Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only lodge in Tanzania’s unique Lake Manyara National Park, set in the heart of a mahogany forest where Ernest Hemingway once hunted. From here, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is conveniently close to Tanzania's exquisite soda lake and is situated high up for excellent game viewing.
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge boasts ten spacious tree houses cradled in the boughs of mahogany trees. Each tree house suite features large windows to invite the lush forest inside. The classically elegant rooms at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge are fitted with contemporary furnishings in neutral colors and textures and are outfitted with overhead fans, mosquito nets, and earthy, understated features. Rooms are spacious with comfortable lounging areas on the decks and in the rooms. Each tree house has an outdoor shower, bath, and double basin.
At Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, the main guest areas are intimate and cozy yet seat 20 people comfortably. There is a craft shop featuring signature community craft work, a pool, and a forest boma dining area where delicious dinners are prepared. Dinners are also offered on guests’ private decks or in the sala. Breakfasts, picnic lunches, and sundowners can be enjoyed at the lakeshore, and lunches can be taken on private decks nestled in the mahogany forest.
Stretching for 31 miles along the base of the rusty-gold 656-yard high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. The compact game viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.
