Stay at Serena Lake Manyara, Lake Manyara National Park

Although large, and with some questionable interior décor, there is no doubt that the Serena hotel has a fabulous location. The pool is probably one of the most stunning in Tanzania.

Serena Lake Manyara, Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania

The Serena Hotel perches on the edge of the Great Rift Valley escarpment with far reaching views of Lake Manyara National Park.

There are 67 rooms along the top of the escarpment, each with own veranda or terrace. Inside, the rooms are comfortable with large bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge houses a large dining room and terrace, bar, games room and curio shop. Perhaps the most spectacular feature of the lodge is the swimming pool. It is right on the escarpment lip, surrounded by a large sunny deck and has stunning views.

The Serena Lodge is 15 minutes from the gate of Lake Manyara National Park, so makes a good base from which to explore it on full day trips with picnics.
