Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

At a Glance

    Pros

  • stay in a treehouse
  • there's a chance of seeing the famous Manyara tree-climbing lions when out on a game drive (not into your treehouse, though!)
  • the long ride to the lodge from the air strip is treated as a game drive so you could see some amazing animals on the way

    Cons

  • lodge is a three-hour drive from the Manyara airstrip on a bumpy road

Lake Manyara Tree Lodge Review

The 10 tree houses of the camp are cradled in the boughs of giant mahogany trees. It's a Swiss Family Robinson setting without the DIY aspect. You'll be greeted at forest-floor-level entrance by an array of upturned wooden canoes before climbing up to the main areas built under ancient branches heavy with foliage, fruit, and flowers. Your huge wooden thatch bedroom decorated with looped ropes of palm fronds has its own lounge area and en-suite bathroom where you can relax in a bubble bath as birds flit past the big window. Take time to sit on your wooden deck suspended above the forest floor as old elephants browse beneath you and tumultuous birdsong fills the air. There's fine dining by soft gas lamps as owls call. Bush picnics, game drives, and bird-watching trips are all part of the memorable experience at this enchanting camp.
