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.

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
