You’ll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives, as well as thrilling night drives during your stay at the lodge. Lake Manyara, situated in the magnificent Great Rift Valley, boasts a diverse range of natural habitats surrounding the soda lake, a sanctuary for flamingos and other waterbirds that make it a paradise for birding enthusiasts. The forested valleys and open savannah plains support a large elephant population, giraffes, buffalos, and many antelope species. Although there are fewer predators, Lake Manyara’s lions are a highlight, famous for their tree-climbing habits.

With a density of game that is rarely seen anywhere in Africa, combined with breathtaking scenery, Ngorongoro’s magic is evident long before you reach the crater floor. This is one of the few places on the continent where the Big 5 can be seen in a single game drive, along with herds of gazelle, wildebeest, and zebra. Smaller predators like caracal and serval cats are also often seen, alongside lions and their eternal enemies, the spotted hyena. The forests and marshes are the domain of elephants, while the crater’s wetlands belong to hippos and thousands of flamingos.
After a full day of adventuring and a delicious picnic lunch on the crater plains, return to the lodge’s elegant comforts with time to digest the wonders you have seen and share anecdotes with fellow travellers over fireside cocktails. A sumptuous dinner is served in the glamorous dining room, bringing the day to a delightful close full of decadence and wonder.
