Safety

Travelling to and around Lake Manyara National Park can be done safely in our opinion, as is the case with most parks. You’ll usually meet tourists and people who work for the tour operator, parks and lodging during your visit.

Malaria & Vaccinations

Health concerns include malaria, so mosquito repellent with at least 30% DEET is a must and it’s also wise to cover exposed skin in the evening. You should seriously consider taking antimalarial medication too. Several vaccinations are also recommended, which you should arrange before your trip to Africa.

Wildlife Viewing

Viewing wild animals means certain safety risks are present. These risks can be greatly reduced by following the advice of your guide. More safety recommendations are available in the ‘wildlife viewing safety precautions' below.
