Migunga Forest Camp


... is a simple tented camp is set in woodland between the town of Mto wa Mbu and the northeast shore of Lake Manyara in Northern Tanzania.

+ relatively low cost
+ pleasant forest setting to the northeast of the lake
+ lovely owners
+ walks in immediate area
+ private vehicles
+ reliable game-viewing
+ great birding

- modest lodge construction
- very close to the village
- unreliable levels of service
- open to vehicles from different safari companies
- busy main road access to the park entrance gate
- very high traffic in parts of the reserve
- limited area for safari
- relatively low predator sightings
- no off-road driving

The camp itself pleasant enough, with around twenty decent tents encircling a simple restaurant and bar area in a lovely glade of mature acacia forest.

Activities include vehicle safaris into Lake Manyara national park, plus visits to the local village, but perhaps the highlight are the walks or bike rides down to the lake shore, where zebras and giraffes can often be seen amongst the Maasai herds.

Although Migunga Forest Camp is a reasonable and well-priced little place, we tend to recommend it to our guests relatively rarely, but please do feel free to ask.
