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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
