Lake Manyara Tree Lodge
Jungle luxury in one of the only lodges inside Lake Manyara National Park. Nine stilted treehouse suites, crafted from local timber and makuti palm fronds, boast a sophisticated blend of intimacy and romance, offering privacy and exclusivity in the cool, leafy surroundings, which often has elephant visitors passing through.
Overlooking a forest boma, or outdoor dining area, lined with traditional dugout canoes, guest areas are characterised by soaring spaces that house local artworks and tactile fabrics. An interactive kitchen allows guests to observe, or help with, the preparation of delicious dishes enjoyed in the theatrical boma or on the open dining decks. Treat yourself to a massage surrounded by a lush forest. Or relax at the pool in the heat of the afternoon.

Only in Common Area
Open on three sides, the raised, spacious lounge has several comfortable sitting areas and a light, airy feel to it. It seamlessly combines contemporary design with classic natural features such as the thatched roof with a banana leaf underside. The downstairs dining room (which incorporates a small open-air kitchen) and the deck is adorned with simple, elegant furnishings and extensive use of raw and polished wood. The balcony provides lots of private dinings, like the large, sandy boma area with a fireplace at its centre. The swimming pool is surrounded by gorgeous, lush forest and plenty of reclining sunloungers.
Ten private wooden "tree-house" chalets are set in the mahogany forest on elevated decks. The warm earthy colours and French doors exude comfort and elegance. The en-suite bathroom, separated by a long curtain, has a double basin, Victorian bath, an outside shower and lots of space. In addition to the very comfortable double bed, there is a private lounge and long wooden veranda, all with views of the surrounding forest that makes you feel a part of it.
The jungle setting is magical, and soaking up the views of the surrounding forest from the comfort of your tree-house deck, bed, or bath is the ultimate in (exceptionally luxurious!).
