Lake Manyara National Park

Ernest Hemingway described the setting of Lake Manyara National Park as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”, and when you see it for yourself youll understand why. Lush forests, bush plains, cliffs and hot springs make for a scenic idyll and give you a tantalizing glimpse into all that the Tanzanian safari experience has to offer.

Hippo Pool, Flamingos & Other Birds of Lake Manyara National Park

Stop off on the way to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, and the diverse ecosystems, stunning bird life and breathtaking views wont disappoint. The alkaline shores of Lake Manyara are the perfect place to see a carnival of pink flamingos in their thousands, dramatic flecks of color against the volcanic backdrop. When yellow-billed storks and herons join the party, even the most reluctant bird-watcher will marvel at the display.

Lake Manyara National Park’s Tree Climbing Lions & Other Wildlife

The national park is also home to the worlds largest concentration of baboons, and countless blue monkeys that scamper between the trees. The grassy floodplain is a gathering ground for large buffalo, wildebeest, zebras and giraffes, and further inland you might even be rewarded with the rare sight of Lake Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions – the only kind of their species in the world.

Wito's Top Pick - Accommodation in Lake Manyara National Park

andBeyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

For clients who want a more luxury exotic experience, we often recommend these stilted treehouse suites, raised above the floor of a mahogany forest in Lake Manyara National Park. We love the spacious decks and large windows, giving a feeling of being right in the heart of the great outdoors, combined with the exclusivity of a private suite. If you’re not sure about the outdoor shower, each of the bathrooms also offers a freestanding bath. This is also a great choice for clients who enjoy a bit of culinary exploration, as they can observe the preparation of tasty traditional dishes in the central kitchen area.
