Swala is nestled in a remote pocket of Tarangire National Park, at the edge of the Gurusi wetlands and the unfurling savannah beyond.
The nine private, permanent tents feature ensuite bathrooms with showers, elevated terraces overlooking the waterhole that attracts wildlife year-round. The resident wildlife, include impala (after which the camp is named), waterbuck, lion and various elephant groups. There is even a resident leopard that puts in the occasional guest appearance at the waterhole during dinner.
As part of their commitment to this forgotten corner of Tanzania, the staff and management team at Swala have initiated a pioneering community conservation project that has recently led to the building of a school for the children of a village that borders Tarangire. Guests at Swala are offered the privileged opportunity to learn more about these projects and become involved as part of their stay.
Swala offers an experience that is both exclusive in its setting and luxurious in its style, the ambience of old, wild Africa with a breathtaking location that defines the safari as surely as the wildlife that inhabits it.
