Absolutely gorgeous park with plenty of animals to see just about everywhere. Fantastic landscapes even when animals aren't present.

I was very pleased with our guide Peter and his excellent knowledge. He made sure we got the most out of our game drives. We visited Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park.

We saw a lot of baboons and elephants, as well as many zebra's, wildebeest and bufallos. However, having been to Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Maasai Mara it felt that there wasn't as many animals as in the other parks, possibly because many were hidden in the bushes of the lake Manyara Park.

We were fortunate to see 2 tree climbing lions. Enjoyed the blue monkeys and varied bird life.

Lake Manyara was our first game drive on our visit. We saw elephants, baboons, wildebeest, warthogs, zebras, and giraffes, all in our first 2 hours of being there. It was a great introduction to our week long safari. Make a point of stopping at the cultural center a couple miles outside the park. Local crafts by local artisans. great gifts, and a good way so support the local folks.

There were not so easy to spot animals at Lake Manyara - compared to other National Parks.
No flamingos at the time of our visit.
Lake is beautiful though, and view at the Great Rift - stunning.

Very melodramatic park, not much to see or do.

Is animals density combined with the high general cost of doing safari in Tanzania makes this park a bad idea - I would rather spend more time in Tarangire or Serengeti than visiting this park again.
