Lake Manyara National Park is nestled between the rock formations of the Great Rift Valley.
When you drive into the National Park, you can imagine yourself in a tropical jungle full of monkeys, waterfalls, babbling brooks and crystal clear water and hot springs. The road leads you on through the forest to open grasslands, woods, marshes and eventually Lake Manyara. The park is home to large herds of elephants, buffalos, impalas, hippos, giraffes and a wide variety of small animals.The park is also known for the tree-climbing lions.
Thousands of flamingos can be found on the shores of the lake. Together with the nearly 500 other species of birds this park is a must see for bird lovers.
