Gorgeous place, and super service. Probably one of the finest meals we had in all of Tanzania. Fantastic view of the lake. Rooms are basic but clean and with a balcony. There is a cost for internet, but it actually works, unlike many places in Tanzania.

The first impression was good, warm African reception, comfortable bar and dining areas, even a well kept (clean) swimming pool. Rooms were comfortable enough, The rooms we were given were nothing to shout about, basic accommodation . The huts we were not given were in the center of the property and had rooms on 2 levels. There were better rooms...

Stunning view to the valley and the lake. Friendly staff, clean room with a balcony, tasty food. What else to expect. The SA white wine was not a mastery of art but even this did not ruin the overall impression.

Beautifully decorated lodge with the best views of Lake Manyara. The staff and management was exceptional. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a pleasant one. My only complaint is, I wished we could of stayed longer.

We stayed here for our last night before heading back to Arusha. In our first room, the sheets had some stains, and we asked them to change, which they did immediately did. For some reason, they put us directly in between a large group when there were only ~20 people in the whole hotel of 100+ rooms. The walls are...

The lodge itself is an old style hunting lodge in beautiful condition. The staff was attentive, helpful and friendly. The manager was visible, and it was clear he wanted to know if there were any problems or issues. The food was good, and there were lots of options. The downsides -- the hotel, along with two others, were purchased by...

The website says it best "Let us invite you to discover one of Tanzania's best kept secrets" - we visited the Wildlife Lodge in August, peak season, yet only 10 of the 100 rooms were occupied. We arrived at 4pm with the magnificent pool overlooking the lake all to ourselves. What better way to wash away the dust of a...
