Lake Manyara National Park is the cradled in the glory of its surroundings below the sheer majesty of the Rift Valley wall, Lake Manyara lies serene, spreading in a heat haze backed by a thin green band of forest and the sheer 600 metre red and brown cliffs of the escarpment.
Hippo wallow near the lake‘s borders of sedge. The park hosts 400 varieties of birds, including thousands of red-billed quelea flitting over the water like swarms of giant insects; pelicans, cormorants, and pink streaks of thousands of flamingo on their perpetual migration.
The park is excellent for photographic safaris, night game drives, walking safaris outside the park boundaries, cultural safaris. Exciting night drives!
