Lake Manyara Day Trip
$250 per person
Lake Manyara Day Trip – Fascinating safari experience, as the park also features a ground-water forest, acacia tortilis woodland and hot springs called Maji Moto. Lake Manyara National Park is located in between Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, making it the ideal addition to any Northern Circuit safari. Early in the morning, we will collect you from your hotel in Arusha and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park encompasses the northwest bank and part of the alkaline Lake Manyara which itself rests in the Great Rift Valley. The park is perhaps best known for its flamingos, pelicans and cormorants but it is also the home for a few hundred other species of birds; it is therefore a paradise for ornithologists. Next to a great variety of birds, the “Big Game” can also be seen.
With a bit of luck you might see elephants in the wooded regions and with even more fortune the tree-climbing lions. Baboons and velvet monkeys are also found among the forested areas and in the more open spaces, giraffes nibble at the fresh leaves while the various types of antelopes common to the region browse for tasty shoots. After a picnic lunch, there will be more time for further wildlife game watching till evening drive back to Arusha.

Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara is one of Tanzania’s smaller national parks. Bordered to the west by a dramatic Great Rift Valley escarpment and to the east by the vast lake. The park is a narrow strip along the lake’s shores broken up by slivers of winding rivers with ten different ecosystems thriving within the borders. This small park which is famous for its resident birdlife (for most people by flamingos) and the notoriously evasive tree-climbing lions is a perfect day trip.
