“An unexpectedly amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Our itinerary said we were going to "stop" here on our way to Gibbs Farm. We thought it would be a dinky, drive-through experience. We were so surprised at the density and diversity of animals we saw here, and easily could have spent even more time than we did!

Their credit card machine wasn't working when we arrived, so we all got sunburnt waiting outside in the parking lot. But once we got inside, we saw two kinds of monkeys, baboons, elephants, zebras, giraffes, wildebeest, cape buffalo, hippos, impalas and all kinds of birds! I think the two best things were 1) a day-old baby hippo, and 2) an elephant spraying himself from a little pool of water by the roadside.

Would go back every time I was in Tanzania... We liked this even more than the whole of Tarangire National Park!

“Lake Manyara National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Many of the birds and animals here are at a distance, so be sure to bring high quality binoculars and a camera with a good telephoto lens. As well, make sure that you have a knowledgeable guide. We used Warrior Trails, an excellent company, and asked for their most experienced guide (Jackson) who was excellent.

“Awesome setting to see wild life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We saw so many animals. We were within 10-20 meters of monkeys, baboons and elephants. Great park and a very nice setting. Very conducive to seeing wild life. We highly recommend this.

“3rd stop of Safari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Elephants so close that you could touch them. This was the 3rd stop of the safari so after the sarengeti and the crater this should have been first before the other 2 b/c they were amazing.
