"Right on the rim of the Great African Rift Valley, this Lodge offers large tented Rooms and a spectacular view from most rooms, restaurant and bar. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and the food is delicious... I seriously recommend staying here after visiting Lake Manyara National Park."

Fantastic Views

"We stayed here twice and both times we had a place with beautiful views of the valley below. 
This place is much more than a tented camp; the rooms may have canvas walls but the door frames are wooden and the rooms have beautiful bathrooms and excellent plumbing (continuous hot water at great pressure). 
There is a very comfortable restaurant and separate bar area. The staff is very friendly and helpful and really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible."
