andBeyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge boasts the enviable title of being the only permanent luxury lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania. Situated in the far south of the park within a forest of mahogany, wild mango and fig trees, the lodge is undoubtedly located in the best part of the park.
Cradled in the branches of an ancient mahogany forest, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge blends into the natural beauty of its breathtaking surroundings. Each of the 10 timber suites is thatched and elevated on stilts for maximum privacy and extensive panoramas of the impressive surrounds.
The suites feature en-suite bathrooms, wooden floorboards as well as French doors which lead out onto private viewing decks where delightful outside showers stand open to the sky, yet carefully screened behind a curved wall of bamboo poles to ensure privacy. The classically elegant rooms are fitted with contemporary furnishings in neutral colours and textures and are outfitted with overhead fans, mosquito nets, and earthy, understated features.
The main area at this superb Tanzania accommodation lodge is a combination of stylish, contemporary design and natural features such as thatched roofs, polished wooden floors and neutral colours that link it to the surrounding bush. Split over two levels, the area is open at the sides and front and is decorated with sophisticated minimalist furniture, soft lighting and well-placed African carvings.
The delightful lounge at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge competes with your suite for the most pleasant place to languorously observe the magnanimous life of the surrounding forest. Let life’s daily stresses melt away while you spoil yourself to one of the deeply relaxing massages at the spa. Refresh after game drives with a dip in the swimming pool and spend your evenings in a convivial conversation around the boma’s crackling log fire.
