We stayed at two Hotels and Lodges Tanzania's hotels (here and Ngorongoro) and we much preferred our experience at Ngorongoro. The grounds at the Lake Manyara lodge are well maintained, (apart from the occasionally marauding baboons that like to pay your balcony a visit) with a pool, nice outside bar and sprawling great room. However, the particular night we were... More

This hotel has a wonderful view from the rooms of Lake Manyara in the distance. It was otherwise sadly, very below standard. The bedrooms were lovely and well appointed. Tea and coffee facilities, as well as a fridge, robes and a safe were in the room. The bathroom was very small indeed. A larger person would not be able to... More

We stayed at Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge as part of a self-drive safari, and the hotel is a bit hard to find, with very limited signage. In addition the road to the hotel is in very bad condition, which unfortunately doesn’t provide a good welcome. Once inside the hotel premises however, everything looks beautiful and well-maintained, and a large number... More

This has to be one of the most relaxing places i have ever been to. During the day lounging on padded deck chairs on the bluff overlooking the Lake. Most people are off on safari so you often have the pool and views to yourself midday ! Great food staff rooms and hospitality.

My daughter and I recently stayed in room 25 for one night during our safari with Climb Kili. The room had 2 large beds with netting, a small moldy bathroom and a beautiful view to die for. Although we couldn’t sit on the balcony and enjoy the wonderful view because of a lingering baboon, the entertainment he provided was enjoyable.... More

Long overdue review... The lodge and the rooms have nice views. Got an upper floor unit at the end of the property. super close to Lake Manyara. Pool looked cool, though we didnot have time to enjoy it. Decor was very pleasant. Breakfast was good, but the service was a little slow - getting you seated, clearing tables, refilling empty...

We stayed here on day 1 of our 6 night safari booked with Bobby's Tours in Arusha. This place is stunning. The view is marvellous. All internal rooms that we saw were well decorated and had loads of character. The external areas the same. Food was good when eating in the Restuarant but the lunch boxes that they prepared were...
