Sanctuary Swala Camp is located in a secluded area of Tarangire National Park, famous for its large herds of elephants and spectacular baobab trees.
Accommodation is in 12 canvas pavilions that surround the main dining area, deck and library and are raised above ground on stilts around an ancient baobab tree. Each of the luxurious tents is within sight of the well-frequented water hole which regularly draws lions, leopards and resident bull elephants for which Sanctuary Swala is famed. The tents feature a spacious open plan arrangement with comfortable king or twin beds, campaign chairs and plush sofas, as well as en suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor shower. Each tent has its own personal attendant who will attend to guests' every need.
The river is the park's lifeline and attracts much of the game to its banks. Guests may also find some of the many leopard that rest by day in the shady trees. The park is also home to kudu with their immense spiral horns, and oryx with their equally lengthy rapier horns. These shy, show-stopping antelope are common in Tarangire, where Sanctuary's expert driver-guides can get visitors close to the herds without disturbing them. The low volume of visitors to the park offers a truly unique and private experience, and the customised open safari vehicles offer unobstructed viewing and great photography opportunities.
Guests can also experience Tarangire National Park from a different perspective with a walking safari. With a professional walking guide and armed ranger, guests can now explore some of the most secluded areas of the park on foot.
