Let me take you on a journey in Tanzania most beautiful wilderness called the Lake Manyara National Park. The wonderful area there has an incredible diversity of landscapes, from the alkaline soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. The game is plentiful here and the safari experiences exclusive—with the Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, the only permanent lodge in the park.
The lodge is tucked into the heart of a leafy mahogany forest.It comprises only ten treehouse suites, clung to the tree trunks and incorporating them as part of the environmentally friendly design.
In fact no trees were axed during the construction, and their boughs are often included in the architecture of the suites.
The suites are built of local wood and covered by the traditional makuti roofs! Thanks to the large windows and decks suspended above the forest floor, the suites invite the lush forest inside.
The thatched roofs and wooden floors matched by a comfortable contemporary furnishing contribute a romantic styling in the lodge.
The surroundings themselves provide a unique nightly experience: the treehouses are part of the wild forest and plenty of noisy animals disturb the nocturnal silence!
The lodge offers only ten intimate elevated tree suites, each with their own private deck. Superb game viewing (including the tree-climbing lions), with safari drives during day and at night. The park enjoys an incredible variety of habitats and wildlife (the soda lake with pink flamingos!)
The bedrooms are mixed with contemporary furnishing in neutral colours and classy textures! Each one features overhead fans and billowing mosquito nets that set the perfect safari ambience. DesignSigh really loves the idea with the intertwined chains made from banana leafs, functioning as screens that separate the bedroom from sitting area.
With the exception of Black Rhinos, the area is richly populated with any type of African game, including the spectacular flamingos, in flocks of hundreds of birds. The area is also famous for the tree-climbing lions, of which there are several families in the park.
If you are lucky enough to be a guest of the Lake Manyara Tree Lodge you will enjoy some unique attractions. The exclusive safari in a remote, game-rich wilderness is one, but there are also private sundowners and lakeshore picnics.
