Mpingo Ridge - July Property of the Month

Mpingo Ridge – July Property of the Month

Mpingo Ridge sits on  top of an escarpment with sweeping views across the perennial Tarangire River and valley below.

Being the sixth largest national park in Tanzania, Tarangire remains slightly off the main safari circuit but is a terrifically scenic park featuring classic African savannah, green hills, woodlands and rivers and is especially famous for its large herds of elephants, superb birdlife and giant baobab trees. Guests at Mpingo Ridge will enjoy a real sense of wilderness and excellent game viewing, and it’s both a relaxing standalone destination and a great place to start a safari.

Each of the 15 spacious tented suites have been carefully positioned to maximize not only the sensational views over Tarangire but to also take advantage of cooling breezes during hot weather. They feature en‐suite bathrooms, private decks, sunken outside lounges that convert to afternoon siesta beds and one of the suites has two bedrooms.

A special feature is the private outside bathtub—perfect for soothing the soul and washing away the African dust after a day on safari.

The elevated main lodge has a large lounge and bar, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a spa and swimming pool.

Sundowners, early morning walks and game drives in new custom–‐ designed vehicles accompanied by highly-knowledgeable and experienced guides are some of the activities guests can look forward to during their stay.
