“Beautiful accommodation and view of Lake Manyara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

The accommodation is stunning and so is the view of Lake Manyara from the restaurant and pool area. We spent a night there with our 18 and 20 year old children. While we enjoyed it, we felt that it is probably more suited for couples as it is very secluded and lacked a friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better views of the lake so you would be best to request this. Also some have quite...

There are only about 10 bungalows on the entire property. We were in bungalow 1 the furthest from the main house. The bungalow is HUGE and extremely comfortable. Staff is awesome and the food delicious. When you go to the balcony for your sundowner the sweeping views of lake manyara are just breathtaking. They have a great pool, and this property has got to be one of the only properties that has air conditioning in the rooms.

We arrived after a very long dusty drive - the staff singing their welcome to us was an encouraging site. The check in was handled promptly and the room was over the top wonderful. Great view from our deck, the outdoor shower was fun, the bed and linens were first class. We enjoyed a late afternoon drink on the terrace and then made our way down to the performance area where we were entertained until dinner was ready. And then we had more music and dancing as we ate a terrific meal by the light of the bonfire. A warrior escort to our cottage may not have been needed - but it certainly added to the ambience. The breakfast was excellent - lots of buffet choices and a short menu as well. The only disappointment was only spending one night here!

It is hard to describe how amazing this lodge is. Luxury is the focus and service is top notch. Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager and introduced to our butler, Daniel, who was such a lovely young man who created a feeling of caring that made our stay here wonderful. We had two nights here in a jam packed schedule and we made some changes so we were able to spend time in our private room enjoying the shower, bathtub, bed and gorgeous views.
Meals were delicious, breakfast, lunch (to go) and dinner with entertainment each evening. On our last evening the chef and his staff put on a special BBQ on the lawn with delicious meats, soups, salads and desserts.
The Massai warrior escort to our room after dinner was a surprising service that we became accustomed to as we continued our travels in Tanzania. We would definitely come back to Escarpment Luxury Lodge.

Room Tip: Number 12 was beautiful.

We were there for just one night but the place is amazing! The pool of course is a big plus with the views. The rooms are outstanding and very comfortable... Just be careful! We locked ourselves out in the balcony! :)
The musicians were great, we had a fab time dancing with them.
Just wished they had given us a better table for a honeymoon dinner, but overall it is a nice place to stay.

We had such a wonderful stay at the Escarpment Lodge. The lodges are private and well-maintained; the staff are wonderfully helpful and professional; the food was incredible and the views and amenities were second-to-none. We had reliable wifi connectivity, which was rare during the majority of our travels through East Africa, and we particularly loved the open-air shower which provided a unique experience to complement the magnificence of the nature all around us. The lodge is private, quiet and very close to Lake Manyara. We really loved our stay here and would certainly come back on our next trip to Tanzania.

After 10 days in 3 other national parks - we saved this as a treat to wind down and relax. It was perfect. Stunning views. A big deep bath with 24/7 hot water! Plus an inside and outside shower. Spacious, clean and beautiful rooms which are individual bungalows complete with wrap around porch. Jo and Zane were welcoming and charming, and worked very hard to ensure everyone had the best of food, comfort and service. AC was available if needed. Don't fly to Zanzibar unless you want a beach. Stay here and relax by the infinity pool with your every whim catered for.
