Our team has many years of experience in African hospitality under their belts. The group was founded by two prominent businessmen from Karatu—the late Jacob Ombay and Reginald Bayo—and has grown from one small lodge in Karatu, to a selection of camps and lodges across the northern safari circuit of Tanzania.

Sadly, Jacob passed in early 2021 but his children are continuing in his footsteps, carrying on his legacy and his work in tourism. Regie continues to be active in the Karatu community and is well known in the greater tourism industry of Tanzania. The group offers employment to over a hundred and fifty Tanzanians and each year they help train dozens of young people who’ve attended local tourism colleges. The commitment to the Tarangire area is such that many people from the village surrounding the lodge are offered employment and training. Additionally, we are acting as stewards to the village land where the lodge is located.

Providing genuine Tanzanian hospitality is our number one priority so please feel at home at Sangaiwe Tented Lodge and let us know if there’s anything we can do for you. Our staff members are well trained and anxious to cater to your every need. We think you’ll find our friendly, authentic service among the best you’ll come across in Tanzania. Karibu!
