Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara is a superb park for seeing a large number of big game species in a small amount of time. It has tree climbing lions and spectacular views of the Rift Valley. It is also one of the few national parks that allows night game drives.

  • Big game: Exceptional
  • Birding: Excellent
  • Best time to visit Manyara: All year is excellent though it rains in April and May.
  • How to get to Manyara: you can drive or fly.
  • Safari types available: Game drives, forest board walk and night game drives.

Manyara has excellent birdwatching with thousands of flamingoes and pelicans. The edge of the lake is a great place to sit and watch the birds.

There are just one luxury lodges inside the park with the camping and other accommodation available outside. Our expert team will help you to choose the lodge most suited for your safari depending on your budget and the time of year.

  • The programme was excellent and we saw masses of game, less a leopard! So, entirely happy customers. Thank you for your efficient handling of the whole trip.

  • We had a really great vacation on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania and wonderfully facilitated by our driver/guide Salim who was really first class - a great representative of Wild Things.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
