&Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge Update 
  • NEW Sleepout under the stars experience: 
    • This exciting new activity allows guests to spend an evening under a blanket of a million stars, on an unforgettable sleepout adventure. After a night game drive, guests will be ushered to a secluded and exclusive sleepout spot where luxuriously adorned beds, swathed in romantic netting, a private campfire, and all the amenities that guests require to feel comfortable, await them. Perfect for up two to four guests, over the age of 16.

  • Game viewing has been excellent (as per usual) with reports from our guides that the tree climbing lions, large herds of elephants and resident troops of baboons are providing excellent entertainment for guests. This year, however, the flamingos have been kept at bay, with limited sightings at the lake shore. This is due to the unseasonably high rain levels over the past two years, which have kept the lake level extremely high. 
  • BUT, instead of the vibrant pink attraction of the park’s famous birds, guests can look forward to enjoying the lodge’s beautiful, mini-makeover. Lake Manyara Tree Lodge underwent a soft refurbishment last year and our guest feedback on the new pool and deck, the new outdoor showers as well as refreshed softs and a spruced-up guest area has been fantastic.
