Taking A Break At Tarangire Safari Lodge

After lunch, we pushed on but it was obvious the birds were taking a break so when we passed a sign leading to Tarangire Safari Lodge, I decided it was time for us to take a break too!


The travel blogger in me was keen to check out the accommodation as well.  Of course I couldn’t enter a bungalow but the grounds and facilities were excellent!  They even had wifi at the restaurant so I could check my emails while resting and sipping cold drinks.  The lucky guests had a pool to cool off in.  It was really hot that day!

I really loved the poster they had to show what birds frequent the area!

Our driver had gone off to where the other drivers & guides hang out for a nap and promised to pick us up at 4pm.  Ina & I headed to the restaurant to chill out and have some ice-cold drinks.

The view from the restaurant is amazing!

While we were sitting and relaxing, we could see some Beautiful Sunbirds.

There was also a cute little Speckled Mousebird.
