Fodor's Expert Review Tandala Camp
Ruaha National Park, Iringa, Tanzania
Because Tandala is in a private conservancy 5 km (3 miles) outside the entrance gate, guests can take early morning game walks and game drives, engage in bird-viewing, or experience authentic cultural visits to the Maasai bomas, local village, and market. There are no frills here, but it's comfortable, and you stay in an en suite tent that's built on a raised wooden platform that overlooks a seasonal river. There's an attractive restaurant and bar area beside the swimming pool. A nearby waterhole attracts game at all times, particularly during the dry season, although elephants are hanging around most of the time.
- great views from your tent's raised deck
- elephants often frequent the nearby waterhole
- children of all ages welcome
- very bumpy road to the Ruaha park entrance (10 minutes)
- outside of the main park
- rustic and simple tents
