Taking as its muse the glorious bird life of the fabulously soda-encrusted and pink-flamingo-fringed Lake Manyara, the Swooping curves of this elegantly evocative lodge defy description. As do the soaring views of the Great Rift Valley, the rose-gold sunsets over the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and the utterly unique tree climbing Lake Manyara lions.Grouped around a central vanishing horizon' pool, this highly unusual lodge features a simple timbered reception area, built in traditional African style, which is accessed via a bridge over a small stream. Beyond reception, lies the central dining room, bar and veranda, below which lies the pool. Perched on the very edge of the cliffs, with stunning views of Lake Manyara National Park is the pool bar and observation point. Dotted around the grounds, all with views over the lake, are a series of circular two-storey rondavels', which house the rooms.
