Lake Manyara

Lake Manyara National Park, named after the Wild Sisal that grows in the area, is dominated by the soda lake that extends over an area of 230 sq Km, or a third of the total area of the park.

The park is a complex and exciting one; the ever-changing vegetation which starts with thick forests of mahogany, fig trees and wild mango, fed by tens of underground streams which drain the Ngorongoro Highlands, provide a haven for colourful birds, monkeys and shy dwarf antelopes, and open up in to woodland, a favourite for elephants and impala, and then unfolds in to open savannah, teeming with herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffes… before spilling in to Lake Manyara, home to hundreds of thousands of water birds including flamingos and pelicans.

This means that you never know what to expect- every corner taken brings endless possibilities… you could end up at the Hot Springs, or perhaps at the hippo pools, or if you are lucky, you could chance upon the park’s famous tree-climbing lions!
