This beautiful park gained international attention for tree-climbing lions and the huge flocks of flamingos that feed on Lake Manyara’s shores in the wet season. The lake attracts a huge variety of wildlife and is particularly noted for bird watching with well over 400 recorded species. It isn’t unusual for visitors to encounter more than 100 species on any given day. Elephant, giraffe, leopard, blue monkeys and wallowing hippos are among the many other residents. A Lake Manyara visit can easily be combined with the other three Northern Tanzania parks we take visitors to.
Our safaris featuring Lake Manyara National Park include:
This truly magical place is an almost perfectly circular extinct volcanic caldera. The crater floor, a relatively small yet diverse plain with small forests, streams and grassland, is encircled by steep mountains that form the crater rim. This natural sanctuary was formed by a massive volcano millions of years ago and bustles with the activity of an estimated 25,000 animals. These include elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo along with large herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo. Bird life abounds with fish eagles, secretary birds, ostrich and flamingo. Your Ngorongoro safari can be easily combined with nearby Serengeti and Lake Manyara National Parks, making for an unforgettable African experience.
Our safaris featuring Ngorongoro Crater include:
So famous it hardly needs an introduction; the Maasai call this place ‘the endless plain’ and when you arrive to take in a seemingly infinite vista of grassland dotted with trees you’ll understand why. The Serengeti is teeming with all the wildlife you’d expect to see in Africa and is particularly good for lion sightings. You can also see leopard, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, hyena and even rhino so that you have a good chance of encounters with all of the ‘big five’. The famous Great Migration passes through these vast plains, making it possible for those visiting at the right time to see gigantic herds of wildebeest and zebra, all being pursued by mighty predators such as lions and crocodiles. This is a truly spectacular area and to get even more magic out of your visit you might want to consider a safari that also includes nearby Ngorongoro Crater.
Our safaris featuring Serengeti National Park include:
Famed for rolling grassland dotted with ancient baobab trees, this park lies about 140km south of Arusha. It is named for the Tarangire River that runs through the park in an otherwise arid land, thus serving to attract thousands of animals migrating to seek water in the dry season. During this time visitors can see massive herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo as well as huge flocks of flamingo. Year-round Tarangire is home to a dense elephant population along with big cats, giraffe, gazelle, caracal, honey badger and the rarely seen African wild dog. The landscape also features hundreds of termite mounds with the abandoned ones being popular with dwarf mongoose. Lake Manyara National Park is nearby, making it possible to combine both parks with Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park for the ultimate safari experience.
