This picturesque safari hideaway is in the southwestern corner of Tarangire National Park, affording guests private game viewing, wilderness luxury, and a privileged glimpse of an Africa untrammelled by tourism. Swala offers an experience that is both exclusive in its setting and luxurious in its style.
Swala's nine private, permanent tents feature ensuite bathrooms with showers and fittings and fixtures crafted from local materials. The elevated terraces on the tents face the waterhole that attracts wildlife year-round.
Throughout your stay, you will be serenaded by the resident wildlife, including impala (after which the camp is named), waterbuck, lion and various elephant groups. There is even a resident leopard who puts in the occasional guest appearance at the waterhole during dinner.
Meals are taken in the comfortable dining tent, with full silver service, Pan-African cuisine and fine wines. Swala's hosts, personal tent attendants, safari guides and the Masai askaris who accompany you to your tent at night will enhance your stay with their friendliness, professionalism and knowledge.
As part of their commitment to this corner of Tanzania, the staff and management team at Swala have initiated a pioneering community conservation project that has built a school for the children of a village bordering Tarangire. Guests at Swala are offered the opportunity to learn more about these projects and become involved during their stay.
