Lake Manyara

TANZANIA


LUXURY TRAVEL TO LAKE MANYARA

Lake Manyara is a shallow, scenic lake located in the East African Rift Valley, below the rift valley escarpment.

The park entrance leads you onto a road that loops around the perimeter of the lake. A slow drive on this road over a few hours or a day is a great way to see the lake, which was once described by Ernest Hemingway as ‘The loveliest lake in Africa’. It is also a great way to experience the diverse vegetation and changing scenery along the way, with the rift valley escarpment forming a dramatic backdrop and separating the fauna and flora from that of the grassy savannahs of the Serengeti, to the North.

Diversity of wildlife in the area is also good: It is known for its baboons, although it is also home to a few species of herbivores, such as buffalo, wildebeest, hippo, and impala. There are plenty of leopard in the area, though these elusive cats are not always easy to spot, and the handful of lions in the area are also rarely spotted. Birdwatchers will be in paradise: There is a seasonal influx of massive flocks of flamingos, and hundreds of other bird species nearby the lake.

There are a few good lodges available for accommodation in the vicinity of Lake Manyara, both to the West and down the eastern side of the lake, and Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, which is actually inside the park. This provides a peaceful, and relaxing higher-end alternate in the area.
