Lake Manyara is the smallest of the 4 national parks we visited on our safari (the others were Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Tarangire). This is probably the only 'bad' thing about it (although that is 'spoiled me' talking). The alkaline lake is a unique ecosystem with loads of rare things to witness in and around it.

We visited several safari parks on this trip, but at Lake Manyara the animals were amazingly close, like nothing I've ever seen before. There were lots of pelicans and storks on the lake, what a great sight!

Compared to other safari sites in Africa, this Park is really worth going.

The park is quite small but has an unusual rain forest environment. The hotel overlooking Manyara has one of the most exciting swimming pools in the world - there is a thousand foot drop from one side.

We had spectacular elephant encounters at Lake Manyara and didn't leave the park until we absolutely had to. That said, it's very popular so you often see other tourists.

May be in Jan to July when it rains but this park has been drying up for last few years its sickening to go after nov when the heat is on .Deforestation catchin up or shall we say desertification. Its usually joined in with tarangire and ngorongoro to make a better package.
