Pumziko announces the grand opening of a brand new ecolodge and wellness retreat superbly located adjacent to two of Tanzania's most beloved natural wonders, Lake Manyara National Park and the wild Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Located on the edge of a mighty African cliff, Pumziko Safari & Wellness Lodge, is in a setting of exquisite beauty and tranquility. With it's remarkable location, Pumziko has the privilege of being the only lodge built in the raw, untamed bush at the heart of the Iraqw tribal homeland, an honor for which we are deeply grateful to the Iraqw. Here we're able to offer guided walking safaris just steps from our front door, and convenient jeep safaris to the best safari destinations in Northern Tanzania. Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and the Serengeti are all short, easy drives from Pumziko. And our close relationships with our tribal neighbors allow us to offer our guests unique cultural tours, including visits to our friends in the Iraqw villages, Maasai Boma and Hadza Bushmen villages.
