Sanctuary Swala Camp in Tanzania {limited time honeymoon deal}

New for this fall season, Sanctuary Swala Camp (part of the Sanctuary Retreats collection) in Tanzania, has just re-opened and is poised to become one of Africa’s most iconic retreats. Following this $1.5 million rebuild, the camp now offers guests a new level of high-end accommodations developed all within eco-friendly standards. Now, each of the 12 spacious canvas pavilions, designed around an open-plan model, offer large living areas, king beds and en suite bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers. Floor to ceiling canvas windows lead onto large private lounge decks that overlook the main watering hole which regularly draws lions, leopards and resident bull elephants for which Sanctuary Swala is famed.
Aside from the revamped tents, a stunning infinity swimming pool has been added and the new main dining and lounge areas feature chic, contemporary African designs all under traditional thatched roof structures. The extensive decked area provides the perfect setting for leisurely sundowners and elegant dining while enjoying outstanding views over the waterhole and valley beyond. Sanctuary Swala offers travelers all of the comforts from home while still retaining the feeling of living in the African bush.

Located in the secluded area of Tarangire National Park, one of Africa's most exciting yet least visited parks, this magical spot is renowned for its high concentrations of game. In fact, guests will often only share their visit with the large herds of elephants that favor this exclusive corner of the park. Tarangire is also fast building a reputation for being one of the best locations to get up close to wild bat-eared foxes. The wilderness experience here is accentuated by expert guides, and will soon offer the exciting option of walking safaris.

In celebration of the opening of Sanctuary Swala Camp, 2009 rates will remain throughout 2010, and Game Package Rates will start at $440 per person/per night, all inclusive. For bookings or further information, go to
