Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara is a small national park offering a rich diversity of habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to acacia woodlands and baobab-strewn cliffs. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and vast herds of elephants.
Manyara has the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world, and the park supports an incredibly rich variety of birds with more than 400 species recorded. Visit during the rainy season and you may find the lake covered in pink flocks of flamingos.
