Lake Manyara National Park

Thanks to its location on the edge of the Rift Valley Lake Manyara National Park offers most idyllic scenery. Moreover it contains five vegetation zones: ground-water forest, marshland and reed beds, open grasslands and acacia woodlands. At the same time, this great variety of vegetations provides habitats to many different animals: elephant, giraffe, zebra, lions, blue monkeys, baboons, hippos and over 350 bird species.

The park derives its name from a plant called Euphorbia tirucalli, known as Emanyara in Maasai language and covers an area of around 650 km2.

Lake Manyara National Park offers a range of exciting activities including day game drives, walking safaris, night game drive, canoeing and bird watching

Manyara has one of the longest tree canopy walkways in Africa with intermittent viewing decks positioned around the trees on the walk. This canopy offers a unique view of birds, butterflies and Monkeys.
