Overview

Located in the south of Lake Manyara National Park against a backdrop of the Rift Escarpment, the Manyara Green Camp is set at the base of a waterfall on the banks of the Endabash River. For most of the year, the riverbed is dry, but the waterfall forms the only lake for miles, meaning that the area is a magnet for wildlife including buffalo, elephant and lion, coming in search of water.

The Green Camp offers the adventure of camping in the bush, but not at the expense of comfort. The five en-suite tents are good sized bell tents and are completely water and insect proof with large front and rear gauze door, roof vents and windows which can be closed up. Beds are raised off the ground with thick comfy mattresses, 100% cotton linen and fleece blankets. Each tent has a private veranda with two chairs where you can sit back and watch the game from your deck. Your shower and loo are attached to the back of the tent with hot bucket shower, bath sheets and soap provided.

All meals are communal and served by a waiter. The camp chef bakes bread daily and prepares meals in the camp kitchen using fresh ingredients. Freshly ground coffee, tea and water are available throughout the day and included drinks are sodas, beer, red and white wine, fruit juice and that all important gin & tonic.

This is a lovely option for families with a sense of adventure. With none of the formalities of a larger camp, there is enough space to relax without worrying about hordes of other guests. There are some lovely walks to do to stunning viewpoints and, at certain times of year, the guide will be able to take you to swimming holes to freshen up. The tents can sleep 2 – 3 people, so families will need to spread over two (or more) tents.

Manyara Green Camp is an excellent base for non traditional safari activities. A range of exciting activities in and around Manyara like walking, mountain biking, night safari and cultural experiences that can be incorporated into your safari.

Manyara Green Camp is not fenced off, so parents with young children will need to keep a very close eye on their children at all times.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
