MANYARA SERENA SAFARI LODGE
Dramatically set on the edge of the Mto wa Mbu escarpment, Lake
Manyara Serena offers breathtaking views of the Great Rift Valley and
beautiful Manyara Soda Lake. Built in the traditional African circular
theme, it is free flowing and graceful, with hardly a single straight
line in its design.
NUMBER OF ROOMS
The lodge has a total of 67 en-suite guest rooms The circular,
closely-thatched rooms echo the traditional Maasai ‘Boma’ style of
construction whilst featuring a vibrant interior design concept that
reflects the Maasai people’s abiding love
of brilliant scarlet-and-indigo checked ‘Shukas’ (cloaks) and bright
yellow, white, blue and orange beadwork. Each room has a private veranda
and breathtaking views of the shimmering reaches of the flamingo-frosted
RESTAURANTS & BAR:
Perched high above the Lake with endless views over the floor of the Great Rift Valley, the circular dining room and bright murals of the
open-air bar area feature fabulous avian-inspired frescoes, colourful Maasai artefacts and a unique domed basketwork ceiling hung with carved gourds and nest-shaped lanterns.
OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
Easily the most dramatic of all the swimming pools in the Serena
Group’s stable, the Lake Manyara Pool, which has received significant architectural acclaim, lies below the lodge, on the very edge of the escarpment with mesmeric views across the still waters of the lake and the age-old majesty of the Great Rift Valley.
