Wildlife Viewing, Bird Watching, Cultural Activities, Massage, Hiking and Walking

Wildlife Viewing

We’re located near to some of the most amazing wildlife areas on the planet. The gate to the World Heritage Ngorongoro Conservation Area is about a 15-minute drive from the lodge. To the east and south lies Lake Manyara National Park, a jewel of a park lying on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. Both areas are equally accessible for day trips.

Relax or Swim

Sometimes its best just to stay put! Our gorgeous gardens are a balm to the senses and the pool is just a few steps away if you fancy a dip.

Hiking and Walking

You can easily walk into town from the lodge to experience a bustling African community. There are plenty of shops and a local market to explore. If you fancy a stroll into the countryside that’s another possibility. One of the staff can escort you to a neighbouring coffee plantation or you can hike in the Ngorongoro Conservation area for a more strenuous outing.


We offer therapeutic massages (adjacent to the pool bar) to work out the kinks after a long day on the safari circuit.

Bird Watching

With about 1200 species of birds, Tanzania is one of the best places to watch our feathered friends. Even if you’re not a keen “twitcher” you’ll find it hard to resist marvelling at the colourful and sometimes comical avian visitors and residents at the lodge.

Cultural Activities

There is ample opportunity to visit some of the fascinating tribes nearby. You can visit the Iraqw, Hadzabe or Datogo communities. The interesting agricultural village of Mto wa Mbo is nearby too.
