Taking as its muse the glorious bird life of the fabulously soda-encrusted and pink flamingo-fringed...Lake Manyara, the swooping curves of this elegantly evocative lodge defy description. As do the soaring views over the Great Rift Valley, the rose-gold sunsets over the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and the utterly unique tree climbing Lake Manyara lions.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that our every need was attended to. The property was very clean, well-sanitized and well guarded with security officers on regular patrol. The view from the patio dining overlooking Lake Manyara was breathtaking! The service was impeccable and the food far exceeded my expectations. The shower was hot with great water pressure and the pool was kept pristine so we enjoyed a cool dip each afternoon after a long day. At the end of the week, we felt like we were leaving good friends. Would definitely stay here again - worth every penny!

Went to this place during our honeymoon. My wife and I loved the service. We were received well. Meals were versatile and so delicious. We had a lot of fun swimming and talking night walks in their beautiful walk ways. The rooms are so comfy and neat.

We were passing by Manyara and had lunch here. Due to Covid there was no other guest but the chef was very very accommodating and brilliant. His name was Jospehet. He made us Lentil curry and Chapati and made sure all our vegetarian dietary requirements were met. The setting is amazing overlooking lake manyara. Would definitely recommend visiting here.
