Luxury Tented Suites

The 7 spacious, tent-style suites (100 m­²) offer ultra-luxurious accommodation under the immense African skies. Natural textures and surfaces such as wood, canvas, cotton and lava rock convey a sense of merging with your surrounds

Immerse yourself in all that is on offer. Your privacy is ensured with the nearest neighbour at least 80m away. The days are long, languid.

Immersed in your surroundings all you have to do is look and listen as it unfolds in front of you.

This is your cocoon:

Flamingos on Lake Manyara

The sight of thousands of rose-coloured flamingoes at sunrise is a matchless, magnificent sight. Their presence cannot be guaranteed, but if they arrive this is a must-do. Wade slowly towards them in rubber boots or watch from the shore in a safari vehicle with a coffee and snacks.
