Deep inside the park and far from the crowds, Lemala Manyara camp has an incredibly beautiful location on the edge of an Acacia woodland overlooking the lake. All the tents face the lake and are constantly cooled by the breeze it produces. This traditional seasonal safari camp is supremely comfortable and blends into the surroundings. Guests are treated to beautiful sunrises, while in the evening they may enjoy sundowners on the lakeshore as the sun sets over the escarpment behind the camp. The area is frequented by elephants, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and even lions which are sometimes attracted by the seasonal waterhole in front of the campfire. There is also a wide variety of birdlife around the camp for the bird enthusiast. Manyara hot springs are easily acccessible from the camp and is often the hangout for buffalo and tree-climbing lions. Lemala Manyara can be booked on exclusive basis.
Manyara National Park lies between the towering wall of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara. The waters of the lake with its swampy fringes, the ground water forest, the woodland and the scrub combine to provide habitat for a high density of wildlife. Waterfalls tumble from the terracotta cliffs, streams babble and the lions here climb trees to catch the breezes! In the south of Manyara, near the Endabash river, you will find "Maji Moto", literally "hot water". These hot springs bubble up to the surface heated by geothermal activity. Lemala Manyara is a traditional seasonal safari camp and is supremely comfortable and blends into the surroundings.
Each spacious tent is outfitted with a large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hr solar lighting, and en-suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and a great safari shower.

Lemala Manyara offers an authentic safari experience in traditional style reminiscent of the golden safari era from a spectacular secluded location surrounded by Fig and Acacia trees overlooking the towering Rift Valley Escarpment. It lies approximately an hour inside the park near the Endabash Ranger Post and River, an area of the park which sees very little traffic throughout the day. Being based centrally inside the park, Lemala guests can cover a wider game area and can start their 4x4 game drives as early as 6.15am to enjoy game viewing in relative peace. When they return from their game drives, guests are treated to bush breakfasts or lunches and sundowners in the evening by the camp fire.
