Escarpment Lodge

Karatu, Tanzania

Nestling into the edge of the escarpment which towers over Lake Manyara in Northern Tanzania is Escarpment Luxury Lodge -the key to escaping the world.

The lodge invites the incredible beauty of the African bush in - expanses of windows and doors mean that you have nature right around you as you sit in the comfort and luxury of the superbly appointed bar lounge. A spreading deck surrounding the main lodge affords you breathtaking views of the lake and the gorge upon which the lodge perches - watch pelican sweep the skies as you take sundowners, see the sun slip like a segment of orange into the hills and listen to the sounds of Africa nestle up to you as night slides in.

You can take a cycle tour from the lodge to the nearby village of Mto wa Mbu where you can indulge your need to shop for local curios and artifacts and immerse yourself in the diverse cultures of people inhabiting this pretty little village.

Escarpment Luxury Lodge is situated only 20 minutes from the Serena Airstrip from which you can connect to Arusha Airport, various airstrips within the Serengeti and, ultimately, to KIA, our International Airport.

Evenings at Escarpment Luxury Lodge will afford you an exhilarating glimpse into local life when you dine in the outdoor Boma adjacent to the main lodge and are entertained by cultural Masaai dancing and singing provided for you by the villagers living near our lodge.

Imagine taking dinner in the bush beneath a spreading Baobab tree - the lake at your feet and the stars over your head. A perfect end to a safari day - cold sundowners and aperitifs beneath the skies of Africa watching the sun set and nature settle in for the night. Pelicans will cover the skies and the sounds of the bush and her inhabitant's will both thrill and lull you...come to Escarpment Luxury Lodge. Escape the world.

Each chalet has its own private deck from which you can view the lake below you and watch wildlife as it drifts through the lodge grounds. Abundant bird life fills the trees and bushes which grow right up to your deck - affording you the sense of being immediate with the natural bush of Africa whilst luxuriating in your private chalet.
