Some where in its rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees stood my lodging. Overlooking Lake Manyara and adjoining Lake Manyara National Park and the rusty gold 600 meter high Rift Valley escarpment, the Manyara Wildlife Safari Camp. Offers guest comfort and privacy in the ten luxurious canvas tented chalets and sixteen self contained cottages with private balconies overlooking the real Africa- majestic, unfiltered and unadorned. Also perfect for newlyweds, the honeymoon suite is lined with chiffon walls, draped ceilings, large corner bathtub, adjoining shower and private game viewing deck.
The pure feeling of relaxation and serenity, a sensation that is nearly impossible to come by in busy, everyday life, can surely be felt in the camp. Dining out in the open-air restaurant overlooking the African bush is an opulent experience. The evening campfire provides a welcome spot for pre-dinner drinks after a day of wildlife viewing. The camp will also introduce, on request, night drives which will enable the vacationer to take part in the nocturnal nightlife activities of Manyara’s secretive creatures.
You just cannot deny Ernest Hemingway’s comments on Manyara as “The Loveliest place I had visited in Africa”.
