Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

andBeyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is set in the heart of a mahogany forest, and is the only lodge in the diverse Lake Manyara National Park. From soaring groundwater forests and a tranquil lake, to the mountain escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park boasts an incredible wealth of habitats and diverse African wildlife. Guests are offered an exciting, interpretive safari experience in game-rich surrounds which include large herds of elephant and buffalo.

The Lodge, which was designed to exert minimal impact on the environment, is situated in the remote south western region of the Park. It offers 10 stilted tree house suites, each with classically elegant decor, outdoor showers and freestanding baths with a forest view. Generous decks are suspended above the forest floor and large windows which appear to invite the lush forest inside.

Meals are served in the forest boma (outdoor dining area) or on the open dining decks with spectacular forest views. An interactive kitchen allows guests to observe the preparation of delicious dishes. Other facilities include a swimming pool and safari shop.

Holiday to

Richard and Anne Hobbs

A nice location, but with limited game and for us no lions! There is too little light in the rooms, around the boma and on the paths. Anne tripped over and was badly injured on her shoulder, hand and elbow!
