We stayed here for 2 nights. The camp is owned by a safari tour operator. They had just finished constructing (sewing together?) new permanent tents and they are amazing! So new, the varnish had barely dried. We had 2 adjacent, which looked directly out onto Lake Manyara. From our back private balcony, we could see Zebra, Giraffs, everything (OK, no Lions or Elephants). The rooms were beautiful with bed netting which hung from the ceiling 30' up. The bath rooms were amazing with very large showers. They were in the process of putting the finishing touches on all the walk ways, landscaping, etc. and we were told that all the older tents were going to be torn down and replaced. The main lodge was very nice with plenty of seating to gaze out over the lake. Food was good, buffet style, and served by flash light. Not too sure why, as there was 24 hour electricity. You can also sit inside if you like. There were very convenient wash rooms right before the main lodge so you could wash off the dust from your Safari and go directly to dinner, lunch, drinks, etc. You do need an escort after dusk to return to your room. Driving off the main road to the camp we came across many local tribes who were more than happy to take a small token like a pencil or chewing gum (be sure to take off the wrapper). The hotel Manager was very well mannered in dealing with tourists from all over the world. Would love to go back.
