Lake Manyara National Park

Nestled below the dramatic Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara was flattered by Hemingway as “the loveliest lake I had ever seen in Africa”. It is one of Tanzania's smaller national parks but offers a compact game-viewing circuit with a great diversity of habitats, animals and birds. At the foot of the 600 meter high Rift Valley escarpment a well maintained road insinuates through a jungle-like forest, home to many baboons and Blue Monkeys.

From the acacia woodland it continues into the grass floodplains, ending at the shores of the shallow soda lake that attracts flocks of pelicans, flamingos and other species of water birds. The south, which is home to the legendary tree climbing lions, is relatively unexplored but definitely worth a visit for those who are able to spend a full day in this lovely national park.

    What to do and what to see in Lake Manyara National Park

  • Game drive - explore the varied game and rich birdlife with over 400 species of birds
  • Night safari - Lake Manyara is currently the only national park in Tanzania where you can go on a captivating night game drive in search of the nocturnal animals
  • Hot Springs Boardwalk way - Enjoy unique views of the steamy Hot Springs, marshland and the Hippo Pool from a freestanding observation platform right in the lake. The boardwalk is a 300 meters long wooden structure located in the southern part of the park.
  • Cycling Safari - although not possible within the park boundaries, the direct surroudings of Lake Manyara offer thousands of miles of biking trails to explore
