Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara lies in the Great Rift Valley and is one of the most beautiful places in Africa. Dramatically bordered by lush green vegetation, upon entering the park you will become immediately captivated by large troops of baboons and blue monkeys swinging from the trees.

At a glance:

- A rich, diverse area of natural beauty with forests, woodlands, grassland and swamps.

- The soda lake itself is home to 350 species of birds including flamingos, pelicans, sacred ibisses, grebes and storks – it’s easy to see why Lake Manyara is commonly referred to as “the bird watcher’s paradise”.

- Tree climbing lions spend their days lazily relaxing along the branches of acacia trees 6 – 8 metres above the ground.

- The park is also home to numerous buffalos, elephants, giraffes, impalas, hippos and a number of smaller animals, which can all be seen in a single day.
