Lake Manyara National Park


Scenic lake between Ngorongoro and Serengeti


Lake Manyara is an alkaline lake in Tanzania's Rift Valley, south of the Ngorongoro Crater. It is part of the Lake Manyara National Park, an expanse of groundwater forest and acacia woodland. You can spot flamingos fluttering about along the soda waters or shores of this picturesque lake and within the national park, there are herds of elephant, an array of birdlife and the famous tree-climbing lions!

Lake Manyara is one of the lakes formed by the Great Rift Valley. Caused by the movement of the earth's tectonic plates millions of years ago, this gigantic fracture in the Earth's crust runs some 6440km from the Dead Sea in Jordan all the way to Mozambique. It passes through all of East Africa and is responsible for the formation of the Great Lakes and the mountain ranges in the region. The heart of it coarses through Tanzania and no trip is complete without having been here and seen it for yourself.
