Accommodation Information



Migunga Tented Camp

Nestled in a quiet corner on the northwest of the lake, Migunga Tented Camp is only 5 minutes from the entrance of Lake Manyara National Park, which spreads out across the Great East African Rift Valley, dominating a vast landscape. Often called Tanzania's water wonderland due to the large number of birds and animals the lake supports, Lake Manyara National Park is also famous for its' tree-climbing lions.

At Migunga you wake up in the morning with the beams of the sun finding their way through our Migunga trees. In the afternoon you can enjoy our mountain bike ride trail through Lake Manyara’s backyard or you can enjoy watching our vervet monkeys. The evenings are resonating with the typical sounds of forest creatures. Migunga is nestled away in a quiet corner of 35 acres of acacia forest and consists of 19 semi-luxury permanent tents on raised platforms with attached bathrooms and private veranda. A year ago Migunga benefited from an upgrade which consisted of the addition of 11 new ensuite spacious meru tents and a new wood and thatch main building which houses the restaurant, bar and reading area. All the tents are discreetly placed around a central glade, offering shade and privacy but still only a short walk to the restaurant and bar.




Ikoma Tented Camp

Set in the midst of an incredible vista of savannah and skies, sheltered in a grove of acacia trees is Serengeti Tented Camp. Ideally situated along the path of the migrating wildebeest between Kenya and Tanzania, the camp is situated at the border of the world-renowned Serengeti National Park. There you will find yourself on probably one of the best game drives in the area - along the western corridor of the park, taking in Kirawira and the Grumeti River - home to the infamous wildebeest-eating giant crocodiles. There is no better place to take in one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles. Comfort is the key to a relaxing and enjoyable safari - even in a bush camp! Each tent has its own en-suite bathroom, modern furnishings and a private verandah. The central restaurant and bar area boast a large fireplace - an ideal spot to unwind with a drink after a long days exciting game viewing.



Crater Forest Tented Camp

This is a beautiful tented camp at the edge of the Ngorongoro Tropical Forest. Enjoy romantic sundowners or twilight dinners on your veranda with the astonishing landscape views of the dense forest. Watch wildlife, like elephants, roaming through the forest, hear the lions roar and listen to the magical sounds of the tropical night. It will be an experience you will never forget.


The camp is set a 10 kilometer scenic drive away from the main road leading from the bustling commercial centre of Karatu town to the famous Ngorongoro Crater. Established on a highland coffee plantation called Kirin Coffee Estate, altitude 1,800 m above sea-level, the camp occupies previously cultivated fields directly bordering Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area (NCAA).The land immediately surrounding the lodge is being restored to some of its natural forest habitat, with the camp management overseeing the conversion from crop cultivation to regeneration of indigenous groundcover, helping the change along by reintroducing around the camp trees and shrubs natural to the area. Forest Crater is operated as an eco-friendly small scale camp with 15 luxury tented rooms under thatch stylishly furnished, all on platforms with magnificent views over the Ngorongoro Forest. The rooms are spacious and all have ensuite bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. For those chilly upland nights enjoy the warmth of your own African-style firepot. Wake up to the sounds of the awakening forest as a night full of nocturnal wildlife activities gives away to mistily rising sunlight. Complementary coffee and tea are served on your veranda in the morning.






Location and park information



Lake Manyara National Park

Stretched along the base of the rift valley escarpment, Lake Manyara national park covers an area of 390 km². The lake is a ground water reservoir, which is partially fed by small rivers and hot springs. The park is well known for its tree-climbing lions, which spend hours in the branches of giant acacia trees up to ten metres above the ground. It also has a big elephant population and a wide range of other large mammals.


The stunning views of the flamingo-filled lake and the Rift Valley escarpment rising up behind it make Lake Manyara a particularly rewarding safari destination for artists and photographers. Bird-watchers will also find this park especially worthwhile with nearly 400 species present. Among them are bee-eaters, kingfishers, storks, hornbills, over 50 raptor species as well as huge flocks of pelicans and flamingos whose pink colours light up the waters of the lake.


Serengeti National Park

A vast expanse of flat savannah grasses stretching from horizon to horizon, broken only by an occasional gnarled acacia and rocky kopje, the Serengeti has some of the highest wildlife concentrations in the whole of Africa. Year round it is one of the best safari holiday destinations to see the "big five"; elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo, whilst the central Seronera area of the Serengeti has one of the continent's densest populations of the elusive leopard.


The short grasses on the Serengeti plains makes it easier to see many of the smaller animals that are always present in the African bush but seldom observed. Fascinating creatures such as aardwolf, porcupines, badgers, jackals, mongooses, meerkats and pangolins can all be sighted.

Adding to the resident wildlife is the annual migration of the wildebeest. Their journey starts in December in the southern Serengeti and finally leaves the northern Serengeti in early August, heading into Kenya. Vast numbers of zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland and gazelle species also get caught up in the wildebeest throng. Keeping them company is a travelling band of predators and scavengers taking full advantage of the extra food on offer.


Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Popularly known as the eighth wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro crater is a spectacular micro-ecosystem that boasts almost all of East Africa's famous wildlife species. The Ngorongoro crater is 16 kilometres in diameter and with walls 610 metre high, it is the largest intact crater in the world. More remarkable still, its confines are home to over 25,000 large mammals.


Hemmed in by the forested walls, the crater floor has a combination of soda lakes, acacia forests, lush marshes, and dry savannah. These diverse habitats support the full cast of East Africa's brilliant animal and bird life; lions, elephants, hippos, buffalo, leopard, ostriches, flamingos, eagles, vultures… to name but a few. The teeming bird population includes more than 100 species not found in the Serengeti.


The Ngorongoro is a conservation area that is owned by the Masai – and in this part of Tanzania the Masai, in their striking traditional dress, are as much a part of the scene as the huge population of wild animals.
