Had a very nice evening safari here, we did not get to see the tree climbing lions but we had seen plenty in the Serengeti so were not disappointed. Infact we saw a herd of elephants, they crossed right in front of our safari vehicle, and there was a little baby elephant. The male stopped by our car for about... More

We were lucky to see a beautiful Cheetah posing on a hill and had a herd of elephants travel by our land rover. Very up close and personal views of the animals.

This isn't Serengeti or Ngorongoro so you won't see the gigantic herds of animals like those places. However, Lake Mantra has a special charm to it. I am glad I visited it before going to Ngorongoro as I might have felt disappointed by. It's charming and I saw quite a few animals in a small expanse. If you have to... More

We visited Lake Manyara a day after seeing Ngorongoro Crater, and compared to that, it felt a little anti-climactic. That said, Lake Manyara is a fine park in its own right. There's a good mix of forest and open field land to see. The open land has large herds of zebras and wildebeests, along with quite a few impalas. In... More

We loved our time in the Lake Manyara National Park. I'm not sure why the title of this includes "Full-Day". We didn't spend a full day there. Just a few hours and it was great. We didn't drive too far before our vehicle was completely surrounded by a family of elephants (within a few feet) and a large troop of... More

While it doesn't match up to Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater National Parks, Lake Manyara National Park is still well worth the time. We visited the Park with our own car and my husband drove (no guide, we do have a big 4WD truck) and had our 15-month old son with us. The roads were generally easy enough to drive on,... More

We saw so many animals I couldn't count them all. We saw lions, giraffe, elephants, gazelles, baboons. We even witnessed elephants doing a mating ritual, almost to much info!!

We enjoyed a great day in Manyara, the lake was filled with flamingo, many hippos around, and of course, monkeys everywhere to give us a show. The day was filled with sunshine and wildlife.

On our visit we experienced the most amazing group of giraffes and a back drop of flying and swimming flamingoes. It is one of my most favorite memories of giraffes in Africa

As you travel straight to Serengeti, the view of manyara is extreemely spectacular, I wished i would be able to send picture, Manyara is a great place one should visit, from river manayar where animals gather for drinking water, this is were you will enjoy visiting manyara, there is truly natural wild life. I tell you, you will never regret
