A beautiful setting in the Rift Valley overlooking Tanzania’s Lake Manyara is home to Maramboi Tented Camp, where zebras and giraffes wander past the luxury tents, along with playful warthogs. Conveniently located in the migratory corridor between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, the camp makes a great base to explore this area, before moving north to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. Maramboi is run by Tanganyika Wilderness Camps, and has just been renovated to new levels of comfort without losing any of its wilderness appeal, the unfenced camp being shaded by palm trees with long views out over open savannah.
Set on raised wooden platforms and shaded by thatched roofs are 26 standard tents, 10 suites and 2 family tents with two interconnecting bedrooms. All the tents are spacious and elegantly furnished with king sized, twin, or triple, wrought iron four-poster beds draped in mosquito netting, safari chairs and tables, fans, writing desk and rugs on the polished wood floors.
The en-suite bathrooms have flush toilets and showers with solar heated water. Electric lighting is available round the clock and there is free wi-fi throughout the camp. Each tent has its own private verandah looking out over the grassy plains where wildebeest and zebra roam.
The main lodge dining area is a wide deck with thatched shady areas looking out towards Lake Manyara, where ample buffet meals are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and guests can select their own packed lunches to take out on safari.
There is also a small swimming pool to while away an afternoon spotting game from the comfort of a sun lounger between refreshing dips. The friendly and professional staff and guides are always on hand to escort guests between their tents and the main lodge, especially after dark.
Sundowners before dinner, watching the dramatic sunsets over the lake, and the atmospheric camp fires every night are great times to gather with fellow guests and exchange safari experiences.
Maramboi provides a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful atmosphere with diverse wildlife viewing, a place to catch your breath between safaris and experience the heart of Africa.
