Maramboi Tented Camp is located in the Lake Manyara area of Northern Tanzania. A large camp with access to both Tarangire and Manyara National Parks, this beautiful conservation area provides impressive scenery and reliable wildlife viewing.
The main house has a thatched roof and fantastic views of the plains. The lounge and dining areas are great places to relax surrounded by palm trees and looked after by attentive staff. The camp also offers a particularly lovely swimming pool with views across the bush.
Although the game viewing here is not as diverse as other reserves, it is reliable and includes great access to the migration corridor between the two national parks. Game drives are taken in private vehicles with private access to the southern sector of the reserve, meaning busy roads can be avoided. The nearby Lake Manyara offers excellent bird viewing opportunities. Flamingos, egrets and pelicans are here in abundance and guests can wade out across the flats for a closer look. Activities also include ‘Bush Sundowners’ on the shores of the lake and gentle nature walks with views of Rift Valley.
One of the larger camps on offer in Tanzania, Maramboi has 40 large guest tents. These permanent structures are surprisingly spacious inside and tastefully furnished with large beds and lots of light. Each en-suite tent has its own private veranda and 24-hour electric lighting. There is also the option of two interconnecting rooms, ideal for families.
Children of all ages are welcome and accommodated for at Maramboi, although specific activities and programmes are not offered. Parents should note that the camp is unfenced and while it’s unlikely that animals will approach tents or humans, they must supervise their children at all times.
This pleasant and restful camp is one of the most affordable in the area due to its larger size and offers a slightly different safari experience. For those with a keen interest in birds, Maramboi is highly recommended.

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.

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!

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
