A great tented lodge close to Lake Manyara. With beautiful hardwood floors and old-school charm, I really liked the refined simplicity of this place. The buffets were great, the lodge was environmentally friendly (lots of solar lights used to light the place up at night), the staff was friendly, and being close to Manyara and Tarangire, there were lots of wildlife on the grounds, including zebras and boars. In fact, a family of boars lived right behind our lodge. To fall asleep listening to the 1000s of animal noises and insect noises while being in the very comfortable tent was a special experience. Great place to relax after a hard day's safari.
The service is much better here than at their sister hotel (Ngorongoro Farm House).
