Staying at Lemala Mpingo Ridge

There are 15 suites including a family suite. There are single beds, twin beds as well as double beds available.

In every room, there is an outdoor deck area having a sunken lounge that converts into beds, table with chairs, outdoor shower and a bathtub overlooking the valley below.

The interiors have been luxuriously decorated with comfortable beds, mosquito nets, wardrobe, sitting area, double basin, separate toilet, shower and a bathtub inside as well.


The rooms offer amazing views of Tarangire river and the valley below. Animals such as elephants, zebras, antelopes and giraffes might be spotted if it's your lucky day. To top it all, the sunrise and sunset looks spectacular. The pathway between the room and main lodge runs along a ridge which gives good views of prides of lions and leopards. This can be spotted from the common area. The swimming pool is another highlight where you can have a private dinner or dive into the pool while taking in the vastness of the valley below.
