This is a conveniently situated camp for Lake Manyara and should have been a better experience than it was. We arrived from Arusha and although it was clear that we were not the fittest and youngest of guests were taken to the most distant of the lodges. There we were given a twin bedded room when we had specified double room on our booking. When dinnertime came there was no torch bearing escort to take us to dinner. We had to try and attract attention to get help and the little bridge was a definite safety hazard in the dark. The environment was very attractive as other contributors have said and it should have been a better experience but was let down by a casual approach to the needs of guests when the lodge was barely half full.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Migunga Tented Camp is nestled in a quiet corner on the northwest ofLake Manyara. The camp is ideally situated in shade of a yellow barkedacacia forest, only 5 minutes from the entrance of Lake Manyara National Park. The national park spreads out across the Great East African Rift Valley and is often called Tanzania's water wonderland due to the large number of birds and animals the lake supports. This is also the only area where lions climb trees..Migunga Tented Camp is nestled away in a quiet corner of 35 acres of acacia forest and consists of 21 semi-luxury permanent tents on raised platforms with en-suite bathrooms and a private veranda overlooking the lush forest. All the tents are discreetly placed around a central glade, offering shade and privacy but still only a short walk to the restaurant and bar.At Migunga you wake up in the morning to the sound of the forest, with the beams of the sun finding their way through our the tall trees. In the afternoon you can enjoy our mountain bike ride trail through Lake Manyara’s backyard or enjoy watching our vervet monkeys muck about on the central field. The evenings are resonating with the typical sounds of forest creatures, making you fairytale complete. ... more less
