Hippos the highlight

This was where saw our first hippos. Couple of different places to see them. Lots of other wildlife, especially birds. An interesting area to explore.

We saw lions, lots of flamingos, zebras and wildebeest. Baboons came raining out of the trees when a group of elephants approached. Hippos were seen along with cape buffaloes. Beautiful scenery along with amazing animals.

The grandeur of the scenery would be enough, but the wildlife you´ll experience will certainly transform you. Enjoy the beauty and magnificence!

We went to this park on the same day we arrived in Tanzania. It was a decent orientation to a safari experience, and we saw some wildlife there, but it honestly wasn't all that impressive as compared to the stuff in Serengeti. My advice- if you do have a lot of time and can spend a day going to Lake... More

This is a small park compared to Serengeti but i think it is worth visiting, there is a lot of vegetation and forest, many birds to the location of the lake and plenty of wildlife to see in the smaller park before reaching Serengeti.

Lake Manyara was the second stop on our four National Park Safari (after Tarangire and before Serengeti and Ngorongoro) This was by far our favourite National Park from the nature/landscape side of things (not necessarily wildlfie) as it has everything, from lush green forests to open plains, to an ENORMOUS lake. The drive is a beautiful one, surrounded by stunning... More

The drive through the lake area is beautiful. not only for the scenery and the animals surrounding the lake...including flamingos, but also because of the walls of the Rift Valley which come very close to the Lake in certain places. We really enjoyed riding through one of the villages at the end of the drive. As with other villages, we... More

We have booked this park last which allowed us to take our time and get amazing photos of all the birds this park had including some storks, Pelicans, Ibises, Ducks and geese. This is a one day park so need to plan accordingly.

Range of habitats in a fairly small area compared to some parks. Good mix of animals seen and bird life too. The signs for the loos are brilliant.
