The secluded, luxurious Lake Manyara Tree Lodge [image: And Beyond South Africa Travel]

1. Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Tanzania

What: The only lodge of any kind in the Lake Manyara National Park, this &Beyond property takes its cue from the area’s famous tree-climbing lions. Ten romantic treehouse suites (not accessible by lions!) are cradled in the boughs of an ancient mahogany forest.

Where: The lodge is situated in a remote and secluded area of the Lake Manyara National Park. Lake Manyara is a shallow freshwater lake in the Rift Valley in northern Tanzania, offering incredible animal and landscape diversity.

Why: Overlooking the lake that Ernest Hemingway called: “The loveliest that I had seen in Africa,” every luxurious suite is designed to look like it’s floating on a sea of green. 

What else: Take an exhilarating game drive (this is one of the few places in Tanzania where you can go on a night game drive); go bird-watching (there are some 400-600 species, including flamingoes); stop for sundowners on the lakeshore; and visit the Maji Moto hot springs.
