Lake Manyara National Park
Manyara occupies 320 square km, but 231 square km of these are made up of its vast alkaline lake, which attracts wide flocks of pink flamingos.
Lake Manyara National Park is a small but scenic safari park, excellent for bird watching and a good area to find elephant, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion. Lake Manyara National Park is ideally suited for a few hour’s exploring and wildlife watching at the start of a safari and/or a morning at the end, as it lies on route to and from Ngorongoro and the Serengeti.

Elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings in the woodlands or heading towards water sources to drink or wash. The rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for wildlife watching. Warthog seem to thrive here, growing notably fat and it is a natural playground for baboons and monkeys.
The tree-climbing lion of Lake Manyara inspire extensive theorising as to the wonders of evolution, and are also rarely seen.
