Lake Manyara Tree Lodge’s contemporary design is masterfully merged with its natural surrounds and great care was taken to ensure optimum views – from the lounge and dining area, which are set on a split level and features comfy sofas; to the open-plan kitchen, where extraordinary meals are prepared.
In the Lake Manyara Tree Lodge lounge area, sharp, clean lines and muted colours are combined with creature comforts and traditional African carvings, ensuring lazy afternoons drinking in the views. Next to it, a large boma – artistically fenced off by beautifully gnarled wood – beckons, and it here that guests can feast during outdoor dinners and barbecues.
In Masai culture, a boma is the enclosure around the house where cattle is kept. At Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, the space is transformed at night with storm lanterns.
The plush Lake Manyara Tree Lodge accommodation comes in the form of ten stylishly simple and understated tree houses, which are connected to the main area with woodchip paths.
The Lake Manyara Tree Lodge suites are hidden in private clearings in the bush, and are set on stilts. Thatched roofs and reed walls add to their earthy allure of Lake Manyara Tree Lodge while modern elements reign supreme in the interiors – including relaxing lounges, huge beds, claw-foot baths and idyllic outside showers - so it’s all about indulgence at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge. No wonder the in-room massage treatments are so popular here.
A short stroll away from the tree houses, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge’s curved swimming pool and its comfortable loungers offer even more relaxation, with shady umbrellas to ward off the sun during the hottest times of the day.
Apart from the luxurious lodgings, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is also a sought-after game-viewing destination, and has several excellent safari activities on offer, ranging for early morning and afternoon drives to all-day adventures.
