Stay in a romantic tree house like no other at the only permanent lodge in the stunning Lake Manyara National Park in northern Tanzania. &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge boasts luxurious suites built right up in the trees.
The journey to &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is part of the magic. Daily flights land at Lake Manyara Airstrip, after which you will experience the first game drive of your stay to reach the lodge itself. Keep an eye out for herds of buffalo or elephants and remember to look up to spot the park’s famous tree-climbing lions.
Your stay at &Beyond Lake Manyara will be full of memorable moments. Meet the eyes of monkeys on a treetop walk or search for wildlife by the light of the moon reflected in the lake. Spot your first lion lounging in the branches of a tree.
Cycle through Mayoka village or take a tour of Mto Wa Mbu, a small town at the entrance to the park, to have the opportunity to talk to local people, artists and artisans and to sample the local brew – banana beer.
Twice-daily game drives will take you to all of the different habitats within the park. The lake is always good for spotting birds, including the pink flamingo. The acacia woodlands, tall mahogany forest and grassy floodplains are home to a cornucopia of wildlife, including lions, elephants, buffalo and giraffes. Enjoy the antics of troops of olive baboons and keep your eyes peeled for a sighting of the shy Cape clawless otters and slinking leopards.
The night drives reveal a completely different view of the park and its wildlife. Expect to see nocturnal animals such as prickly porcupines, civets and genets. Hippos may be out of the water grazing, and you can see just how big they are.
Enjoy your stay in one of the nine well-equipped tree house suites or the family suite - and luxuriate with a refreshing outdoor shower or perhaps a massage in the ‘Gym-in-a-Basket.’ There’s also WiFi if you want to stay connected.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
