Escarpment Lodge, Lake Manyara

Imagine this. You’re sitting on the terrace of the lodge bar, cocktail in hand. A pelican soars lazily across the lowering sky, silhouetted against the faded gold surface of the setting sun. The view from the terrace stretches to infinity, or at least as far as the stunning Lake Manyara and beyond to the gorge. And, as the light lowers, the pulse of the night increases; nocturnal animals begin to exercise their vocal chords in a growing cacophony of wild calls.

Specify Escarpment Lodge as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Tanzania and you’ll be staying in a chalet that reflects the style of the main lodge – supremely comfortable but with the picturesque thatched and wooden architecture that seems part of the natural landscape.
