Lake Manyara Day Trip
Nestled at the foot of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park is a hidden gem for birdwatchers. This small but diverse park is home to over 400 bird species, making it a paradise for bird enthusiasts. From the vibrant pink hues of the flamingos to the soaring eagles and storks, Lake Manyara offers a kaleidoscope of avian wonders.
Ernest Hemingway remarked that this park had the loveliest lake in Africa, and he may have been right. The lake covers one-third of the park's size, and despite its high salt content, it is safe for animals to drink so it remains an essential life source for many animals in the area. It is also the prominent hangout spot for wild flocks of flamingos, and other bird life. However, truly unique to Lake Manyara National Park is its resident tree-climbing lions. Researchers have still not come to a conclusion as to why these lions habitually laze among the treetops, but nevertheless, it is an extraordinary sight to see.
Take a boat ride along the lake's tranquil waters and witness the unique sight of tree-climbing lions, a behaviour rarely seen elsewhere. Lake Manyara National Park is a true gem that showcases the incredible diversity of Tanzania's wildlife.
