Experience Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania
Lake Manyara National Park is the perfect location for an active safari-canoeing on the lake or mountain biking and abseiling outside the park’s borders. The park is tucked below the majesty of the Rift Valley wall and it consist of a thin green band of forest, flanked by the sheer 600m high red and brown cliffs of the escarpment on one side and by the white-hot shores of an ancient soda lake on the the other.
The wedge of surprisingly varied vegetation supports a wealth of wildlife, nourished by the streams flowing out of the the escarpment base and waterfalls spilling over the cliffs. Acacia woodland shelters the park’s baboons as well as the famous tree-climbing lions, lying languidly among the branches in the undergrowth or dozing in the dry riverbed is the country dense populations of buffalo and elephant. Deep in the south of the park, hot springs bubble to the surface as hippo wallow near the lakes sedge lined borders. The part’s dazzling variety of birds includes thousands of red-billed Quelea fitting over the water, pelicans, cormorant and the pink streaks of thousands of flamingos. The dry season (July to October) is the best for large mammals, while the wet season (November to June) is best for bird-watching, waterfalls and canoeing.
