1. Lake Manyara National Park - Karatu

Lake Manyara National Park

Located at about 90 minutes drive from Arusha, Lake Manyara National Park is a Tanzanian national park with the largest concentration of baboons in the world. The park which covers an area of 330 square kilometers was officially given the status of a national park by the Tanzanian government in 1960. Due to its variety of habitats, the park is home to a great variety of animal and bird species. Lake Manyara National Park is famous for its significant concentration of elephants, tree-climbing lions, buffaloes, hippopotamuses, waterbucks, giraffes, zebra and impalas. Besides these animals, the game in Lake Manyara includes flamingoes, ducks, geese, ibis, and egrets. The park offers plenty of activities and adventure for the whole family. On your visit to Lake Manyara National Park, you can enjoy day and night game drives, bicycling, canoeing, guided walks, and bird watching. A visit to the park during November to June is perfect for bird watching and canoeing. On the other hand, if you’re interested in game watching, you should consider visiting the park in dry season (July to October). The park offers luxury tree-style accommodation for the visitors. In addition to this, several guesthouses are also located in the close proximity of Lake Manayara. The park can be accessed by road or via flight from Arusha.
