Lake Manyara National Park is home to the famous tree-climbing lions and occupies the eastern escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. The Great Rift forms part of a fault in the earth's crust which runs 800 km from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique. The word Manyara is of a Masaai origin which is a thin succulent cactus like plant known as "Euphorbia Tincalli". This plant was grown for livestock stockades.
It’s a small park, and more than two thirds of it is covered by water. It is one of Tanzania’s most popular destinations.
