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.

The monkeys and baboons were an unexpected treat. Wonderful although our least favorite spot of the 3.

Lake Manyara Tree Lodge



Fantastic staff with lovely food and great cocktails. The bar and dining areas were very beautiful. Game viewing was poor compared to the other stops and being confined to the roads means it is tough to spot game in meaningful numbers. Manyara offered a nice contrast to the Seregeti and the crater (which was what we were after) but we would likely not return (whereas we woudl go back to teh Serengeti)
