Celebrate the sunset Tanzania style
The &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge family mixes tradition and guest delight to create memorable moments for our guests. The lodge’s signature ngalawa sundowner stop is always a big hit.
Guests arrive at the most scenic location, right on the edge of the forest overlooking the vast lakeshore that is often coloured pink by flocks of flamingoes. Maasai guards dressed in traditional attire surround a large ngalawa (traditional double-outrigger canoe of the Swahili people) that contains a full bar.
A bartender stands by to pour everyone’s drink of choice and comfortable chairs surround a table full of delicious snacks, including the lodge’s signature empanadas (their East African take on a South American delicacy). What a memorable way to watch the sun set over the escarpment.
