Game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater
Following an early morning breakfast, and leaving in plenty of time to capture the best views of the Crater as the mist begins to lift, your Ngorongoro Crater Tour will be certainly a day to remember.

A large, unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera is the pride of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago is "a natural enclosure" for a very wide variety of wildlife, there is a resident population of Ngorongoro lions, as well as wildebeest, buffalo, zebra and rhino.

The Ngorongoro Crater, a large, unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera is the pride of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, is 610 m (2,000 ft) deep and its floor covers 260 km2 (100 sq mi). Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from fifteen to nineteen thousand feet (4500 to 5800 metres) high.

Lunches on the Ngorongoro Crater floor
Your full day safari experience would not be complete without enjoying a delicious campaign style luncheon, served under canopy at one of the picnic areas in the Crater. Surrounded by game and the crater rim beyond, this is the most dramatic and beautiful picnic lunch you ever likely to take.

A Game Drive in Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara is a shallow lake in the Natron-Manyara-Balangida branch of the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania. Said by Ernest Hemingway to be the "loveliest [lake] ... in Africa," it is also the home of a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife.

The name Manyara comes from the Maasai word emanyara, which is a euphorbia species of plant that is grown into a hedge around a family homestead (Euphorbia tirucalli).

The name "is a Masai description not for the lake, but in general for a lake shore region."

Of the 127 square miles (329 km2) of Lake Manyara National Park, the lake's alkaline waters (with a pH near 9.5[4]) cover approximately 89 square miles (231 km2), though the area and pH fluctuate widely with the seasons, and dry spells expose large areas of mud flats. While most known for baboons, the lake and its environs is also home to herbivores such as hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes.

Giant fig trees and mahogany seen in the groundwater forest immediately around the park gates draw nourishment from the underground springs replenished continuously from crater highlands directly above the Manyara basin. Leading away from the forest to the fringes of Lake Manyara are the flood plains. To the south are visible the acacia woodlands. Leopards, although in abundance, are hard to get a glimpse of, just like the other elusive carnivores - the lions - of this park.

Horse Riding Around the Coffee Estate
The Manor is blessed with excellent stables and horses to match.

A most enjoyable way to take in the environ of The Manor is to take to the saddle and be taken on a one hour long trek around the hills that embrace the Manor. Our instructor will guide you and even though it is not required that you have riding experience, we feel all riders will enjoy all that is on view.

Manor Estate Picnic and Horse Ride
Enjoy the wonders of a guided romantic horse ride plus the added luxury of a picnic lunch served in the grounds of The Manor.

The Executive Chef will prepare a sumptuous picnic basket, tailored to your requirements, and you will be attended, discreetly, by one of the Manor's personal attendants.

Mountain Biking
Feeling active? This is definitely a ride to remember. The hills that The Manor sit atop are perfect for those up and downhill rides that both thrill and invigorate.

You will cycle with a guide and he will ask beforehand exactly how much easy or arduous cycling you would like.

From there it’s all down hill!

Sundowner Cocktails at the Manor
The Manor, famed for it beautiful gardens, it the perfect haven to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing sunset. Overlooking the coffee-laden hills that surround the Manor, the views to the adjacent rolling hills are a vista to behold.

Cocktails are provided by our friendly and attentive staff.

Relaxing Massage - Deep Tissue
True deep tissue massage can be one of the most therapeutic and healing massages. Although not as rhythmic as other massage types, deep tissue massage interacts the most with the body's muscle groups. Sore and tired muscles often become revived and energized feeling as if they have had a strenuous yet impactful workout
