Overview

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.

  • 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.
