Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge – Breathtaking views of the Great Rift Valley
It is difficult to imagine a more amazing setting for Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge – 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, Lake Manyara. The lake is renowned among ornithologists for its masses of pink flamingos and great birds of prey, as well as the famous tree-climbing lions that inhabit the woodland that nestles between the lake and the Rift Valley.
The architecture and decor of the hotel comes in a graceful, curving and free flowing form, much like the rich birdlife that Lake Manyara attracts. The decor is simple with vibrant touches of colour and also pays tribute to local architectural traditions with individual thatched circular buildings. The public areas include a dining room with indoor and outdoor seating, a bar, lounge and curio shop. A stunning swimming pool offers exceptional views of Lake Manyara. The lodge has 67 good-sized bedrooms with private verandas which share this breath-taking view.
Lake Manyara Serena Activities
Activities include daily excursions to the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara 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.
