Lake Manyara National Park is one of Tanzania’s smaller and most underrated parks. While it might come up short on the size and assortment of other northern-circuit destinations (there’s basically one main north-south route through the park), its vegetation is diverse, extending from Savannah to marsh to evergreen forest (11 ecosystems on the whole) and it supports one of the most elevated biomass densities of enormous mammals on the planet.
The opportunity to see elephant families traveling through the forest or Lake Manyara’s renowned populace of tree-climbing lions are alone from everyone else reason enough to come.
The sensational western slope of the Rift Valley frames the park’s western outskirts. Toward the east is the alkaline Lake Manyara, which covers one-third of the park yet shrivels extensively in the dry season. During the downpours, the lake has a large number of flamingos and other bird life.

Excellent Tour with Great Service. I would highly recommend Best Northern Safaris. We went for 7 Days Machame Route. It was a pleasure to have met this team! Recommended...
Great experience with Best Northern Safaris! We did 2 tours (Safari & Climbing) with the team. The work they do is very exhausting and hard, but you always seem them laughing.
Once in a lifetime experience. Best Northern Safaris did an incredible job putting together an amazing safari. A friend of mine recommended them, and I'm so glad they did!
