2 Days 1 Night Lake Manyara National Park

2 Days 1 Night Lake Manyara National Park is a short overnight safari/wildlife holiday to Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania located 125 Kilometers (78 miles) West of Arusha town, which is a half-hour flight or a 2-hour drive

2 Days 1 Night Lake Manyara National Park Safari is an overnight Safari to the Northern Circuit of Tanzania in Lake Manyara National Park. The park is not far from the Ngorongoro Crater. Lake Manyara National Park is 125 kilometers (78 miles) west of Arusha town, which is a half-hour flight or a 2-hour drive. It covers an area of 330 square kilometers (127 square miles), of which about a quarter is Lake Manyara.

The beautiful Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania is noted for its beauty and incredibly lush acacia forest of giant fig and mahogany trees, which are home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. The park is also home to a large number of buffaloes, giraffes, elephants, impalas, and a Hippo lake, where large numbers of hippos usually gather.

Well known for its birds (over 400 different species), Lake Manyara is one of the few places where you’ll be able to see the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. This park has become famous for the climbing lions and the flamingos on the lake shore.

The landscapes of this park are stunning, very different from the Serengeti for example. The game drives are done along the shore of the lake, providing incredible views of giraffes and buffalos in the foreground with the lake, flamingos, and flat plains in the horizon. Great photo opportunities, in the evening return to the Campsite or a Lodge for dinner and overnight.
