Welcome to Africa Safari Lake Manyara

Located in Mto wa Mbu – Tanzania

STAY CONNECTED IN THE BUSH! All lodges now offer Free WIFI Internet


Africa Safari Lake Manyara lies between the foothills of Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara, but even more striking is its location, which could easily be mistaken for the middle of a national park. Because of the large number of animals that are permanently present on the lodge's premises, end of 2021 the area and its surroundings have been declared a Game Controlled Area (GCA).

The accommodation is a safari in itself with different room types spread across the various sites. The Luxury Glamping accommodations are reached by walking through the subtle bush to your own private 'safari cabin', complete with hammock, raised wooden deck, living room and beautiful rustic wooden interior. The premium bungalows share the same view as the restaurant area and you can't imagine being closer to the wildlife. The Safari Comfort accommodations are spacious, and comfortable, having exterior canvas walls, a concrete floor and a permanent bathroom.

The swimming pool with sun loungers and umbrellas is conveniently located near the bar and main buildings. The solidly built restaurant offers a magnificent view of Lake Manyara itself.

Africa Safari Lake Manyara is considered a wildlife lodge and overnight stays are subject to GCA fees.

Africa Safari Lake Manyara

Africa Safari Lake Manyara   ·   Top location, between Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro

Africa Safari Lake Manyara is located between the foothills of Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara however far more distinguished is its position that could easily be mistaken for being right in the middle of the National Park. The accommodation site is a safari in and of itself with various room types scattered throughout the diverse grounds.

The Luxury accommodations can be reached by walking through subtle bushland to reach one’s very own private ‘safari cabin’ complete with hammock, raised wooden deck, living room and beautifully rustic interior.

The premium bungalows share the same view as the restaurant/bar & dining area and you couldn’t find yourself in closer proximity to wildlife. While you sip on a cool refreshing beverage at the end of your safari day, looking out over the expanse of Lake Manyara dappled with an array of pink from the flamingoes in the distance you almost feel as though you are sharing a meal with the herds of zebra and wildebeest that neighbour the border of the grounds.

The grounds also offer a swimming pool with sun terrace, lounge bar, restaurant, fitness & massage centre, free WiFi, 24- hour reception and an excursion desk for all your questions, excursions or last-minute Safari trips.

Go for Beach & Culture to Zanzibar

Zanzibar is the perfect stop after your intensive Safari game drives in mainland Tanzania. The climate in Zanzibar is tropical but not too hot and humid. Zanzibar it’s a tropical paradise only a short distance away from the equator and all famous national safari parks. It is a place to relax or to find a mix of influences of Arabic and African cultures.

There are many local flights to Zanzibar or try the fast ferry between Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

Extension Zanzibar   ·   The jewel of the Indian Ocean

Enjoy the ultimate Beach & Safari Holiday.

There is no better way to end your safari than by spending a few days/week relaxing on the pristine beaches of the exotic Zanzibar Island. Zanzibar is an island of culture, history and art. Stroll through the cobbled alleyways of the historic Stone Town, and as you pass by one of the many palace ruins and Persian baths it is impossible not to be captivated by the strong Arabian influence and romanticism of the Island. The coastal regions are the perfect places to relax and rejuvenate.

Spend some lazy days along stretches of white sandy beaches, dive into the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean or explore the underwater world surrounding the island by trying out a dive or snorkelling tour. Allow time to stand still as you sip a cool beverage, enjoy the finest of fresh seafood and watch one of the many spectacular sunsets on display.

Really glamorous

Nice camp close to the lake Manyara national park. We stayed a few days there to do our safaris to lake manyara (around 15 minutes away), Tarangire (around 1h50 away) and Serengeti & Crater (we went by plane). The camp is really nice and lovely created. The tents are huge and with great comfort (we stayed in one of the larger ones). The service, especially in the restaurant, was really great. Nicely created pool area and some other facilities like billiard and a small gym which we did not use.
