Sanctuary Swala Camp

Tarangire, Tanzania

Part of the Tanzania Safari & African Safari Collection

Sanctuary Swala is located in an exceptionally private section of the Tarangire national park, offering visitors a luxurious and very exclusive safari experience. The elephants in particular love to come to the camp to drink at the water hole and the big cats are often seen among the massive baobab trees.

In the heart of Maasai country and a remote corner of the Tarangire, in total seclusion amongst giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savannah, Sanctuary Swala offers a very exclusive safari experience. The picturesque landscape is filled with ancient baobab trees, ambling elephants and birds in flight. Built to the highest eco-friendly standards, this camp has a particularly low-carbon footprint.
