Lake Manyara Serena lodge

The extraordinary bird life has made this place world- renowned among ornithologist, who came to observe the masses of pink flamingos and great birds of prey. The abundant bird's life inspired the designs of the lodge- swooping curves are complemented by soft, geometric patterns; striking murals depict bird migration patterns. The circular shape of the buildings is a tribute to indigenous architectural traditions in Tanzania. Beyond the superb standards of hospitality offered, there is a spirit of tranquility that prevails. The lodge is comprised of 67 luxury rooms.
