After a long day exploring the park we were happy to find our tent to be better than expected. The tent was very clean, the shower was large with hot water and the porch was great to sit on in the morning and watch the world around you come to life. The lodge is surrounded by the animals as they...

The spender is largely the property itself.. Charming raised tented cabins, where animals roam through the site at night and all walks between cabins and or the dinning hall / front desk area... ALL must be accompanied by a Maasi with a light and shotgun. They are ready and "Johnny on the spot" ready when you need them. They're not...

We didn’t actually stay in the tented camp rooms however I felt it was appropriate to provide this feedback. My wife and I were on a self-drive 4WD camping trip around northern Tanzania, and tiring of the usual poor value, facility-less national park camp sites, we decided to camp out in the camp ground at the Roika tented lodge. Even...

This is a very nice and well run tented lodge just outside Tarangire National Park. The manager and all the staff are very very kind and do all their best to ensure guests are comfortable and their needs satisfied. Meals are abundant and very good quality I would certainly go back

The manager of this property was justifiably proud of it and anxious that we had a nice time. We received a very warm greeting having travelled for several bone-jarring hours to get there. It's like a little oasis in the middle of the bush. The "tents" were extremely comfortable with great bathrooms and a lovely balcony. We were a family...

The first tented camp of our safari was a wonderfuly good surprise as their website does not do justice to this nicely decorated place. We had such a warm welcome that we felt at home right away ! The tents are very confortable with incredible facilities considering where we are (there's even a kettle with all you need to make...

We spent two nights at this lodge and liked it a lot. The tents were big and someone had been in a creative mood when designing this place. Our tent was themed 'monkey' and so the mirror, chair and bedposts featured monkeys. We also had a really cool shower with water coming out of a snake. We received chocolates on...

We stayed at the Roika Tarangire Tented Lodge during our recent visit to Tarangire. Three years ago, we stayed at the Tarangire River Camp which we liked more than Roika. The staff at Roika was really wonderful ... very friendly and the service was really great. The manager takes a lot of pride in the lodge. As far as it...

We have stayed at many places in Tanzania but this is by far the worst. - torn bed sheets - dirty pillows - Mosquito nets with holes and holes in tent fabric - horrible food at the lodge - no wifi. No water pressure. Limited hot water EVEN during the short 2 hour periods they run the generator. Avoid.

Really enjoyed this lodge, the food was excellent. Service was very attentive. Greeted at the reception with juice and friendly smile. Rooms were roomy and well equipped. Would recommend to anyone looking for a tent experience in the bush.

“If you are worried about animals at night, ask to be sited in a tent near the dining rooms. But there are guards around to escort you and we always felt perfectly safe.”

“If you're concerned about security from wild animals a tent closer to the dining area is recommended and if you want to live in the bushes, tents in the corners will match that experience.”
