Lake Manyara National Park is one of the smaller national parks in Tanzania but still offers beautiful landscapes and is home to an interesting collection of wildlife. The lake itself is a soda lake/alkaline lake and reaches a maximum depth of 3.7 m. The vegetation changes from groundwater forests to flood plains and finally to acacia wood plains.
For bird enthusiasts, this park is truly rewarding as it is home to over 400 species of birds. Other inhabitants of the park include elephants, buffaloes, hippos, baboons, waterbucks, impalas, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeests. The park has an abundant population of leopards but sightings are rare due to the thick vegetation. With a bit of luck, visitors can catch a glimpse of the renowned “tree climbing” lions.
Day trip to Lake Manyara National Park
Early morning Pick up from Arusha town and drive to Lake Manyara National Park 120km from Arusha. This Park is one of the most diverse of Tanzania’s national parks; it is only 325km ², the combination of Rift Valley Lake, dense woodlands and steep mountainside. Lake Manyara is a bird's paradise with more than 400 species, especially waterfowl, the pink-hued flamingos, spoonbills, stilts, egrets, pelicans, cormorants, and yellow-billed storks and many migrant’s birds. The park is famous for its tree-climbing lions, but also for its boisterous baboons.
Although this is a small park, with much of it underwater, it is a varied environment with typical fig and mahogany trees prevalent here. You could easily find elephant, hippo, wildebeest, buffalo, and giraffe, plus many other species. Enjoy a remarkable one-day trip to Lake Manyara national park that includes wildlife-viewing and an opportunity to learn about the everyday lifestyle of Tanzanian villagers. Late evening, drive back to Arusha.
