Lemala Mpingo Ridge

This is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever stayed. Words in a review will not come close to doing it justice. Tarangire Park is a very special place and Mpingo Ridge is the best camp to take advantage of it all. The view from this camp is simply stunning and one of a kind. The rooms are beyond spacious and comfortable. The white and natural decor is perfect for Africa. The highlight of our stay though was the kindness and friendliness of the staff. They were the most accomodating of any hotel I've stayed. They made us feel like family and we were sad to leave!

Lemala Wildwaters Lodge

We were there for a two night stay for my wife's birthday and they helped me pull off the best birthday surprise ever. The room was amazing, the food was amazing and the staff were on point. Juma, the head waiter made sure that we were well taken care of. Talk about value for money, that was it.

Lemala Nanyukie

The place looks amazing and the staff is really nice, really warm people. If you are looking for a place to connect with nature this is it. It’s the place where you fall asleep to the sounds of the forest. The view from the top is breathtaking. Despite the low temperature, everything is very cozy! Excellent food also! I would visit again!
