The semi-permanent tents were really cozy and beautiful, and if you want to maintain the feeling of being in the wilderness even in the evenings/mornings, this is the place! The night sounds provide a great atmosphere, and there are vervet monkeys providing constant entertainment. Good food and friendly staff! Would choose this place before all others should we come back!

We stayed one night at this camp and had a great time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The place is beautiful, in particular the courtyard with the monkeys and trees. The food was great and the common area is very pleasant. The place is clean and well maintained (e.g. the mosquito nets were in great conditions).

A tent lodge with beautyfull surroundings. We stayed here the first night of our safari and it was a very good start. Good food and staff, though the breakfast was a bit slow. Very peasefull to sit in the sofas of the restaurant in the easly evening and read a book and watch the monkies and mungos playing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Migunga Tented Camp is nestled in a quiet corner on the northwest ofLake Manyara. The camp is ideally situated in shade of a yellow barkedacacia forest, only 5 minutes from the entrance of Lake Manyara National Park. The national park spreads out across the Great East African Rift Valley and is often called Tanzania's water wonderland due to the large number of birds and animals the lake supports. This is also the only area where lions climb trees..Migunga Tented Camp is nestled away in a quiet corner of 35 acres of acacia forest and consists of 21 semi-luxury permanent tents on raised platforms with en-suite bathrooms and a private veranda overlooking the lush forest. All the tents are discreetly placed around a central glade, offering shade and privacy but still only a short walk to the restaurant and bar.At Migunga you wake up in the morning to the sound of the forest, with the beams of the sun finding their way through our the tall trees. In the afternoon you can enjoy our mountain bike ride trail through Lake Manyara’s backyard or enjoy watching our vervet monkeys muck about on the central field. The evenings are resonating with the typical sounds of forest creatures, making you fairytale complete. ... more   less
