star rating  Once you come, you won't want to leave... TARA RAFT! - The camp and its employees are characterized by a pleasant atmosphere and exceptional hospitality. In the first sense of the word, you feel at home and among your own people. Quality new equipment and internationally certified skippers guarantee that your experience on the river will be unforgettable and, above all, safe. From my personal experience, I can say that this is the only such camp on Tara, a beautiful place that I have been visiting for more than 15 years.

star rating  Rafting - Excellently organized camp, which, unlike other camps, is not overcrowded or over-commercialized.
The bungalows are clean, decent with its own bathrooms. Food very tasty, plentiful (various types of meat, fish, sač, homemade kajmak, ajvar).
All staff young and very helpful.

Skippers especially raise the review of the camp ☝..especially Srdjan and Luka. Very professional, educational, we learned a lot about the river / rivers, and had a great time. Srdjan maneuvered the rafting so that every minute was too much fun for us!
It was so good that my friends and I paid for another rafting for the next day and went down again

As for the party, the first night was a rock gig, so we then went to the "Drina-Tara" restaurant for a party (which btw has a price list of drinks like in the center of Belgrade). The second night was an acoustic gig and it was great. Prices for drinks are very affordable at Tara Raft camp.

I am already planning to go there again with my feiends in a month!

An absolute recommendation!
