Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge is perched on the edge of the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment with one of the greatest views over the Great Rift Valley and its soda lake. It is difficult to imagine a more spectacular setting.

The lake is renowned among ornithologists for its birds of prey and the famous tree-climbing lions that inhabit the woodland that nestles between the lake and the Rift Valley.

Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge glows with tranquillity and peace. The design was inspired by the area's abundant bird life - swooping curves are complemented by soft, geometric patterns and stylish plaster mouldings adorn the walls. Accommodation and public areas are housed in individual thatched circular buildings and are a tribute to local architectural traditions.

Rooms & Suites:

Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge has 54 guest rooms. One executive suite, 41 twin rooms and 12 triple rooms. The circular, closely-thatched rooms echo the traditional Maasai 'Boma' style of construction whilst featuring a vibrant interior design concept that reflects the Maasai people's abiding love of brilliant scarlet-and-indigo checked 'Shukas' (cloaks) and bright yellow, white, blue and orange beadwork.

Each room has a private veranda and breathtaking views of the shimmering reaches of the flamingo-frosted Lake.

Food & Wine:

Perched high above the Lake with endless views over the floor of the Great Rift Valley, the circular dining room and bright murals of the open-air bar area feature fabulous avian-inspired frescoes, colourful Maasai artefacts and a unique domed basketwork ceiling hung with carved gourds and nest-shaped lanterns.


Activities, which are one of the lodge's specialities, include daily excursions to the Great Rift Valley and National Park, walking safaris, mountain bike and canoe safaris, mountain climbing, nature walks and traditional dance performances in the evenings.

The lodge is a favourite of young clients seeking adventure activities and of those looking for a safari experience that is different from the usual one and which brings the visitors into close contact with nature and wildlife.
