Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park

Things to do - general

Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.

The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.

A Lake Manyara safari is a fascinating experience, as the park also features a ground-water forest, Acacia tortilis woodland and hot springs called Maji Moto. Troops of several hundred olive baboons appear alongside Sykes monkey and short-eared galago. Cape clawless otter, Egyptian mongoose, hippo, and klipspringer are other park residents.
