Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

Most people think that the famous tree-climbing lions at Lake Manyara have developed their climbing habit to get away from annoying insects. At this property, there is another theory - they’re jealous of the magnificent treehouse suites at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge!  Cradled in the boughs of an ancient mahogany forest, the lodge blends into the natural beauty of its breathtaking surroundings.  The only lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, it offers an exclusive wildlife experience with only ten luxurious yet intimate suites located in a remote corner of the reserve.  Hidden away high in the trees, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge offers a sophisticated blend of natural indulgence and romance. Nestled in dense forest between the lakeshore and the steep Rift Valley escarpment, the lodge is perfectly positioned to explore the park’s wealth of habitats. Set in the remote southern region of the park, you would be surprised to see another vehicle on your game drive. The lodge pool beckons like a cool oasis in an ocean of shady green. Generous decks suspended above the forest floor open up to a wooded embrace. Split level sitting and dining rooms combine with high thatched ceilings to create a sense of space, while warm wood interiors and understated sofas carve out cozy corners. Tantalizing aromas drift from the open, interactive kitchen, luring guests to watch as simple but delicious meals are prepared. The theatre of the open kitchen is translated into the drama of the dining boma, encircled by a tall fence of gnarled wood.

  • Tree HousesTree Houses
Treehouse Suite (1-3 Nights)

Each suite is a lofty tree house with private veranda and large windows that open up to the lush forest, welcoming in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Woodchip paths and natural branch railings blur the edges between the natural and the manmade, while wooden interiors and thatched roofs invite the surrounding forest indoors. Spacious bedrooms and sitting rooms float in a sea of green, opening up onto a leafy canopy. Even a soak in the large, free-standing tub offers a panoramic view, with an open air shower behind a simple bamboo screen. Each tree house includes a twin bed which may be converted to a double bed. Tree houses also feature overhead fans, mosquito nets, in-room safe and hair dryer.

        • Game DrivesGame Drives
        Twice Daily Game Drives

        Go in search of Lake Manyara's famous tree climbing lions and vast herds of elephant on early morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives accompanied by an expert ranger. Head out on a game drive as the dawn breaks over the walls of the Rift Valley and the animals begin to stir. Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only lodge in the national park and, as it is far away from the gate, guests do not frequently encounter other vehicles while on game drives, particularly early in the morning. However, they may be lucky enough to spot a pride of lions guarding the remains of last night's feast, or a cheetah heading back from the hunt. Large herds take advantage of the cool morning hours to graze before the heat of the day. On late afternoon game drives, guests can watch the sun slowly sink over flocks of flamingo on the shores of Lake Manyara.
