Great boat trip at Taranga

We were the only guest at the lodge so it felt sometimes a bit inconvenient with all staff working for you. Staff was really nice and polite and did their utmost to give us a great feeling. Special thanks for the surprise at our tent for our anniversary and my husbands birthday (champagne)

Boat trip was really nice and esp as the local people are also at the river, fishing, washing, kids having fun. so more than wild life. saw lots of birding.

small tip;
- Welcome by the receptionist; she was very friendly, summarized all important details of the lodge, then brought us outside on the you do (guest experience) and had no authenticity.

Taranga Safari Lodge review

Nice tents but the whole experience was rather underwhelming.

Staff seemed lacking confidence, there was little flexibility and the ordered lunch bags never appeared.

Sundown cruise on the river was very good with lots of kingfishers (Giant, Pied and others) to see and with expert commentary

lodge with great river view

The welcome and accommodation at Taranga was excellent. They also very kindly gave us free bubbly as it was my birthday.
Sadly however the food was poor.

Stunning location

We were here for Christmas day, perhaps more could have been made of it as we were all far from our families but that aside it was a beautiful setting, we loved the boat moored below the lodge for a sundowner.

The staff were friendly & helpful. We felt quite safe in very substantial tents & the view & deck was spectacular.

The meals were fine but only enough was cooked for the guests present - we were told we could have one chop each for example! No seconds!!

Taranga Safari Lodge review

Taranga is described as "stylish" but in our opinion style has triumphed over function. Our tented room was big but totally impractical,with no storage space & a curiously located WC.

The small grounds were rather boring, apart from the river front,with no animal life & very badly signposted.We took a river trip which was quite interesting but not exceptional.

It is hard to see how it can be described as a "Safari Lodge"

Small bird viewing was good, but we would not stay there again - not even as an over-night stay.
