Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

The only permanent luxury lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is a collection of magnificent tree houses built on stilts nestled in ancient mahogany forest. There’s nothing childish about these structures however; the 10 luxurious guest suites at this secluded camp boast beautifully appointed bedrooms, open-air showers and free standing baths that appear to be completely immersed in the lush greenery of the tree canopy.

The lodge also has an inviting pool, furnished decks floating high above the forest floor, an interactive kitchen and an atmospheric open-air ‘boma’ encircled by a wooden fence. It also has a fleet of open 4WD vehicles to take you out into the surrounding bush by day or by night.

Discover the diverse landscapes and wildlife of Lake Manyara National Park, famous for its pink flamingos and tree-climbing lions. Over 400 species of bird have been recorded in this park, while buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, elephant and hippo are all commonly observed. Guests at this lodge are also able to encounter local tribes such as at the nomadic Mang’ati and the Maasai on a bicycle tour or village excursion to gain some insight into local traditions and culture.


How to get to Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

Guests can fly into Lake Manyara airstrip by scheduled or charter flight from Arusha or Dar Es Salaam. The lodge is approximately 2.5 hours drive from the airstrip – a scenic transfer through the park.

Tanzania Overview

What is the best thing to do in Tanzania?
A wildlife safaris is an absolute must as Tanzania is one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations. Witnessing tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti is an unquestionable highlight, whilst the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the natural wonders of the world. A trek to the top of Africa’s highest peak – Mount Kilimanjaro – is a bucket-list experience for any adventure enthusiast.

What is the climate like in Tanzania?
Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between November and May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

How do I get to Tanzania?
There are only two European airlines – KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Turkish Airlines – that fly directly into the country. Otherwise, flying via the Kenyan capital of Nairobi (where far more major airlines fly to including British Airways and Air France) is another option. From here travellers can then fly to numerous airports in Tanzania.

For travellers coming from the United States at least one stop is required. The easiest airlines for connections are either with KLM or Qatar Airways via Doha. From Doha there are also direct flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

What can I combine Tanzania with?
Tanzania is often combined with other countries including neighbouring Kenya or either Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Tanzanian safari.
