Lake Manyara National Park – A sign upon entrance says – "Remove nothing from this Park except: Nourishment for the soul, Consolation for the heart, Inspiration for the mind.“
This refuge for animals, great and small, is all of that and more. Do not miss.
Flora and fauna
The elephant sightings are numerous, as are giraffes. Most amazing is the endless sea of flamingos that make the lake appear almost pink.
The park is south west of Arusha and is an hour and a half drive via car. The park can also be reached from Babati, which is the capital of Manyara Region.
