Claire Jooste takes us on a journey through the finest camps and luxury safari lodges in Tanzania’s fabulous north region
The ethos at Legendary Lodge is to make guests feel completely at home. It is one of the few luxury safari lodges in Tanzania, set on a coffee plantation in Arusha, this former hunting lodge has been converted into a chic bolthole and designed as a base for bookending a safari. The enormous suites are found dotted around the property and sing with dark wood and white linen, while staff have permanent smiles on their faces – the team even include a personal butler for all guests. Food at the lodge is also exceptional, with everything freshly made onsite – judging by the taste and presentation, the chef takes great pride in every dish that he produces.
