Lake Manyara Tree Lodge has large tented rooms with large netted windows. The tents are mounted on a wooden platform with a veranda. Some of the rooms are built around existing trees. There are just eight rooms, the soft furnishings are, as you would expect from CC, excellent light neutral colours and the beds are extremely comfortable. There are two queen size beds in each room. When a twin is required the beds are separated.The bathroom is off set from the main bedroom and there is an outside shower, probably the best we experienced. The honey bath scrub is intoxicating.
The main guest areas are again built around existing trees – there is an upstairs lounge area with interesting piece of art and very tasteful black and white prints. The whole ambiance is very relaxing and pleasing on the eye.
Downstairs the interactive kitchen allows guests to observe the preparation of delicious meals, which may be enjoyed in the theatrical boma, the dining decks, or on your own private deck.
The outside boma really is again hopelessly romantic lit by hurricane lanterns it is alfresco dining at its best.
Scot and his very able team manage the lodge extremely well and made us feel so welcome. My whole view of the CC properties has changed, and I would highly recommend them.
My suggestion would be to spend at least two nights at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge and explore the further reaches of Manyara instead of rushing in after an afternoon game drive and rushing back out the following morning.
You could easily spend two or three nights at Tree Lodge. A wonderfully relaxed atmosphere great food and fantastic service.
