“Excellent location and views”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We were four people traveling (2 couples, 2 rooms) and only stayed here one night but were pleasantly surprised. The view is amazing, make sure you're back at the lodge in time to see the sunset. It is very close to Lake Manyara Park. The food was authentic and tasty. The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious and the bathrooms were a lot nicer than we were expecting for a tented lodge in Africa. The bonfire was a great place to relax after dinner and chat with other guests. We were awoken early in the morning by the many birds in the area.

The Manyara Wildlife Safari Camp, is located east of Lake Manyara, just 5km before Mto wa Mbu (coming from Arusha). It is not situated as most of the other lodges on the mountain side.

The tented lodges in the first row have a breathtaking view as you look down at the lake and the horizon the plateau.

Pros:
- great view, especially if you take a sun-downer and watch the sunset
- they have a pool with the same view
- service is discrete, good and friendly

Cons:
- the food buffet style was rather ok with not much taste, the counter gets quickly messy if you come later, it is a bit disappointing to the rest of the comfort

This was probably the nicest lodge we stayed at during our trip through Tanzania. The Staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms nicely decorated, spacious and clean and the views over Lake Manyara absolutely breathtaking. Great stopover, we stayed here on our way to Serengeti and again on our way back to Arusha. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
