7 Luxury Tented Suites

The seven spacious tent-style suites provide ultra-luxurious accommodations beneath the vast African sky. Utilizing natural textures and materials such as wood, canvas, cotton, and lava rock, these suites seamlessly blend with the surrounding environment.

1 Family Tent

The family tent consists of two separate tented bedroom suites. It includes a full suite linked by a small wooden bridge to a vintage-style tented room (50 m²) equipped with an indoor shower. This setup can accommodate up to three children and two adults. One tent features the main bedroom area, while the annex tent, connected by the wooden bridge, contains two single beds for children.


Lakeside Sundowners

Relax on the tranquil shores of Lake Manyara with a drink in hand after the day’s excitement of exploring the bush. Gather your thoughts as you watch the sun set, the first stars appear and the birds come home to roost

Bush Breakfast

Wake up with the birds and set out for an invigorating morning walk. Hear the bush come alive as the sun warms up the earth and its furred and feathered creatures. Afterwards settle down at the foot of a 3000-year-old baobab and enjoy a well-earned full English breakfast.

Walk or run with the Maasai

Discover the wilderness through the eyes of those who have lived it and breathed it for centuries: the Maasai. A warrior will walk with you and a field guide – a rare opportunity to learn how this local population has survived by living in harmony with wild animals for hundreds of years.
