Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only lodge inLake Manyara National Parkand it offers an exclusive wildlife experience. The park is famous for its tree climbing lions, large herds of elephant and flamingo. The lodges offers spectacular Rift Valley views

Ten elegant stilted tree houses are cradled in the boughs of mahogany trees, ensuring privacy for all guests. Built of timber and makuti (palm fronds), the interiors are bleached, earthy and stylishly understated. Rooms are spacious with sitting areas and viewing decks. Ensuite bathrooms with a bath, outdoor shower, twin hand basins and private w.c. Guest areas are intimate and stylish, and feature an interactive kitchen. The sitting and dining areas overlook a charming forest boma lined with ngalawas (dugout canoes). The Lodge has a Safari Shop featuring signature community craft work and a range of lodge branded safari clothing.

Each suite is a lofty tree house with private veranda and large windows that open up to the lush forest, welcoming in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Woodchip paths and natural branch railings blur the edges between the natural and the manmade, while wooden interiors and thatched roofs invite the surrounding forest indoors. Spacious bedrooms and sitting rooms float in a sea of green, opening up onto a leafy canopy. Even a soak in the large, free-standing tub offers a panoramic view, with an open air shower behind a simple bamboo screen.

- The lodge pool beckons like a cool oasis in an ocean of shady green.
- Generous decks suspended above the forest floor open up to a wooded embrace.
- Split level sitting and dining rooms combine with high thatched ceilings to create a sense of space, while warm wood interiors and understated sofas carve out cosy corners.
- Tantalising aromas drift from the open, interactive kitchen, luring guests to watch as simple but delicious meals are prepared. The theatre of the open kitchen is translated into the drama of the dining boma, encircled by a tall fence of gnarled wood.

Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge stands high on the bluff of a dramatic ochre and terracotta streaked cliff above the flamingo-frosted expanse of Lake Manyaraís gleaming alkaline waters. The Lodge commands panoramic views across the volcano-studded floor of the Great Rift Valley.

The lodge is designed to reflect the brilliance of Lake Manyaraís unique bird life and draw on an inspirational architectural motif that melds swooping avian curves with the gentle concentric patterns of traditional Masai íBomasí (encampments).

The ambiance of the Lodge is a fusion of lakeside tranquility, towering volcanic splendour and adventure-packed sporting activity.

The circular, closely-thatched rooms echo the traditional Maasai Boma style of construction whilst featuring a vibrant interior design concept that reflects the Masai peoples abiding love of brilliant scarlet-and-indigo checked *Shukas* (cloaks) and bright yellow, white, blue and orange bead work.
In total the lodge has 54 rooms:

1 executive room 12 triple rooms 41 twin rooms

Each room has telephones and a private veranda and breathtaking views of the shimmering reaches of the flamingo-frosted Lake.


Kirurumu is a small tented lodge located outsideLake Manyara National Park. With the most stunning views of virtually anywhere in Tanzania, Kirurumu looks out over the rift valley and down on to Lake Manyara itself ñ a simply beautiful spot!
The Facts

  • 22 tented rooms
  • stunning views
  • good cultural interaction
  • good for children
  • can be used for Manyara and Ngorongoro

The Detail
On the edge of Lake Manyara National Park is run by Hoopoe Adventure Tours, taking its name from a Bantu word meaning echoing waters, describing the sound of the river running nearby.

Kirurumu is the only owner-run safari camp at Lake Manyara and the most atmospheric, with permanent tented rooms built onto a stilted wooden base, designed to give each a private bush enclosure with its own undisturbed view. Wonderfully hot and powerful showers with solar-heated spring water in every tent make it hard to fault.
The open-sided dining room and naturally sanded wood and rock-enclosed bar also make the most of the location, and food and service are excellent. Meals rely heavily on fresh fruit and produce, and vegetables and herbs from their own organic garden, and are greatly enhanced by a selection of fine wines from the bar.

The honeymoon tent is hopelessly romantic, with a wide wooden bed under voluminous nets. Naturally there is no reason that such treatment should be exclusively for the honeymooning few? Its position outside the Park means that Kirurumu is free from Park rules, and the lodge specializes in botanical walks through the surrounding bush with Maasai guides to describe the medicinal uses of plants. The many resident bird species will delight watchers, and a watering hole and extensive bird list help you spot and name them.

Our view:
This is a really great little camp, even the somewhat bizarre orange bathrooms provide character! We really like this place - a refreshing option for those of us who do not want to stay in the large hotels for the duration of their Northern circuit safari. The views are simply stunning and the local village near the camp is a great place to explore.
