Lake Manyara Nation Park is absolutely breathtaking!
Overall rating
5/5

Lake Manyara was my first introduction to African wildlife outside of a zoo setting. I was in awe. The variety and numbers of animals we saw was great. The scenery was beautiful & diverse - wooded areas full of monkeys & birds, wetlands and vast open plains each had a unique experience to offer.

This was one of the few places to see flamingos and they were my favorite part. The water almost looked completely pink because there were so many flamingos.

Hard to see wildlife at the park. Known for flamingos but I have never seen them here.

Lake Manyara was definitely beautiful, but there is not much wildlife, other than baboons and hippos.

We really enjoyed the Hippo's and the massive number of Pelicans, Storks and Herons on the lake, what a great sight! But also the Baboons, Lions, Elephants and other animals in the bush were great sightings. Although it is a somewhat smaller park it was perfect for our first park of our first Safari.

Paradisiacal experience at lake Manyara
Overall rating
4/5

In april 2014 I went on a game view at Lake Manyara. The day before we went to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Although Ngorongoro was very beautiful, I even liked Lake Manyara more! Lake Manyara is a smaller but very nice park, where animals suddenly show up from between the trees. That was very awesome. A lot of variety in animals and beautiful birds, wide vast land as a viewpoint (with giraffes, flamingos, impalas, zebras, hippos...), a very quiet safari because of low season (which was very nice to be almost alone), flock of elephants at 1 meter from the jeep,...

The accomodation and food at the Jumbo campsite at Mto Wa Mbu, were unbelievable. It had a pool, very nicely warm tents. There we had our first warm shower in two months!! The organisation and guidance were very very good. They listened to our 'demands' to make sure we had the best safari ever for as less money as possible.

This organisation and safaris are very much recommended! I had the time of my life.

Excellent hilly views . Our lodge here had a swimming pool which the children ( 6 to 15 years ) loved . Was a pleasant introduction to the different terrains of Tanzania.
