The tree lodge is located deep in the national park surrounded by Forrest it is really a unique location you can absolutely feel the wild surroundings, one of the most amazing things about the place is how close you can get to any kind of animal we had the lions on the trees a couple of hundred of meters of...

We stayed one night during our honeymoon. We stayed in top locations across Tanzania, but the food here was by far the best - absolutely delicious variety of flavors. We arrived back from safari to find champagne on ice and our personal butler had ran us the most amazingly huge bubble bath! A beautiful hotel with outstanding food and service.... More

Surprisingly both the high points and the low points of our trip were here. High points. - A riotous and very attentive butler who surprised us with a champagne pool side lunch…and a family of...

The cabins definitely don't look like the pictures. The generator is turned off at circa 2am so be warned because the fan get's turned off and if it is hot outside then you will have trouble sleeping. Food isn't great at this location. I am sure you can find better value.

and Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge was the second part of our safari, after Serengeti Bushtops and it was a perfect base for an excellent complementary safari experience. We weren’t fortunate enough to see the renowned tree lions, but we had a great time nevertheless. The landscape, birdlife (eg flamingos and numerous other species) and some of the Small Five...

We arrived to Lake Manyara and was met by our guide offering some refreshments and snacks which was really nice after the flight. We drove into the park and had a game drive as the lodge is the only one in the park and is over an hour drive. On our first game drive we saw all types of animals... More

Spouse and I stayed 2 nights as part of an &Beyond safari. Arrangements were excellent and the lodge wonderful. Only 3 or 4 other couples were here and so the service was very personal. We had a "butler" and our own game drive guide - Emme. Accommodations were very special, private and luxurious. Food was excellent. Activities were very flexible... More

Could not ask for a better location! Sleeping in tree houses, and located in the middle of Lake Manyara National Park so you may encounter a wild animal on the grounds.... No worries, feels really safe as you are escorted by native Maasai people to/from your room after sunset and before sunrise.

[This is the most glowing review I've ever written on TripAdvisor, and I'm conscious that it sounds too good to be true. Manyara Tree Lodge is probably the best place I've ever stayed - it deserves every superlative!] What an amazing, magical place!
