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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
