LAKE MANYARA SERENA LODGE

Taking as its muse the glorious bird life of the fabulously soda-encrusted and pink-flamingo fringed Lake Manyara, the swooping curves of this elegantly evocative lodge defy description. As do the soaring views over the Great Rift Valley, the rose-gold sunsets over the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and the utterly unique tree climbing lions at Lake Manyara National Park.
