The Lake Manyara Serena Lodge is an architecturally stunning lodge in a naturally breathtaking location.  Accessible via a bridge over a small stream, the complex is centred around the main lodge area, featuring dining room, bar and “vanishing horizon” pool perched on the edge of a cliff.  The accommodation itself is strung along the cliff in a series of two-storey rondavels, the design of which is intended to provide the most stunning views to all guests.

Each circular room features a private veranda, telephone and WiFi, mineral water and toiletries, bathroom and slippers, beverage room service and hairdryers.  The décor is ostensibly inspired by the surrounding nature, with white-washed walls, blues representing the lakes waters and pinks representing the lake's flamingos.  The furnishings and fittings, however, are distinctly Masai in style, from the hand-woven hanging rug to the traditional bead-work.

For a touch of extra luxury, or for honeymooners looking for something special, the Losimingori Suite affords a stunning view over Lake Manyara and beyond to the eponymous Losimingori Mountain.  The bedroom area is sumptuously decorated with the finest soft furnishings, and boasts a dressing area and well-appointed marble en suite bathroom.  The separate sitting area, meanwhile, offers panoramic views along with multi-channel TV, direct dial telephone and fully stocked mini-bar.  The suite's private balcony overlooks the infinity pool.

Breakfast at Lake Manyara Serena Lodge offers both cooked and continental choices.  Lunch will generally include meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options.  Dinner will feature a salad buffet, soup, entrée, dessert and cheese, followed by teas and coffees.  Produce for meals at Manyara is sourced locally wherever possible.  High chairs and baby-friendly food can also be provided.

Families are more than welcome at Lake Manyara Serena Lodge.  Children will love swimming in the pool, playing with provided board games and listening to the nightly nature talks from professional nature guides.  A babysitting service can also be arranged on request. 

Younger guests can also enjoy most of the other activities on offer at Lake Manyara, such as game drives, canoeing safaris, boat trips, mountain-biking, guided walks, bird-watching trips and visits to local villages.

For something more relaxing or romantic, try sundowner cocktails, a romantic champagne bush breakfast or lamp-lit dinner, or a treatment at the Maisha spa.

Reviews & Testimonials of Lake Manyara Serena Lodge

"Superb Views over Lake Manyara, Excellent Service"

My wife and I spent a night here and it was one of the best lodges on our safari. Service was excellent - fabulous food, staff very attentive and welcoming, rooms very spacious and with great views over the lake. The nature walk was nice albeit short.
I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone contemplating a visit to Lake Manyara.

"Great View and cozy rooms."

We arrived at the lodge from Ngorongoro Conservation Area and immediately I was impressed. The walk to the from the front desk to the rooms is covered with trees and there are numerous bird species throughout. The room was very inviting and clean. The balcony had a spectatular view of the lake and surrounding area. The weather was so pleasant that we kept the door open the entire time we were there.

The pool overlooks the lake as well and has an ajacent bar. The food we ate was the best of our trip. Lake Manyara Serena Lodge was the highlight of the trip as well as visiting Lake Manyara National Park. You will not be dissapointed.
