Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania
With its stunning location overlooking Lake Manyara, this sumptuous lodge is the perfect place to start or end an African safari. Gaze down on flamingos and hippos from your base on the Great Rift Valley escarpment, then game drive past tree-climbing lions and astonishing troops of baboons.
The lodge only opened in 2015 and has a modern, almost fashionable style. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure you can savour the views from the bed, while raised wooden decks allow you to breathe in the fresh fragrances of Tanzania. It feels like a five-star hotel, complete with spa, fireplaces, and sumptuous bathrooms. But one look outside and there’s no doubt you’re in the heart of wild Africa.
Lake Manyara receives a lot of day visitors. By staying at this lodge you can game drive at dawn and dusk, when the animals are most active and there are few other vehicles. You might also consider staying an extra night so you can spend a full day with the elephants and baobabs of nearby Tarangire National Park.
On a multi-day Tanzanian safari you’ll probably stay in places that look and feel a lot wilder than Kilimamoka Lodge. However, the luxury is ideal for easing you into a safari, or helping recharge the batteries after some adventurous days in the bush. Activities aren’t included as standard but we can arrange all the logistics for a dream safari program.
