Our camp, Kuro, has long been a place where people have paused for a while to envelope themselves in Africa’s wild natural beauty. You don’t have to go far here to encounter the creatures that call this place home.
Kuro Tarangire is set amid a grove of Acacia and Kigelia trees on the banks of the Tarangire River – often a dry, sandy course snaking through this quiet area of the park. The area sees the rhythmic movement of wildlife as it traverses the park from the hills in the west to the swamps on the eastern side, and between the north and the south along the river line.
Conscious of wanting to experience this place in a way that harmonises with the natural tempo, without overpowering it, we’ve created a camp with a light footprint. At the culmination of each season we will move on like the Nomads we are, leaving only the trees and birds and animals, as if we were never here.
That’s not to say that we don’t like to be comfortable though. Our six light and stylish rooms are complete with comfortable beds, en-suite indoor and outdoor shower and flushing toilet. The family tent has two en-suite bedrooms and an adjoining sitting area. They rest amongst the trees with views over the African bush. We gather to share meals and relax under the cool grass thatch of the open-sided lounge and dining area which is furnished with hides and canvas, brought to life with a touch of colourful and tactile textiles.
- LOCATION – In the central part of Tarangire National Park, away from the busy north and in easy reach of the main river and Silale and Gursi Swamps plus other excellent game areas.
- SETTING – In a grove of acacia trees, on the main game routes near the banks of the Tarangire River.
- ACCOMMODATION – Six large, light safari tents with verandahs and en-suite indoor and outdoor bucket showers and flush toilets. One of these is a family tent which has two en-suite bedrooms and an adjoining corridor. Open-sided, airy, grass thatched lounge and dining room furnished with hides, canvas and a touch of colourful textiles.
- ACTIVITIES – Game drives and night drives in open 4WD vehicles, walking safaris, sundowners and bush picnics, outstanding mammal and bird viewing.
- SEASONS – June to November; hot days and cool nights with high concentration of both migrant animals and huge herds of buffalo and elephant, this is also the best time for walking safaris. Dec-March, the park is green and full of life; while the migrant animals move to their green season grazing to the east, this is a wonderful time to see elephants and birdlife is at its most spectacular.
- CHILD POLICY – We are delighted to accept children over the age of 8 at Kuro Tarangire. Only children over 12yrs will be allowed to take part in walking safaris.
