Lying at the base of the towering Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is a melting pot of diverse habitats that teem with a variety of fauna and flora.
Ancient mahogany trees play host to troops of monkeys that command the canopy, while the lush rainforest floor stirs with the wary movements of smaller creatures trying to keep out of sight. Colourful forest hornbills honk their opinions loudly, and dainty bushbuck make their way through the dark, dense undergrowth of the forest.
Conversely, the vast grassy floodplains swarm with buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds, and offer spectacular views across the lake to the jagged volcanic peaks that rise from the endless Maasai Steppes.
The shores of Lake Manyara are crowded with pink flamingos, pelicans, cormorants, and storks, while bloats of hippo snort and yawn in the shallows, while a narrow strip of dense acacia woodland is home to Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants.
