As you journey through the park, you’ll be mesmerized by the lush groundwater forests, expansive floodplains, and rugged escarpment walls.

A Birdwatcher’s Paradise

If you’re a bird enthusiast, Lake Manyara National Park is a dream come true. The park boasts over 400 bird species, offering endless opportunities for birdwatching. Marvel at the sight of flocks of pink flamingos that adorn the shores of the lake, creating a mesmerizing spectacle. Keep your eyes peeled for the majestic African fish eagle, the dazzling kingfisher, and the vibrant lilac-breasted roller. With each twist and turn of your safari, you’ll discover a new avian wonder, making for an unforgettable experience.

The Legendary Tree-Climbing Lions

One of the park’s most unique and thrilling attractions is its population of tree-climbing lions. Unlike their counterparts in other regions, these lions have developed the unusual habit of lounging in acacia trees. Witnessing these magnificent creatures lazily resting on branches high above the ground is a sight to behold. Our expert guides at Lyimo Expeditions will ensure you have the best vantage points to capture these extraordinary moments on camera.

With Lyimo Expeditions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the park’s hidden corners and witness these incredible animals in their natural habitats.

As you wander through these enchanting woodlands, you’ll be enveloped in the soothing sounds of rustling leaves and chirping birds.

The park’s alkaline lake is fringed by dense marshes and grassy floodplains, creating a rich tapestry of plant life.
