Pumziko Safari Lodge

Pumziko Safari Lodge is an exceptional safari lodge overlooking the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara, located within an easy distance to Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha, Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, Tarangire and other exciting Tanzanian attractions.

Pumziko is a Swahili word meaning a place that relaxes you, and is the theme throughout the property. Five luxurious and spacious private guest houses dot the property and surround the main lodge building. The guest houses are designed for supreme relaxation and are situated to provide incredible views - even from the beds! Guest rooms feature plush beds, extra large baths, outside elephant showers, indoor bamboo tree showers, all natural spa products, custom African furniture and art, large private decks with stunning views and a sitting area with a porch jungle swing!


The main lodge building offers personal guest services, a sunken fireplace with sitting area, as well as an indoor/outdoor bar, a gift shop, upstairs observation deck with a telescope for out of this world views day or night, cozy sitting area, an open kitchen and three dining room options. The open-air dining room inside is next to our oversized fireplace for the cooler nights, dine upstairs on our open air observation deck or outside on our large patio and is an exquisite place to enjoy views or a sundowner cocktail and watch the African sun set over the soaring cliffs of the Rift Valley. In the evenings, guests will enjoy a 5 course dinner before being escorted to our large outdoor fire pit, where local tribesmen entertain with traditional African songs and dances (offered seasonal).
