With its sparkling soda lake, steep mountain scenery and dense woodlands Lake Manyara National Park offers a unique wilderness experience with varied terrain supporting diverse habitats.
The National Park was established to protect elephants and it now boasts a large population. The area is also famed for its unusual tree-climbing lions. There are also large herds of buffalo as well as cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala.
The lake shores can often be seen covered in large flocks of pink flamingos, and more than 400 other species of bird have been recorded here.
