hardly any game except baboons and some birds. Did not see a single tree lion for which the park is famous for. Very disappointed.

We went to Lake Manyara after visiting the other places, and it's just not as exciting as the Serengeti, or as beautiful as the Ngorongoro crater. They have a lot of cool birds there, a variety of monkeys, and the lake is beautiful with some nice vistas, but you just don't see as many animals here. It may have been a better place to go first, as it felt lackluster when we visited as our last destination. I would have rather spent another day in the Serengeti rather than stopping here.

Great place to see birds in their natural environment- especially flamingos and pelicans. Also can see lots of herd animals drinking at the watering hole. Wasn't lucky enough to see the climbing lions- hopefully next time.

The last day in Lake Manyara was sort of anticlimactic as we didn’t see too much up close. There were more animals and variety at the other game parks.

We were able to see, up close, a multitude of wildlife.

Limited wildlife viewing. If you are only in Tanzania one day, this might be ok for a day trip, but as far as a safari destination, I’d go for the bigger parks.
