture far for wildlife sightings as the water hole in front of the lodge offers a constant stream of game including elephants and a few of the big cats.
Sanctuary Swala offers visitors a luxurious and exclusive safari experience far far away from the crowds of the Serengeti.
Twelve luxurious canvas tented suites under the shade of the surrounding acacia trees are found at Swala. The tented suites with their own private verandahs all look out over the water hole that is frequented by wildlife day-in and day-out.
A particular high-lite of the camp is those en-suite bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers.
All suites are private in nature and position far enough apart that one has the sense of being alone in the bush.
If you are after the ultimate in safari dining in the Tarangire National Park then Sanctuary Swala Camp is the destination for you. The camp is famed a dessert aptly named the "Chocolate Kilimanjaro".

The main dining area, deck and library are lifted on stilts around an enormous and ancient baobab tree. A to-die-for infinity swimming pool overlooking the water hole frequented by game is there to escape the heat of the day.
