I very much enjoyed my stay at Escarpment Lodge. The views from the hotel are magnificent. The views of Lake Manyara are beautiful. It's very quiet and peaceful. I stayed there for about five days. The entire staff was very kind and professional. They made me feel right at home and were always available when I needed something. I also got to take a safari trip to the Ngoro Ngoro Crater which I very much enjoyed and will highly recommend. The hotel made all the arrangements for the transportation, and tour guides and even packed a sack of lunch for us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms at the hotel were always clean. I also enjoyed the delicious multicourse meals that were prepared daily. The manager of the hotel was also very professional and great with communication. I highly recommend Escarpment for anyone looking for a quiet, luxury hotel to stay in Arusha and experience the beautiful natural parks in the area.

Stayed 2 nights here as part of a safari. Staff and management was exceptional in making us feel at home and so very welcome. Food was a fabulous surprise every meal with so many good flavours. Rooms were so clean and fresh with an unreal classy charm that I never have seen before. Pool was clean with a fabulous view of lake Manyara. Maasi dancing and singing at miller time every night was really entertaining. The detail to uniqueness and cleanliness in our room was great. Clean clean clean describes this lodge. I’ll come back for sure.

We just recently stayed at the Escarpment lodge and we were very happy with everything. The Maasai welcomed you as soon as you got out of your vehicle. The staff escorted you into the reception area and gave you a tour of the main areas. The staff took you to your room which was absolutely beautiful. The view of the lake from our balcony was so pretty. The evening meal was outstanding and the staff were very attentive to our needs. They even entertained our 2 year old grandson while we finished up our meal. I would highly recommend the Escarpment Lodge to anyone.

After an eventful day in Lake Manyara National Park including the sighting of dozens of elephants in immediate proximity we were looking forward to the lodge. The location overseeing Lake Manyara is ideal, including a infinity pool that allows a view onto the lake. Yet, we did not use the pool as the water was turbid, while the jaccuzzi was clear. The mattresses on the lounge chairs were ripped and had to be requested separately, along with worn towels. The chalets, while in principle nice, showed some manitenance issues. The shower was not working properly, the trees and bushes required drimming, the toilet needed fixing. On the other hand, the food services were good and fast, personnel was friendly and attentive. Escarpment Lodge certainly has the potential to obtain 4 or 5 points, but needs to improve its maintenance.

Dear Beatrice M Thank you so much for choosing Escarpment Luxury Lodge as your destination of choice in Tanzania. We are pleased that you enjoyed our property and the services offered. What makes us so unique is our location. We are very close to 3 different national parks: Lake Manyara is 10 minutes away, Ngorongoro Crater is only 25 km away and Tarangire National Park is only one hour and a half away. This makes Escarpment Luxury Lodge the perfect base for vising the parks in this area. We wish you all the best and we look forward to your return soon. With kind regards Lusinda Nortje General Manager

I stayed at Escarpment Luxury Lodge for a couple of days and all I can remember and literally still stuck in my head is the view of Lake Manyara. The staff were amazing and very supportive. I managed to do some safari nature walk with Masai just to get familiar with surroundings. I highly recommend this place especially if you are in transit during your safari this is definitely the place to stay as its about 45 minutes to Ngorongoro Main Gate.

We spent a wonderful three nights at Escarpment Lodge in Manyara. The best thing had to be the views, an infinity pool overlooks Lake Manyara and your room has windows surrounding the majority of the walls. You can have a bath in the tub or shower off in your private outdoor shower while watching a family of monkeys walk by your room. The lodge also has a very private atmosphere, great food and amazing staff! While staying at the lodge we enjoyed a safari to Ngorongoro crater, a beautiful Maasai-guided nature walk, massages and evening entertainment. I highly recommend staying here on your trip to Tanzania! Five stars!
