Lemala Mpingo Ridge




Lemala Mpingo Ridge sits on top of an escarpment within the Tarangire National Park. It offers sweeping views over the valley below with the perennial Tarangire River attracting wildlife for much-needed water in the dry season.

Tarangire remains slightly off the main safari circuit but it is very rewarding in terms of wildlife. It is also very scenic featuring classic African savannah, green hills, woodlands and rivers. But of course it is especially famous for its large herds of elephants, superb birdlife and giant baobab trees. Here, at Lemala Mpingo, you enjoy a real sense of wilderness and excellent game viewing.

This ridge-top lodge has a large open plan lounge and bar, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a charming semi-alfresco spa and a large swimming pool.

Sundowners, early morning walks and game drives (and night time game drives)  in custom-designed closed vehicles accompanied by their highly knowledgeable and experienced guides are some of the activities that you can look forward to during your stay.
