Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

The only permanent luxury lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is a collection of magnificent tree houses built on stilts nestled in ancient mahogany forest. There’s nothing childish about these structures however; the 10 luxurious guest suites at this secluded camp boast beautifully appointed bedrooms, open-air showers and free standing baths that appear to be completely immersed in the lush greenery of the tree canopy.

The lodge also has an inviting pool, furnished decks floating high above the forest floor, an interactive kitchen and an atmospheric open-air ‘boma’ encircled by a wooden fence. It also has a fleet of open 4WD vehicles to take you out into the surrounding bush by day or by night.

Discover the diverse landscapes and wildlife of Lake Manyara National Park, famous for its pink flamingos and tree-climbing lions. Over 400 species of bird have been recorded in this park, while buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, elephant and hippo are all commonly observed. Guests at this lodge are also able to encounter local tribes such as at the nomadic Mang’ati and the Maasai on a bicycle tour or village excursion to gain some insight into local traditions and culture.


How to get to Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

Guests can fly into Lake Manyara airstrip by scheduled or charter flight from Arusha or Dar Es Salaam. The lodge is approximately 2.5 hours drive from the airstrip – a scenic transfer through the park.

Tanzania Overview

Why Tanzania: Few places in the world can offer the immense diversity and quantity of game found in Tanzania, nor the ease of viewing it. Tanzania is also the arena for the great wildebeest and zebra migration and has some of Africa’s most stunning scenery.

Game Viewing: The best time to visit is November to May when the wildebeest herds amass on the Serengeti’s southern plains. Feb/Mar is when the herds are calving. The dry season (Jun to Sep) is the best time to visit Tarangire and the Selous.

Culture: With some 120 tribes, Tanzania is culturally very diverse, with peoples ranging from the Nilotic Maasai to Hadza bushmen, the Makonde (famous for their wood carvings) and Swahili-speaking coast-dwellers, some descended from Arabs.

Climate: Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000 ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between Nov – May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

Combine With: Kenya. Most visitors arrive via Nairobi in Kenya so it is easy to combine parks in the two countries. Kenya’s famous Masai Mara is an extension of the Serengeti and the wildebeest migration can be found here in September/October.

Getting There: You can fly via Johannesburg in South Africa then north to Nairobi in Kenya. Or fly via the Middle East to Nairobi. We can organise road transfers from there to Arusha, the “safari capital” of northern Tanzania; alternatively, you can fly into Kilimanjaro Airport.
