Lake Manyara National park is a serenely beautiful vibrantly verdant forest teeming with wildlife, including tree-climbing lions, and an abundance of elephants which Ian Douglas Hamilton, the famous Scottish explorer and naturalist, studied extensively to provide the world with a great deal of elephant behavioural research fifty years ago.
Lake Manyara is an alkaline lake and often hosts thousands of flamingos, along with a diverse array of other bird life, including the endemic silvery cheeked hornbill, but also the super rare bar tailed trogon, the holy grail of the birding world.
Expect to see a great number of hippos that love bathing in the shallow salty water of the lake where they spend their day quietly snoozing in a great big pod near the boardwalk, a long wooden walk way that lets visitors climb out of the safari car to stretch their legs and walk out across the lake without getting wet to get close as possible to the sleeping animals from a position of perfect safety.
