      Swala Camp

      In the Home of Elephants and Leopards

      Swala Camp is located in a secluded area of Tarangire National Park, arguably northern Tanzania's most interesting park, famous for the large herds of elephants and spectacular baobab trees. Tarangire is famed for its large concentrations of elephant and spectacular baobabs of every shape and color. The river is the park’s lifeline and attracts much of the game to its banks. You may also find some of the many leopards 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 our customized open safari vehicles offer unobstructed viewing and great photography opportunities. Each of the twelve luxurious canvas pavilions is shaded by tall acacia trees and all are within sight of the well-frequented water hole which regularly draws lions, leopards and resident bull elephants for which 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 tents surround the main dining area, deck and library which are lifted on stilts around an enormous and ancient baobab tree. There is also a stunning infinity swimming pool overlooking the water hole. Enjoy thrilling game drives lead by highly qualified guides in open 4 x 4 game viewing vehicles. Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon. Additional included activities are a visit to the beekeeping project, sundowners, bush breakfasts, a visit a local school. An extra activity available is to experience the wonders of a safari at night in Tarangire National Park. As dusk falls, relax in the comfort of Sanctuary Swala's customized safari vehicle as you venture into the park transformed by night. Search for nocturnal animals rarely seen as this is one of the few places in northern Tanzania where you can enjoy a safari by moonlight. At night, you may encounter an African wild cat, the elusive leopard or feel the round eyes of a bushbaby peering down at you as the moon rises into the sky. With specialized lighting you will be able to look for lions and hyenas, as well as smaller creatures such as spotted genets, servals, bat-eared foxes, owls and nightjars.
