Lake Burunge Tented Lodge
Lake Burunge Tented Lodge is a great value-for-money mid-range tented lodge with a great location overlooking Lake Burunge, just outside Tarangire National Park. The lodge is perfectly located for game viewing in Tarangire and close enough to Lake Manyara to use as a base for game drives in that park as well. In the short rains (November until February) the area around the lodge is teeming with wildlife.
