Discover Lake Manyara National Park

The lions climbing the tree, massive bison, wildebeest, primates, blue monkeys, elephants, and an amazing prelude to Tanzania’s birdlife make this magnificent park a must-see. Lake Manyara is a pleasant pearl that stretches for 50 kilometers along the 600-meter Crack Valley slope corroded gold foundation, with a setting described by Ernest Hemingway as “the most lovely I’ve found in Africa.” It’s made up of a sparse green backwoods band and the white-hot shores of an abandoned soft drink lake. Streams flowing out of the slopes’ foundations and cascades pouring over the precipice support an array of natural life in this wedge of radically different vegetation.

It has the best collection of bird species, with over 400 species identified and up to 100 of them included in a single datum. Their annual migration involves a large number of pink-toned flamingos, as well as large water birds such as pelicans, cormorants, and storks. The key tree-climbing lions of the community center are sanctuaries in the Acacia forest, lying in the warmth of the day in the middle of the trees. The densest bison and elephant populations in the area are found in the undergrowth or resting in dry riverbeds.
