Swala Camp is located in Tarangire National Park in Northern Tanzania.

Set in the deep south of the park, a good few hours’ drive away from the most commonly visited central river valley, this camp really does feel rather remote.

Most excitingly it is set around a small marsh which attracts elephants throughout the dry season.

This might make getting to and from your tent a bit of an adventure, but it is great for up-close interaction from your verandah.


Swala’s offers 9 private, permanent tents featuring en-suite bathrooms with showers, complemented by fittings and fixtures crafted from local materials to mirror the understated elegance of the time-honored safari style.

Each tent is attended by a personal butler and all the tents are placed to offer maximum privacy and tranquility.

The elevated terraces on the tents are appointed towards the waterhole that attracts wildlife year-round to ensure that your African wildlife experiences do not finish when you leave your vehicle.


The dining area, lounge and library are housed in the main public area, which affords spectacular views from its wooden deck.

Meals are taken in the comfortable dining tent, with full silver service, Pan-African cuisine and fine wines adding to the country house under canvas ambiance.
