ABOUT THE DAY TRIP LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK SAFARI
We will visit Lake Manyara National Park on this day trip. As it is significantly greener, Forestier, and features a vast lake that carries the same name. Lake Manyara National Park is smaller and more diverse than the other parks. The majority of the national park’s area is occupied by the lake. Along with that, the park is known for its diverse landscapes and the hippo pool, where numerous hippopotamuses spend their days. The thousands of flamingos that flock here every year should not be forgotten.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK DAY TRIP
You’ll be driving a large 4×4 land cruiser with a pop-up canopy for 360-degree visibility. During a day trip to Lake Manyara National Park, you might see hippo’s flamingos, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, warthogs, impalas, buffalo, baboons, blue velvet monkeys, and on a lucky day, a lion lounging in a tree. Of course, there are plenty more animals to be discovered!
After all of the wide plains and stretched-out landscapes, driving through the park is a pleasant and adventurous experience. You may come very close to the animals without even realizing it! Keep your eyes and ears peeled!
When it’s rainy (November/December and March to May), the lake can take up as much as 60% of the park’s entire land area, or a massive 231 km2, during those times. The lake’s highly alkaline waters during these months draw a variety of migratory waterbirds, including the well-known flocks of pink flamingos.
THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
