This combination of habitats creates an incredibly rich and varied environment that attracts an abundance of wildlife year-round.

Tarangire National Park is espescially famous for its vast number of elephants, the ancient baobab trees along with dozens of exotic bird species.

Created by a massive volcanic eruption millions of years ago, one of the unique features of this caldera is its dense population of predators, making it one of the best places in Africa to witness predator-prey interactions. The crater’s flat, open plains offer excellent visibility, providing Safari guests with incredible opportunities to observe the Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros).

Africa Safari Lake Manyara Lodge

Africa Safari Lake Manyara is located directly on the border of the Lake Manyara National Park. The lodge grounds are part of a Game Controlled Area (GCA) – expect to see a lot of animals staying permanently in the area. These include zebras, wilderbeests, different types of monkeys and of course many bird species. The gardens are dominated by large yellow bark acacias (also known as ‘fever trees’ or Vachellia xanthophloea) that provide shade and shelter for the cheeky vervet monkeys.

Neighbouring the large and comfortable bar / lounge there is a nice swimming pool with sun loungers and umbrellas. It offers truly magnificent views of Manyara lake and the surrounding area. Farther towards the lake you will find the restaurant with equally exciting views. For your own security, it is recommended not to walk alone during the night in the lodge premises. The staff will assign you a Maasai askari (watchman), just in case a bad tempered big cat decides to pay a visit.

You will stay in a Safari Comfort tent. These accommodations are spacious, and comfortable, having exterior canvas walls, a concrete floor and a permanent bathroom. Watch the zebras grazing from your very own private terrace, equipped with comfortable chairs. The spacious 60m² tent is furnished with a king-sized bed and a single bed. Another single bed can be added on request. You will find a comfortable seating area in the room as well as plenty of storage space to make you feel at home. The accommodation has a semi permanent bathroom with an European toilet, washbasin and walk-in shower.
