Lake Manyara Tree Lodge
Lake Manyara National Park contains diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Here, the Great Rift Valley is at its most impressive, with the escarpment dropping some 500 metres down to the lakeshore. The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants.
Large herds of buffalo, giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes. Troops of several hundred olive baboon appear alongside Sykes monkey.
Set in the heart of a mahogany forest, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is one of only two lodges deep inside Lake Manyara National Park. The Lodge, which was designed to exert minimal impact on the environment, is situated in the Park’s southwestern region. Guests are offered a mostly exclusive interpretive safari in remote game-rich wilderness.
Cradled in the boughs of ancient mahogany trees, ten stilted treehouse suites, crafted from local timber and makuti (palm fronds), are a sophisticated blend of intimacy and romance, offering privacy and exclusivity in cool, leafy surrounds. Each treehouse suite features generous decks suspended above the forest floor and large windows invite the lush forest inside. The classically elegant bedrooms are fitted with contemporary furnishings in neutral colours and textures, overhead fans and billowing mosquito nets. The bathrooms have freestanding baths with a forest view and an outdoor shower.
An interactive kitchen allows guests to observe the preparation of delicious Pan African food that is enjoyed in the theatrical boma, on dining decks or on private viewing decks with spectacular forest views. Breakfasts and picnics are also served on the lakeshore.
