‘Sundowners’ on the escarpmentThe lodge has a selection of sundowner venues, both on the escarpment edge and in Lake Manyara National Park itself.
An essential part of traditional safari life, the concept of having drinks whilst watching the sun go down dates back to the time of the great safaris of the 1920's, all of which featured the serving of elegant ‘bush' cocktails against the unforgettable backdrop of the African sunset.
Timed to commence as the sun starts its descent, which on the Equator is usually around 6 pm, the Manyara sundowner begins either with a gentle stroll or drive to the chosen spot where chairs, lamps, campfire and bush bar with cocktail snacks will already have been set up. Musical entertainment can also be provided.
Magical, memorable and romantic, the sundowner is an experience not to be missed.
