The Best Time to Visit

Throughout the year, it is very easy to access this park, but it is usually best to go during the dry season, from June to October and January to February when the inner roads are dry and very passable.

The best time for viewing large mammals is in Lake Manyara National Park, and then bird watching can best be done during the wet season from November to December and from March to May.

Lake Manyara Highlights

Lake Manyara Animals: The park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect. The game drive includes plenty of wildebeests along with so many giraffes and buffaloes. In addition, a large number of zebras, impalas, warthogs, hippos, and waterbucks roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.

On the slopes of the escarpment, you may need to search a little hard for the tinny and renowned shy kirk’s dik-dik and klipspringer

 

Lake Manyara Birds: The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingos, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Often; you will be able to see huge flocks of pelicans and pink flamingos on the lake, while close to the park borders and floodplains you will enjoy views of many egrets, herons, spoonbills, and other waders.

Other interesting species will be viewed in the evergreen forests; for example, crowned eagles, crested guinea fowl, and the silvery cheeked hornbills.

 

Lake Manyara Vegetation: The park is located on the base of the Great Rift Valley Escapement. Within the vicinity of the lake are wide grassy flood plains and further, as you move away, are bands of mixed acacia woodlands. Leaving that aside, patches of captivating evergreen forests that are kept going by perennial groundwater springs from the base of the escarpment are next to the escarpment.
