Sanctuary Swala Safari Camp – Find Seclusion in Tanzania

In the heart of Maasai country and a remote corner of Tarangire, in total seclusion among giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savanna, Sanctuary Swala offers a very exclusive safari experience.

The main area of Swala Safari Camp is situated right under a big baobab tree, a common sight in these parts of Tanzania. The dining area, lounge, deck and small library feature a contemporary African design with a traditional thatched roof. This main area is lifted on stilts allowing a wide view of the grasslands of the Tarangire right in front of the camp. The stunning infinity pool overlooks the nearby waterhole often visited by elephants as well as big cats. The relaxing pool area also provides the perfect place to sip a cocktail and cool down after a day of game viewing. Swala has been renovated to the highest eco-friendly standards and has a particularly low carbon footprint. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the main area and in guests’ tents.

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 boasts 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.
