Lake Manyara National Park


Lake Manyara National Park



Lake Manyara NP is a small park at the base of the Rift Valley escarpment. Its groundwater forest offers a nice change of scenery from the more savannah-dominated parks. Although the park is known for tree-climbing lions, big cats aren’t that easily seen. Elephant are prolific and are the main attraction.

Pros & Cons

Very relaxed elephants to view at close quarters

Stunning scenery

Superb birding

Near Arusha and en route to Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti

Gets crowded in the afternoons during peak season (June and July and October to April)


This park is known for its large elephant population. The big cats are present, but not seen that easily. The forest patch is home to habituated troops of olive baboon and blue monkey. Buffalo, giraffe and several antelope species are easily encountered on a drive.
