Our first night in Africa was spent at the Lake Manyara Tree Lodge and what a way to begin our honeymoon. The lodge is magical and authentic - the feeling of being right up in the trees yet surrounded by luxury and incredible attention to detail.
The personal service and friendliness of the staff goes above - from the cold drinks on arrival to the stories told over cocktails and canapes before dinner. The food was fantastic and in particular the freshly made naan bread, made in the outdoor tandoori clay oven.
The chattering of the monkeys and bush babies meant we didn't have the best night's sleep, but what do you expect when you are in the bush? It just adds to the excitement of the whole place.
The coffees and cookies at dawn were an added surprise, as were the visiting monkeys to our outdoor shower.
We wish we could have stayed longer!
