Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park Located beneath the cliffs of the Great Rift Valley, with a variety of landscapes……

 Lake Manyara National Park offers a compact safari experience that gives visitors the chance to see everything from the vibrant Pink Flamingos to the fearsome king of the jungle – the African Lion.


This National Park is home to a very large number of Elephant, which can easily be seen within the evergreen forests, as well as the acacia woodlands. The high amount of ground water and abundant vegetations provide adequate grounds to feed these majestic forest giants.


Lake Manyara is also famous for its Tree-Climbing Lion. The only kind of their species in the world, they make the ancient mahogany and elegant acacias of the park their home during the rainy season.


In addition to these unique Lions, the park is also home to the largest population of Baboons anywhere in the world – a fact that makes for interesting game viewing, for anyone interested in seeing large families of primates.

Besides the traditional way of viewing wildlife in Lake Manyara National Park, the Tree-Top Canopy Walk also offers another unique way to view Tanzania's incredible animals. Walking at tree top height, you'll experience as really special way to view the birdlife and other primates.
