Lake Manyara National Park

Day Trip

The park is a perfect place to start your Tanzania safari experience. Located en-route from Arusha to Ngorongoro. Despite the rather small strip of land, Lake Manyara won’t let you down when it comes to wildlife spotting.

Come here for a game drive, and you might catch a glimpse of the park’s famous tree-climbing lions or experience a close encounter with the vast herds of elephants that roam the plains. At the shores of its Rift Valley soda lake, you’ll find flocks of pink flamingos, more than 400 species of birds, and large herds of buffalo, Masai giraffe, and impala.

The day begins with your hotel pick up and trip briefing in the morning at Arusha City, followed by a pleasant drive westward to Lake Manyara National Park. Before your doorstep to the park, you’ ll have a convenient stopover at Mto wa Mbu “a melting pot of local cultures and a souvenir hunter’s paradise”, to bustle with authentic cultural interactions.

As you drive into the interior of ever green park, keep your eyes peeled for tree climbing lions. These proudly predators lounge in Acacia trees while not hunting for prey but practically begging to be photographed, also try to spot other mammals including elephants, blue monkeys, dik-dik, gazelles, Maasai giraffe, impalas, zebras. The novice can expect to be amazed by thousands of pink flamingo flocks on their perpetual migration as well as other birds like brightly coloured lilac breasted rollers, circling birds of prey  e. t. c

Thereafter, you will have a delicious picnic lunch. After your safari tour with a professional guide, you will be dropped back to Arusha town for Dinner and Overnight stay at your hotel around 18.00 hours.
