Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Kuro Tarangire

overview

Safari Highlights

Kuro is in the quieter central part of Tarangire National Park, in easy reach of the Tarangire River and Silale and Gursi Swamps, as well as other excellent game areas.

Light on the Environment

The camp is set in a grove of acacia trees, on the main game routes near the banks of the Tarangire River. With just six large, light safari tents with verandahs and en-suite bucket showers and flush eco-toilets, this is a quintessential bush camp. The camp is lit by solar, and hot water is provided on demand.  Once out of your tent, you spend time in the open-sided, airy grass thatched lounge and dining room furnished with hides, canvas and touches of colourful textiles.

Africa in the Raw

The camp is within easy reach of excellent wildlife areas particularly well known for big herds of buffalo and elephant, excellent general game and exceptional birdlife. Here, we will enjoy game drives and night drives in open 4x4 vehicles, walking safaris, sundowners and bush picnics. Tarangire National Park is known for having the greatest concentration of wildlife outside of the Serengeti eco-system. During the dry season, the river is the only source of water for many animals, with thousands migrating to it. The landscape here is diverse, with a mix of habitats that are unique to the area: hilly landscapes are dotted with vast numbers of baobab trees, dense bush and high grasses.
