Lake Manyara Tree Lodge (Lake
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only lodge in the small
yet diverse Lake Manyara National Park. The lodge is located
in the remote south-western region of the park, allowing for
leisurely tracking of the park's famous tree-climbing lions
and for unimpeded viewing of the flocks of pelicans,
flamingoes and buffalo cooling in the soda lake.
Although it is Tanzania’s smallest park, Lake Manyara is
one of the most diverse reserves in the country. The
beautiful Lake Manyara covers two thirds of the park, while
the rest consists of steep mountainside, swamps, dense
woodlands, open grassy areas and hot springs.
Each of the ten tree houses have been built on stilts, in
the boughs of ancient mahogany trees, discreetly tucked away
in the forest. The tree houses have been crafted from local
timber and makuti (palm fronds) and feature large open decks
and spacious rooms with large windows to invite the
flourishing forest into the luxurious elegance of each room.
The interiors of the tree houses are a sumptuous
combination of natural fibers, pure cotton linen and
contemporary furnishings. The bedrooms consists of
four-poster bed-like drapings and earthy, understated
accessories in natural colors and textures. Overhead fans
and mosquito nets as well as en suite bathrooms with baths
and large twin hand basins ensure that every comfort is
attended to. There is an exhilarating outdoor shower while
the private verandas have comfortable furniture and offer
extensive views of the lovely forest environment.
There is a magnificent open-plan guest area with an
intimate and cozy atmosphere overlooking the forest boma,
with enough seating for 20 people. Dodoma carvings, African
artifacts and sumptuous fabrics and prints are framed by
banana-fiber ceilings and wood-paneled walls.
There is also a stylish lap pool and a crafts gallery,
which features a good selection of community craftwork. Lake
Manyara Tree Lodge also offers the classic Tanzanian private
A gleaming, chrome-accessorized interactive kitchen
includes guests in the preparation of delicious Pan-African
cuisine. In the theatrical boma (reeded enclosure), tandoori
ovens produce heavenly cuisine. Meals are enjoyed in the
open-air boma, the dining area, on the decks in the guest
area or on the guests’ private viewing decks. Breakfasts and
picnics are also savored on the lakeshore.
Game Viewing / Activities:
There are two daily game drives in open 4x4 vehicles,
lead by experienced rangers and guides. The wildlife in Lake
Manyara National Park is habituated to the presence of
humans and this makes our game drives and night drives all
the more rewarding.
Maasai naturalists and a ranger will lead you on bush
walks in the vicinity of the camp, providing an ideal
opportunity for guests to learn more about the fascinating
fauna and flora in Lake Manyara National Park.
