Situated en route to and from Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, Lake Manyara National Park is a compact game park with no fewer than five different vegetation zones and a vast variety of wildlife, making it a good, soft introduction to the safari experience. It is excellent for birdwatching and a good area to find elephant, flamingo, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion.
Manyara is a magical and scenic park with a horseshoe-shaped driving route through wooded pathways that wend between the banks of the alkaline soda water lake and the impressive rise of the Great Rift escarpment. At the northernmost aspect, close to the park gates, the forest and woodlands are fed by streams of fresh water, flowing through the porous volcanic rock. Further south, around Msasa River, the volcanic rock gives way to ancient, crystalline rock, creating impressive waterfalls down the Rift Valley escarpment.
Lake Manyara safari holidays with Abercrombie & Kent will provide expert guidance, insight and first-hand experience of this wonderful region.
