Lake Manyara National Park Safari Tanzania Tour
Size: 330 km²
Location: 128 km west of Arusha.
Lake Manyara National Park lies directly below the Great Rift Valley. It is unique is its wide variety of different vegetation. Near the entrance of the park you’ll experience a very scenic ground-water forest, which then gives way to an acacia forest with thick bush and then to open grassland. The lake, which gives its name to the park, occupies about two thirds of the park. The park is famous for it’s “tree lions” which have become Tanzania Safari accustomed to resting or sleeping up in the trees. Also to be found in the park are large herds of buffalo, impala, baboon, as well as giraffe and, most of the time, elephants. To the delight of ornithologist enthusiasts, more than 400 different bird species are concentrated here. Another special attraction are the hot springs, called maji moto (hot water) in Kisuaheli.
