Room types at Kuro Tarangire
Six light and stylish safari rooms are complete with comfortable beds, en-suite bucket shower and flushing loo.They rest amongst the trees with views over the African bush and although they are extremely comfortable and beautiful, they never detract from the main event, which is out there.
One family unit at Kuro Tarangire is made up of two full size en suite rooms, connected by a canvas corridor that zips closed at night. Ideal for families with younger children to have access to mum and dad after dark, without the need to head outside.
Activities at Kuro Tarangire
Game drives in 4WD vehicles
Game drives are a fantastic way to see Tarangire. This park is second only to the Serengeti in its concentration of wildlife and is well known for big herds of buffalo, elephant that stand picturesquely beneath the spreading branches of baobabs and prides of lazy lion sprawled in the shade of acacia scrub. The muted colours of Africa are frequently lit up by the bright reds and yellows of barbets, starlings and bee-eaters; there are over 550 species of birds here. Sometimes we'll take advantage of our freedom to venture out at night for this is when elusive creatures also choose to softly tread the trails. Few things are more exhilarating than catching a glimpse of the patterned flank of a leopard as it slinks through the grass beside our car.
Night game drive
After dark the bush changes and you have a chance to meet some of our nocturnal neighbours. Genets, civets, porcupines and bush babies are often seen, and if you're lucky you might even catch the big chaps out on a hunt as lions and leopards head off on the prowl.
You will wake in the cool of the early morning and walk straight out of camp to discover evidence of the night's activities along the course of the Tarangire River. There's something very special about placing one's own foot within the print of an elephant, or kneeling to cradle the nest of a praying mantis, glistening with dew. It's the sort of rare freedom that we seldom enjoy in our busy lives.
