Located on the way to the Serengeti, Lake Manyara National Park sits both in the Arusha and Manyara regions. Known widely for the flamingoes which inhabit the soda-lake, the park is definitely a great destination for bird lovers.
Why visit Lake Manyara National Park?
Other than the beautiful flamingos that inhabit the edges of Lake Manyara in flocks of thousands, there are also more than 400 species of birds which are resident in the park all year round.
Because of this, Lake Manyara National Park is an ideal spot for the bird watchers. Visitors to the park can expect to see upwards of 100 different species of birds flapping their wings against the sun-drenched sky any day.
On one end of the park lies a nicely placed hippo pond where the park visitors can literally walk closer, but a cautious distance to observe the hippos.
The famous tree-climbing lions are known to lounge in the trees while not hunting for prey. The only kind of their species in the world, they make the ancient mahogany and elegant acacias their home during the rainy season.
The national park is also home to the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world — a fact that accounts for interesting game viewing of large families of the primates.
