Standing high on the edge of a towering terracotta escarpment with panoramic views over the glittering alkaline waters of Lake Manyara, Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge offers a unique blend of safari opportunities, peace and tranquility, wildlife discovery, and ornithological richness. Grouped around a central ‘vanishing horizon' pool, this highly unusual lodge featu ...res a simple timbered reception area, built in traditional African style, which is accessed via a bridge over a small stream. Beyond reception, lies the central dining room, barm and veranda, below which lies the pool. Perched on the very edge of the cliffs, with stunning views of Lake Manyara National Park, is the pool bar and observation point. Dotted around the grounds, all with views over the lake, are a series of circular two-storey ‘rondavels', which house the rooms.
