Dining at Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge

The spacious dining room at our luxury lodge in Tanzania features an interior bar area, a central buffet and both inside and outside seating. Presented in typical Maasai style, it features the use of swirling primary colours on textured white walls, which are embellished with traditional Masai beadwork, gourds and leatherwork.

Breakfast and lunch

Breakfast and lunch are presented in buffet-style and feature a wide range of international choices. In typical safari style, we offer a ‘full English Breakfast' as well as European options while our lunch menus will typically include meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options.


Our table d'hôte dinner menus feature a salad buffet, soup, entrée, pudding, cheese and biscuits and tea or coffee. Vegetarian options are always available. The majority of our meat and dairy products, as well as our fruits and vegetables are sourced from the communities that surround the Lake Manyara National Park.

Wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks

Our wine list offers a broad selection of old- and new-world wines, and local and imported beers and spirits. We also offer a wide range of soft drinks including an array of freshly-made local fruit juices. We serve only the finest Tanzanian coffee and tea; we also offer a wide range of fruit and herbal infusions.

Bush dining

We are expert in arranging breakfasts, lunches, dinners and cocktails in the bush. We have a number of dedicated sites, which are typically presented with tables, safari chairs, ‘bush bar' and a ‘bush kitchen', where a broad range of meats, poultry, fish and vegetables are cooked on-site (supplemented by fresh soups, salads and puddings from our hotel kitchens). In the evenings, ‘sun-downer' cocktails are traditionally served around a campfire and can be followed by a lamp-lit ‘bush dinner' for a unique safari experience in Tanzania.

Special events

Our luxury Lake Manyara safari lodge also features an outside dining area, which is reached by a lantern-lit pathway along the cliff's edge. Here, in a grassy clearing overlooking the lake, atmospheric evening cocktails and outdoor BBQs are held and the area can also be hired for private parties. This is also the venue for displays of cultural dance and music, which are usually held after supper.
Private ‘sundowners' can also be arranged in an area to the rear of the lodge, where a private bar, campfire, and lamps can be located.
