Very dry and dusty, also was very hot and uncomfortable. Would recommend going at a different time of year, we went in February.

Arrive early to avoid the crowds, and you can watch a lovely sunrise over the alkaline plains of Lake Manyara. And go soon - unfortunately, the borders of the park are slowly being pinched by development.

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.

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