WHERE TO STAY IN LAKE MANYARA PARK
Lemala Manyara Camp is a small, isolated site deep in the southwestern wilderness, with twelve guest tents and a communal mess tent. Wildlife roams within feet of your bedded tent. Bush cooking is done over a charcoal burner. Bush television (watching the flame pictures in a traditional campfire) and good conversation are the means of outback entertainment. There is limited solar power, neither in-tent internet (public areas only) nor hair-dryers, and smoky washing water is heated over a wood fire and supplied in buckets to a traditional bush shower head.
In contrast, Manyara Ranch Tented Camp, classed at the same Tier 2 level, is also small and exclusive, outside the park itself, close to the main road and nearby town. The tents have constant hot and cold running water in the bathrooms, and a wide range of activities is available which includes horse-riding, fly camping to hide watching and more.
Lodges in Manyara are also rated on the same system, but consist of permanently built structures of brick, stone and other local materials with a central reception, lounge, bar and dining complex. There is one premium luxury accommodation by andbeyond, Tier 1, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, a breathtaking concept, unique in situation and bold in design.
Ten secluded, spacious chalets are built on stilts in a grove of mahogany trees. There is a central dining room with silver service, a butler and massage services, indoor and outdoor showers and a bath with a view. Extra facilities include a swimming pool, Wi-Fi, special children’s activities and a safari boutique. On the second tier level, there are several northern Tanzanian travel lodges located on the rim of the Rift Valley escarpment overlooking the national park. Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge is large and busy, outside the park border and close to a nearby airstrip.
Lake Manyara Escarpment Luxury Lodge is a surreal sixteen room site with chandeliers and leather furniture, situated on a dirt road close to a Maasai village. On a third, more budget conscious level – Tier 3, there a few unpretentious lodges, with less personal service and flexibility.
The enormous and dated Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge commands an utterly spectacular site, while modest small Kirurumu Manyara Lodge offers scenic views, and is clean and comfortable with a more flexible range of activities and far better service level than the latter (read more on when is the best time to visit Lake Manyara). There is plenty of choice to furnish the African lake vacation experience that is nearest your heart’s desire.

Jambo Raza: Everything was great from the the fantastic wildlife, the scenery, the people, the accommodations and the food. We went to Lake Manyara and stayed at Kirurumu Tented Lodge which was a great introduction for us on the safari.
Liz and Gunnar Kristiansen - Ontario, Canada
Loretta and I had a great time on our honeymoon. We both also really enjoyed our time in the Serengeti. We were able to witness the wildebeest migration and saw literally over 1 or 2 million animals trekking across the plains of the Serengeti.
Loretta and Danny Haag - California, United States
I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.

We took our decision on an extended and complex safari through AfricanMecca Safaris. They did a flawless job across the board. We traveled through Zanzibar (fantastic) Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti without a hitch.

The AfricanMecca Safari experience was great. All the connections were spot on and the lodges and camps were great - 1st class. The safaris were great with the time spent in Ngorongoro totally outstanding. We just totally loved it, a great experience.
Bruce and Susie Ironside - New Zealand
We have returned from our African adventure and would like to thank you very much for your part in making this such a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to time the Great Migration from the Serengeti, which was amazing.
