Lake Manyara National Park well known for the tree climbing lions, the soda ash lake and its flamingos. Behind the splendid scenery of the Great Rift Valley’s steep escarpment in the west is the narrow area that safeguards the area between the escarpment and Lake Manyara. The silvery bowls of salt deposits facilitate the ability of the alkaline Lake Manyara to expand contract with the seasons. Grassy floodplains neighbor it so closely while bands of mixed acacia woodlands in the far end. There are also patches of ever green forests next to the escarpment. These are kept going by the perennial underground waters coming from the bottom of the escarpment. Lake Manyara Nationla Park is only 1 hour and ahalf hours by road from Arusha and in less than an hour still, if you are coming from the Ngorongoro crater.
Lake Manyara has a big number of elephants, so many giraffes; zebras, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, and warthog, small known shy Kik’s dik dik as well as Klipspringer along the ramps of the escarpment. Leopards are hosted within the broken forests and escarpment, healthy lions that are widely known for their tree climbing pranks. This used to be a special character of the park which is not the case today. Regarded as Africa’s largest, huge herds of baboons are expected by most of the travelers.
Birds have a varying life experience within this park. Flocks of pelicans and pink shading of distant flamingos are usually spotted in the middle of the lake. While the spoonbills, egrets, herons, stalks and other waders converge around the edges and water meadows. The captivating species will be viewed in the evergreen forests. The woodlands yield a lot. Examples here include, crowned eagles, created guinea fowl, and the noisy silvery cheeked hornbills.
