Fodor's Review

The 27 secluded double tents of this highly regarded, intimate camp set among indigenous bush high on the escarpment will make you feel much closer to Africa than some of the bigger lodges. Spacious thatch-roof tents, each with its own veranda, are built on wooden platforms with great views overlooking Lake Manyara. Gaily decorated with animal-motif furnishings, woven straw mats, and carved bedside lamps, all tents have an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and ceramic

hand basins. Larger family tents are also available. Known for its excellent food and friendly service, the camp is an ideal base for game drives in the park, mountain biking, hiking, and bird-watching. For something very special go fly-camping in the forest, but fix this with the lodge in advance. After an action-packed day, sip your sundowner in the attractive open-sided bar before enjoying a memorable meal in the restaurant with stunning views over the Rift Valley floor.
