Sanctuary Swala, Tanzania

Ever wanted an authentic safari experience without even needing to leave the comfort of your hotel? If so, Sanctuary Swala may just be your ideal holiday destination. Situated in Tarangire National Park and billed as an eco-friendly retreat, this hotel is made up of a series of tent pavilions for guests to stay and animal watch in.

The hotel’s infinity pool overlooks the park’s busy watering hole, so while you’re relaxing in the pristine water you’ll be able to spy on leopards, elephants and lions, among other wildlife. Though, for any guests who want to get a little closer to the wildlife, there are numerous safari packages available that you can combine with your stay, for a more traditional safari experience.
