Lodge & Campsite


African Sunrise Lodge & Campsite combines location, space and comfort with excellent game viewing in the nearby safari parks of Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire. It was purpose built with families in mind and consists of 6 large cottages and 4 detached tents. At 1250 metres above sea level, Sunrise sits directly on the edge of the Great Rift Valley with nothing but panoramic views all around.  

The lodge is 30 minutes from the main gate of Manyara, 60 minutes from the main gates of Ngorongoro and one and a half hours from Tarangire. Sunrise is the perfect place for the family to relax and to enjoy the beauty of Tanzania.
