LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
Lake Manyara National Park covers about 330km square, of which about two-thirds is underwater, it is a small park by African standards. However it is also very beautiful and contains a tremendous diversity of habitats and wildlife. Set beneath the spectacular backdrop of the Great Rift Valley’s steep western escarpment, this long, narrow park protects an area between the escarpment and Lake Manyara.
Being with Hoboadventure at Lake Manyara means the chance to spot the park’s famous tree-climbing lions, thousands of flamingos and amazing variety of other birds. Lake Manyara National Park has over four hundreds species including Eurasian migrant birds, acacia associated birds, raptors, and 3 endangered Tanzanian species.
Lake Manyara National Park and Lake Natron also offer great opportunities of Flamingo watching when gathering on the lake shore in flocks of ten thousands or even several hundred thousands
Binoculars are a must in Manyara, partly for birds, and partly to allow you to keep track of all the wildlife activity in the lake from the terrace of your lodge or from vantage points around the shoreline. Manyara can be visited at any time of year, but wildlife is most abundant during the dry months from June to October.
