Lake Burunge Tented Camp, Tarangire National Park, Tanzania
Tarangire is one of the hidden gems of the Tanzania safari circuit, with spectacular wildlife but relatively little development, ensuring a unique wilderness experience
Your Tarangire Safari in Tanzania Experience
- Concentration of game in the dry season
- Migration of a number of species into the area
- Some of the best birding in Tanzania
- On a private concession in Maasai land
Lake Burunge Tented Camp is situated only ten minutes away from Tarangire National Park on a concession area run by the local Maasai community. This allows freedom of movement and a choice of activities. Game drives in the park provide a wildlife experience not rivalled by many places.
Located on the shores of Lake Burunge, this excellent small camp has easy access to Tarangire as well as activities in and around Lake Burunge and nearby Maasai villages. The luxury tents are located in a bushland grove which has beautiful views onto Lake Burunge. The area can be explored on game drives, walks along the lakes edge, canoeing on the lake and cultural interaction with the Maasai who live in the area.
The Tarangire River empties into Lake Burunge, a shallow soda lake just adjacent to the park's western boundary. Lake Burunge is home to flocks of flamingos from July to November. The lake is picturesque with the Great Rift Valley's western escarpment as a background. The lake is very saline but during the rains the water is fresh and serves as a watering place for animals, including elephants and lions.
