About Sanctuary Swala
Sanctuary Swala is to be found in a remote valley within Tarangire National Park. The camp offers private game viewing, wilderness indulgence and a privileged glimpse of an Africa undisturbed by mass tourism. Culture is interspersed with extraordinary sights and sounds, comfort mixed with the excitement of the chase on morning and evening expeditions. The friendly and relaxed pace is the ideal backdrop to a thoroughly enjoyable safari holiday.
Large family herds of elephants and concentrations of lions and even the occasional leopard - along with wonderfully prolific birdlife - congregate around a nearby waterhole to create a sensation of majesty and purity. Being unaccustomed to vehicles, the game is unusually "wild". Accomplished hosts and safari guides enhance your stay with their own personalised African affability, professionalism and knowledge. The low volume of visitors to the park offers a truly unique and private experience.
Each tent has en suite bathrooms with showers are complemented by fixtures and fittings including dressing tables crafted from local materials, designed to mirror the understated refinement of classic safari style. Private balconies with cosy furnishings overlook the bush and the river basin. This allows you to gaze at your leisure on resident wildlife including waterbuck and impala, after which the camp is named. Intimate meals are hosted in the comfortable dining tent, with full silver service, Pan-African cuisine and fine wines adding to the rustic charm.
