Lake Manyara National Park
Situated in the northern part of Tanzania, 126 kilometres west of Arusha Town, Lake Manyara National Park is one of the countries smaller parks. The area is well known for its tree-climbing lions and the lake is home to over 300 migratory birds that include greater and lesser flamingoes, and a number of endangered species.
Lake Manyara National Park provides good all year round viewing for wildlife, though the best time to visit is during the dry season that runs from late June to September. The wet season peaks from March to May, making roads harder to travel, though this is a good time for bird watching as many migratory birds are found during this time.
The game includes plenty of elephants, wildebeest, giraffes, buffalo, zebras, impala, warthog and waterbuck. It also provides a good habitat for lions and large troops of baboons.
