Situated in the shaded acacia forest on the northwest of Lake Manyara, Migunga Tented Camp offers a prime base from which to explore the Lake Manyara National Park as well as the colourful town of Mto Wa Mbu. Whilst lacking the plethora of wildlife the surrounding national parks boast, the Lake Manyara area hosts some unique game and works well as a stop on route to the Serengeti.
One of the area’s most famous attractions is the tree-climbing lion. Looking up into the acacia forest canopy to see a relaxing pride of lions hanging from the branches is truly something to behold. Elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, hippo, flamingo, warthog, zebra, waterbuck, impala, dik-dik, and a huge number of baboons litter the plains around the trees, ready to disperse once the lions have climbed down from their afternoon naps.
Nestled in one of the quieter corners of acacia forest, Migunga Tented Camp is made up of 21 raised semi-luxury tents. Each is fitted with en-suite bathrooms and a private veranda that overlooks the verdant forest diaspora, which means guests wake up to the sound of the forest and the odd beam of sunlight cutting through the vibrant topography. Migunga Tented Camp’s main lodge consists of a wood and thatched building that houses a restaurant with daily 4-course menu, bar, and reading area.
Bicycle trails offer guests the opportunity to explore the Lake Manyara area on the ground and at their own leisure. Along the way, guests can spot vervet monkeys playing. Safari walks are also a great way to explore the area at dawn, which is the best time to spot the Lake’s beautiful array of birdlife, and usually end with sundowners. It is not uncommon for curious birds and monkeys to take safari walks of their own and stroll right past your tent.
This is a Tanzanian safari experience characterised by captivating views and a breadth of activities than its game-viewing opportunities.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
