Details of One Day Safari to Lake Manyara National Park
DAY 1: ARUSHA – MAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
You’ll depart from Arusha after breakfast and begin the drive to Lake Manyara National Park. The journey takes approximately two hours, but we’ll pass through the market town of Mto Wa Mbu along the way. This agricultural and fresh produce market is a melting pot of local cultures and a souvenir hunter’s paradise.
After a brief stop at the village market, you’ll enter Lake Manyara National Park. The park is truly a photographer’s playground and offers some of the best game viewing in the world. You can expect to see many of Africa’s most well-known animals, with the tree-climbing lions a particular treat. These proud predators lounge in acacia trees practically begging to be photographed.
Bird-watchers will find Lake Manyara is an absolute delight, with a huge variety of birds on display in the park. Even the novice can expect to be amazed by large flamingo flocks, circling birds of prey, and the brightly coloured lilac breasted roller.
You’ll return to Arusha in the late afternoon.
Under the right conditions, it is also possible to take a guided canoe safari out on the lake. Consult your safari expert to see if this activity will be available for your visit.
