This Lodge, located at the very top of a plateau overlooking Lake Manyara, is a little jewel that will truly surprise you. The way in to the lodge, and even its entrance, is so unassuming that when you walk into the reception area your jaw literally drops. Artistically decorated with natural elements and exceptionally good taste, this lodge has it all... great accommodations, excellent food, and truly outstanding service.
To begin with, when you arrive you are assigned your own personal "butler", who sees to all your needs throughout your stay, including serving your meals and even staging unexpected surprises. Ours was named Daniel, and he was quiet, unobtrusive yet very friendly, respectful of our privacy, and attentive to a fault.
The rooms at the lodge consist of individual wooden chalets, with a surrounding balcony looking down to Lake Manyara in the distant valley. Ours had a king size bed with netting flowing down from a wooden square support suspended from the ceiling, a love seat overlooking the balcony, beautiful wooden furniture and floors, separately enclosed toilet and shower stall, twin washbasins, and a gorgeous tub overlooking the chalet veranda. The lodge has 16 chalets, and for those traveling with family, there are two with a common area surrounded by three, or two rooms, respectively, each room with its en suite bathroom.
The lodge has an infinity pool with a bar, and you can have your meals in the dining room, or ask your butler to prepare a table for you at the pool or at the outdoor terrace. One night, coming in from a full day of game driving, our butler Daniel surprised us with a candlelit room, a tub filled with bubbles and rose petals, and followed by a full meal for just the two of us, out in the terrace , under the stars. So, not surprisingly, this is a lodge we highly recommend, especially to couples looking to mix a little romance with their safari experience.
