Lake Manyara Tree Lodge
Lake Manyara is Tanzania's smallest national park but is one of the most varied in the country. Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the only property in this pretty park which is made up of steep mountainsides, swamps, dense woodlands, open grassy areas and hot springs. Lake Manyara itself is particularly beautiful and covers nearly two thirds of the park area. Ian Douglas Hamilton, a renowned scientist and conservationist, did much of his elephant research here.
Accommodations here are built on stilts in the mahogany trees of the forest. The ten tree houses, built from local timber and palm fronds, are spacious with large windows and open verandas.
The remote southwestern region of the is famous for tree-climbing lions as well as flocks of flamingos, pelicans and buffalo cooling off in the soda lake. Guest staying at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge can enjoy game drives, bush walks, birding, and picnic trips to the lake shore.
