This place is so beautiful!! If you book this place try to get here before 5:00 so you can watch the amazing sunset at the cliffside pool. It closes at 6:30 (too early). Or have your morning coffee while looking out at the crater by the pool. The people are sweet and the food is good. The rooms and decor...

As do the soaring views over the Great Rift Valley, the rose-gold sunsets over the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and the utterly unique tree climbing Lake Manyara lions. ... more   less
