Lake Manyara National Park

Tucked below the majesty of the Rift Valley wall, Lake Manyara National Park is a thin green band of forest, flanked on one side by the sheer 600 metre high red and brown cliffs of the escarpment and on the other by the white-hot shores of an ancient soda lake.

This wedge of surprisingly varied vegetation supports a wealth of wildlife, nourished by the streams flowing out of the escarpment base and waterfalls spilling over the cliffs. Acacia woodland shelters the park's famous tree-climbing lions, lying languidly among the branches in the heat of the day. Feeding in the undergrowth or dozing in the dry river beds are the country's densest populations of buffalo and elephant.

Deep in the south of the park, hot springs bubble to the surface as hippo wallow near the lake's sedge-lined borders. The park's dazzling variety of birds includes thousands of red-billed quelea flitting over the water, pelicans, cormorants and the pink streaks of thousands of flamingo. Manyara is the perfect location for an active safari - canoeing on the lake or mountain biking and abseiling outside the park's borders.

The dry season (July to October) is best for large mammals, while the wet season (November to June) is best for bird watching, waterfalls and canoeing.
