1 Day Excursions to Lake Manyara National Park

Pick up from Arusha town and drive to Lake Manyara National Park 120km from Arusha. This Park is one of the most diverse of Tanzania’s national parks; it is only 325km ², combination of Rift Valley Lake, dense woodlands and steep mountainside. Manyara is a bird paradise with more than 400 species, especially waterfowl, the pink-hued flamingos, spoonbills, stilts, egrets, pelicans, cormorants and yellow-billed storks and many migrant’s birds. It is rightly famous for its tree-climbing lions, but also for its boisterous baboons.

Although this is a small park, with much of it underwater, it is a varied environment with typical fig and mahogany trees prevalent here. You could easily find elephant, hippo, wildebeest, buffalo and giraffe, plus many other species. Enjoy a remarkable one-day trip in Lake Manyara national park that includes wildlife-viewing and an opportunity to learn about the everyday lives of Tanzanian villagers. Late evening, drive back to Arusha.
