Maasai is E Unoto Retreat's theme. It is located in a secluded and natural spot in the Maasai plains outside Lake Manyara National Park, and is easily accessible by road and air, approximately 120 kilometers southwest of Arusha. It is centrally located for access to all the famous national parks: Serengeti Plains, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire Park and Mount Kilimanjaro.
The setting for E Unoto Retreat is straight out of a Hemingway novel: a luxurious lodge with a Maasai Camp configuration. It features spacious individual Maasai style bungalows with private verandas. It is near a Maasai village, with authentic Maasai crafts and original works available. The lodge overlooks Lake Miwaleni and the Great Rift escarpment. Sumptuous international cuisine is served from the open-air restaurant and bar overlooking the lake and swimming pool.
Kirurumu is located on the ridge of the Rift Valley wall. The lodge is rustic and has been designed to compliment the eco-system. If you prefer creature comforts then Serena would be a better option, however, the main building and a few of the accommodation tents have a fantastic view of the valley below.
The lodge has a total of 20 tents and are very basic but have en suite facilities and hot water. They do not have mosquito nets, so if you stay here, make sure you are well protected. Each tent has a wooden veranda, which is a fantastic vantage point to view the sunset. The tents are recommended if you want a bit of bush experience. If you're not relaxing by the bar you can enjoy canoeing or riding a mountain bike on one of the trails.
Lake Manyara Hotel overlooks Lake Manyara from its perched location upon the Rift Valley escarpment. With its own landing strip, a direct flight to the hotel means you have more time to view game or just relax. Lake Manyara Hotel offers you 100 comfortable rooms to relax in and enjoy an outstanding view from the terrace. A swimming pool invites you to cool down in, while shops offer African art. A local farm supplies the restaurant with fresh farm produce, which gives the hotel a unique characteristic. The bar is a warm and cosy spot to relax in and consume delicious cocktails.
Lake Manyara National Park contains a very dense equatorial forest and this is home to a remarkable concentration of wildlife. If you're not relaxing at the lodge then you will be enjoying game drives looking for lions perched on trees, or countless colonies of pink flamingos, pelicans and thousands of other lake-dwelling birds flapping and splashing amid hippos. Lake Manyara Hotel offers you an excellent venue for you to enjoy your stay and safari.
Manyara Serena Lodge is located at the edge of the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and overlooks the Great Rift Valley and the Manyara soda lake. Each of the 67 spacious rooms has an en suite bathroom with shower facilities and a private veranda with spectacular views of Lake Manyara. Inspired by the abundant birdlife, the design of Manyara Serena Lodge is complimented by soft, geometric patterns and striking murals depicting bird migration patterns.
The lodge's main area includes a dining room with indoor and outdoor seating, a bar, lounge, curio shop and a small meeting room. An outdoor swimming pool is available for you to relax in after a day on safari. Climb into a Landcruisers and descend into the Lake Manyara reserve at three scheduled times daily. Then take a guided bird walk and enjoy nature's solitude. Each evening after dinner, you may choose to have coffee or drinks around the campfire where there is local entertainment to amuse you.
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is situated in the exclusive southern area of Lake Manyara National Park, approximately a kilometre from the lakeshore. Most of the safari operators conduct game viewing in the northern areas of the park, thus you will be assured of undisturbed, private game viewing.
There are only ten luxury tree house lodges, made from timber and thatched roofs, overlooking the forested boma. The rooms are romantic, spacious and private, all equipped with modern conveniences such as an outdoor shower, and full en suite bathrooms. Cuisine offered at the Lodge is unpretentious, wholesome and delicious. For a more intimate dining experience, staff will pack a picnic lunch and sundowners for you to enjoy around the lakeshore.
