Lake Manyara National Park

Explore the Scenic Beauty of Lake Manyara National Park with the Great Pelican Safari

Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is a scenic gem that offers an incredible diversity of landscapes and wildlife. From dense woodlands to expansive grasslands and the shimmering lake itself, this park provides a serene and picturesque setting for an unforgettable safari experience.

A Mosaic of Habitats

Lake Manyara National Park is renowned for its varied ecosystems. The park’s northern gate leads into a lush forest, home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Further in, the forest opens up into woodlands, grasslands, and marshes, before reaching the alkaline lake that gleams in the African sun. This diversity supports a wide range of wildlife, adapted to each unique environment within the park.

Birdwatcher’s Paradise

The park is a haven for bird enthusiasts, with over 400 species recorded. The highlight is the vibrant flamingo population that adorns the lake’s edge, creating a striking pink hue against the water. Pelicans, storks, and a myriad of waterfowl also contribute to the park’s avian spectacle, especially during the wet season when the water levels rise.

Home of the Tree-Climbing Lions

Among the unique attractions of Lake Manyara are its tree-climbing lions. These rare and magnificent creatures are often spotted draped over the branches of acacia trees, a peculiar and enchanting sight that captures the imagination of all who visit. The park also hosts elephants, giraffes, zebras, and a dense population of hippos, which can be seen at closer range than almost anywhere else in Tanzania.
