This stunning body of water could be considered the crown jewel in Tanzania’s lake system, where picturesque beauty abounds and wildlife is plentiful. It covers approximately two-thirds of the Lake Manyara National Park and houses a tremendous diversity of verdant habitats. Often adorned with flocks of pelicans and flamingos, the serene alkaline water is complimented by wetlands, grassland and acacia forests that are all offset by the spectacular Rift Valley Escarpment. The evergreen forests around the lake are alive with the sound of noisy hornbills and guinea fowl. While there, keep a lookout for Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions.
