Manyara National Park


Lake Manyara is a shallow lake in the the East Aftican Rift said by Ernest Hemingway to be the "loveliest [lake] ... in Africa,". It is also the home of a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife. While most known for baboons, the lake and its environs is also home to herbivores such as hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes. Lake Manyara provides opportunities for ornithologists keen on viewing and observing over 300 migratory birds, including flamingo, Long-crested Eagle and Grey-headed Kingfisher.
