Maramboi Tented Camp offers an unusual perspective on the arid, palm-studded grassland plains in the Great African Rift Valley, between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park in a 65,000 acre corridor of conservation concessionary land owned by the Maasai people. In this unique and strategic location, the camp owner - Tanganyika Wilderness provides a perfect base during your Northern Tanzanian safari circuit to explore the evolution of mankind in this primeval volcanic area, and to come to close quarters with an astonishing variety of wildlife, just a two-three hours’ drive through scenic wilderness from Arusha. The lack of tree cover ensures clear sightings of migratory herds of thousands of ungulates and elephants on a limitless expanse of golden semi-desert backed by the looming blue escarpment of volcanic craters, including game-rich Ngorongoro Highlands and distant Ol Donyo Lengai, the still active cone of the Maasai’s Mountain of God. On a Maramboi Tented Camp safari, you can explore on foot as far as the salt-encrusted shores of Lake Manyara, or game drive to watch the dramatic unfolding of wilderness action in an area unrestricted by national park regulations. For avid AfricanMecca birdwatchers, the area is a treasure trove of 550 species of feathered beauties in vivid, natural toned and diverse colors. Nearby Datoga and Maasai boma villages present unbeatable opportunities to take in their cultural richness on your African tour holiday.

Accommodation At Maramboi Tented Camp

30 airy tents, raised on wooden decks, cluster amongst an oasis of palm trees. They have rectangular chalet style thatched roofs supported on high pillars and are reached by raised wooden walkways with sturdy balustrades, which meander across grassland frequented by zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and warthogs. Two of the tents comprise double adjoining units suitable for family safari holidays to Tanzania. Maramboi’s tents are clean, roomy and comfortable with mosquito nets for the beds which boast stylish wrought iron head-boards. All have en-suite bathrooms with showers and vanity units. Since this is a wilderness camp making a minimal impact on the surrounding environment, solar heated hot water and 24 hour lighting is present although there is no direct grid current source from the outside. Maasai escorts at Maramboi Camp are always on call to accompany you safely to your tent at night from the large main building which houses a commodious lounge and one-of-a-kind Lampara Bar, a bizarre, fringed edifice of unmistakable ethnic craft. The lodge also accommodates an open-sided mess tent restaurant and al fresco dining deck with swimming pool overlooking Lake Manyara (read more on where to stay in Tarangire Park). There is a small library and an office area with internet facilities and cell-phone coverage in the reception area where you may check in at 1200 hours in line with your arrival and departure safari transfers with AfricanMecca.

Safari At Maramboi Tented Camp

Touring in Tanzania, favorite activities from Maramboi Tented Camp include terrestrial game drives and bird watching, although there are also opportunities to visit anthropological and cultural sites. Tanzania bird watching experience in Lake Manyara is a delight with flocks of waders, pelicans, and lesser and greater flamingos forming a pink fringe to the shore where they sift shellfish from the rich brine with their specially adapted bent beaks. You may spot the rare collared palm thrush, or see the Gymnogene -- the African Harrier Eagle, swooping with slow, graceful wing beats to a warning chorus of terrified herons. A trip to Tarangire, preceded by a half-hour approach drive in your pop-up roof, custom built 4 x 4 with on board refreshment and radio communication to enable your guide to share evidence on game movements, takes you through native farms and villages. African Wild Dogs -- Lycaon pictus, previously thought to be extinct, have been seen here. Inside the Tarangire National Park, African travel dreams come to life in all shapes and form (read more on admirable times to visit Tarangire). You may be puzzled to see giraffes that look darker than usual in the distance due to their larger and deep colored markings. But the flora stars of the show are the towering baobab trees, up to 70 feet tall and 35 feet in diameter. They were here when Bushmen painted the Kolo Rock, and are still here to amaze modern era man on his wilderness seeking tour of Africa. On camp arrival on your AfricanMecca trip into Tarangire, you will be welcomed with cool drinks when any dietary requirements you have will be verified and noted.

Dining At Maramboi Tented Camp

All meals are included and are served in the dining area or on the viewing deck. They are freshly prepared from local produce when possible. After early morning tea or coffee on your verandah, breakfast may be taken in the central dining area, or a pre- packed lunch collected for a full day game viewing drive activity in Tarangire. A selection of fruit, cheese, oats or toast and eggs cooked to order make a hearty breakfast before a guided one-hour walk to the border of Lake Manyara. A luncheon buffet of hot or cold dishes precedes your afternoon siesta, followed by afternoon tea on request. Late afternoon is one of the best time for a game-viewing drive, stopping for traditional African travelers’ sundowners en-route, or returning for pre-dinner snacks on the viewing deck as the bright sky fades and the golden hour spreads across the savannah, heralded by a chorus of insect calls as the sun is extinguished and a million stars flash out against a charcoal sky. Sundowner cocktails can also be enjoyed by AfricanMecca guests around a campfire or by the Lake Manyara; private dinners under the lighted night sky and lanterns can be arranged. Silver service dinners in the Maramboi Camp restaurant are accompanied by a fine selection of beers, wines, spirits, and other beverages. Dinner by starlight is a keynote of any African wildlife safari, accompanied by the grunts and rumbles of animal neighbors sharing the all-enshrouding night.

When staying at Maramboi Tented Camp in Tarangire, we recommend combining it with your Northern Tanzania safari to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.

You may optionally extend out to offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Selous, Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale by the relaxing Lake Tanganyika.
