About Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge

With only fifteen en-suite tented houses the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge offers intimate charm and personal service. By staying at Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge, you directly contribute to the wellbeing of the children of the adjacent Rhotia Valley Children’s Home. Quietly tucked away on the top of a hill in rural Africa and at the same time located in the very heart of the Northern Tanzania safari circuit Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge breathes the atmosphere of true Africa.

The lodge is built with indigenous hardwood and in traditional African style. It is in complete harmony with its surroundings. Yet, its spacious set up, personal and friendly service and its finishing touches, such as cosy sofas around the fireplace and warm decorative details, provide a perfectly balanced luxury.

With only fifteen individual tents, Rhotia Valley has an intimate charm. Each of the comfortable tented houses has its own veranda with splendid view. The bathroom is with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet.

Our veranda bar is fully stocked. In the open dining area, wonderful meals are served at your table. Of course any dietary wishes can be taken into account. Rhotia Valley’s experienced chefs use the very best and only fresh products. Most of the vegetables and all herbs are grown in our own vegetable garden.

Enjoy uninterrupted views of spectacular African sunsets. In the morning the sunrise over Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. Accommodation at Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge is ideally positioned to offer the most discerning traveller a taste of Tanzania at its best. Swim in the warm afternoon sunshine in our new guest pool. Here, due to the high altitude, there are no mosquitoes to interrupt your quiet evenings.

Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge is the perfect base from which you can go on daytime safaris. It is centrally located between the nearby major National Parks in Northern Tanzania. Equipped with a rich and delicious lunchbox, lovingly prepared by our kitchen staff, you can have your picnic lunch at Lake Manyara, Lake Eyasi, Tarangire or Ngorongoro Crater. And of course you can make longer trips, for instance to the Serengeti or to another highlight: the Empakaai Crater in the northern Ngorongoro. And return to Rhotia Valley after a few days. We love to hear your stories.
