Rift Valley Photographic Lodge
The Rift Valley Photographic Lodge is situated on a bush covered ridge and offers a magnificent view over Lake Manyara and the African Rift Valley in the background.
The lodge follows the motif of a traditional Masai village and offers international sophistication with a rugged African beauty. The main building is built around an ancient baobab tree in the style of a Massai boma (chief’s building). The reception area, pool, restaurant and terrace offer spectacular views of Lake Manyara (see pictures). Relax in the lounge, enjoy fine dining in the restaurant or sundowners at the bar next to the terrace around the huge baobab tree. The view to the west guarantees a beautiful sunset. From the main area, the Masai Askaris escort you along small paths to the tastefully decorated, individual and private chalets with views, private verandas and private large bathrooms. Unfortunately this great lodge is often overlooked (probably due to poor marketing).
