Lake Manyara National Park

Located on the way to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, Lake Manyara National Park is worth a stop in its own right. Its ground water forests, bush plains, baobab strewn cliffs, and algae-streaked hot springs offer incredible ecological variety in a small area rich in wildlife and incredible numbers of birds.

Lake Manyara’s famous tree-climbing Lions and home to the largest concentration of Baboons anywhere in the world- a fact that accounts for interesting game viewing of large families of the primates.

The alkaline soda of Lake Manyara is home to an incredible array of birdlife. More than 400 birds have been recorded, including flocks of Pelicans, Pink Flamingos, Herons, Egrets, Stilts, Stalks, Spoonbills, silvery-cheeked Hornbills, Crowned Eagles and Crested Guinea Fowl.
