At the base of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park comprises 325km2 of wildlife dense arid land, forest and the soda-lake Lake Manyara.

Subjected to high levels of evaporation, Lake Manyara is nearly nonexistent during the dry season between June and October however covers up to 200km2 between the months of November to May during which it hosts thousands of flamingos, a large population of hippo and upwards of 400 bird species.

A narrow strip of land bordered by a 600m high escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is a haven for wildlife and provides the ideal introduction to safari before visiting the larger, wildlife dense Northern parks.
