Lake Manyara NP is an outstanding landmark nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment. The park contains a diverse range of habitats and topographical features, ranging from groundwater forest, acacia woodlands and open grasslands to the shores of Lake Manyara and the soda lake itself.
The park is noted for its numerous buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, impalas, hippos and provides sanctuary to a great variety of smaller animals. A famous spectacle in the park are the tree climbing lions.
We depart Arusha from your hotel at 7:30 after breakfast and drive 126 km to Lake Manyara NP with our Lunch box.

From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where many baboons lounge nonchalantly along the roadside.
