Day Game Drives
Sanctuary Swala is located in a secluded area of Tarangire National Park, one of the most exciting and least visited parks in the country and set In the heart of Maasai country. Swala has been sited in total seclusion amongst giant acacia trees overlooking flat savannah landscape, and offers a very exclusive safari experience. The picturesque landscape is filled with ancient baobab trees, ambling elephants and birds in flight. Built to the highest eco-friendly standards, this camp has a particularly low-carbon footprint.
Each of the twelve canvas pavilions is shaded by tall acacia trees and all are within sight of the well frequented water hole. They are unashamedly luxurious and exquisitely furnished but still close enough to nature to permit an exciting night under canvas. The tents feature a spacious open plan arrangement with comfortable king or twin beds, campaign chairs and plush sofas and boast an en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor shower for that extra bit of luxury. Sip cocktails or enjoy scrumptious dinners on your own private veranda and watch the waterhole which regularly draws lions, leopards and resident bull elephants while your own personal attendant caters for your every need.
Tarangire is famed for its large concentrations of elephant and spectacular baobabs of every shape and colour. 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 customised open safari vehicles offer unobstructed viewing and great photographic opportunities.
