Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara, located in the northern part of Tanzania, is a national park and wildlife conservation area, one of popular safari locations in Tanzania.

It has a rich variety of wildlife and over 400 species of birds. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingoes on their perpetual migration, as well as other large waterbirds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks.

The park is also famous for it's tree climbing lions, as well as for it's dramatic scenery, surrounded by hills and with a soda lake in the middle of the park.

Brief History of Lake Manyara National Park
Contrasting with the surrounding forest is the grassy floodplain and its expansive views eastward, across the alkaline lake, to the jagged blue volcanic peaks that rise from the endless Maasai Steppes. Large buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds congregate on these grassy plains, as do giraffes – some so dark in coloration that they appear to be black from a distance.

Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favoured haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and elephants. Gangs of banded mongoose dart between the acacias, while the diminutive Kirk’s dik-dik forages in their shade. Pairs of klipspringer are often seen silhouetted on the rocks above a field of searing hot springs that steams and bubbles adjacent to the lakeshore in the far south of the park.
