Location: TAASA Lodge is situated in a private concession in the Loliondo Game Controlled Area, about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Kleins Gate, to the North East of the Serengeti National Park, less than an hour’s drive from Lobo airstrip. TAASA has the unique benefit of driving a private concession with no outside vehicles. In addition, guests can easily enter the Serengeti and visit the Mara River depending on migration activity. This dramatically increases guests’ game viewing experiences, enjoying both private and national park access.
Accommodation: TAASA Lodge boasts 12 split-level luxury tents which can be configured with singles, kings, or triples and easily accommodate families, couples and solo travelers. Expertly appointed, and seamlessly blending modern comforts with uniquely African accents, each room measures 50 square metres (or 500 square feet) with a verandah, comfortable lounge area, bedroom area and bathroom. A raised sleeping area features either a king or twin sized beds. En-suite bathrooms are complete with a stone shower, double vanity, and hair dryer, along with sumptuous robes and towels – a touch of indulgence in the bush. Enjoy stunning views of the Lobo Valley from the serenity of your private verandah or curl up with a good book in your own cozy sitting area, beautifully furnished with a large sectional couch and desk.
Facilities & Services: Thoughtfully designed and tastefully decorated, the main building is finished with a combination of precious timbers and large picture windows. In the main lodge is the dining room where most breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served. Meals are also offered outside ‘el fresco’ on the terrace, or on your private veranda outside your tent upon request.
The main lounge, with its opulent settees and indoor fireplace, is located on a second level next to the lounge bar, with a selection of fine wines and spirits. A large outdoor patio with fire pit and lounge chairs provides the perfect venue for aperitifs and hors d’oeuvres or simply for reading, relaxing and meeting other guests. Other facilities include wireless internet access, 220 V power supply with an in-house inverter system, laundry & valet services, and an infinity swimming pool overlooking the Lobo Valley.
TAASA Lodge provides an outstanding game viewing experience in its private concession, for most of the year round being part of the Serengeti ecosystem. Located outside the national park, the lodge is able to offer night game drives, guided bush walks with an armed guard, and authentic cultural interactions with the Maasai tribe. Other activities include bush sundowners, starlit dinners with campfire, exclusive game viewing in open vehicles with off-road drives away from the crowds.
