Rift Valley Photographic Lodge is located in the world-renowned Rift Valley and surrounded by the most sought after photographic safari destinations. The lodge is set high, in a bush-cloaked ridge, with magnificent views over Lake Manyara.
Rift Valley Lodge provides visitors with an ideal base to explore the Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, Lake Natron and Engaruka Ruins for the most extraordinary holiday where everything that is Africa, converges in a beautiful display. Rift Valley Lodge stands centre-stage to one of Africa’s most dramatic wildlife arenas, providing visitors with ringside seats for the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth’.
Rift Valley Lodge is designed according to the circular motif of a traditional Masai village offering international sophistication with raw African beauty.
