Voyage2Africa recommends this remote and luxurious safari camp with its innovative romantic tree house accommodation in an ebony forest within Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara is famous for its large herds of elephant and the unusual tree-climbing lions, not forgetting the many safari thrills a national park with a lake brings. Seek out the wonderful and vast herds of Cape buffalo, pods of hippo swimming, waterbuck, zebra, warthog, Masai giraffe, impala and reedbuck grazing.
andBeyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only lodge in the diverse Lake Manyara National Park so visitors can make the most of the incredible forests and lake, the huge mountain escarpment of the Great Rift Valley and the wealth of fauna and flora inhabitant here.
Game drives and interpretive walks are the main focus in such a wilderness and the lodge has an environmental ethos of leaving as little impact as possible on nature as possible – only 10 tree house suites on stilts hide in the lush forest setting, a bird’s eye view of the landscape where silence is golden and nights filled with a cacophony of insects, frogs and lion roars. Enjoy elegance defined – free standing bath tubs, outdoor showers, modern furnishings and African décor in a classic sense of safari in Africa.
The forest boma is the meeting place for all meals or the open decks boasting immense and breath-taking forest views. Dip into the swimming pool before dinner and cool off from the hot day of game viewing. Watch the chef at work as he prepares gourmet meals and decadent desserts using only the freshest of ingredients.
