Small Park but lots to see

This park was well-frequented and being small felt over-crowded.

Lake Manyara Safari review

Really enjoyed a day visit to Lake Manyara from Gibbs Farm.

Peter was a very friendly and knowledgeable driver/ guide organised by Gibbs. We did not feel that LM was too crowded on the day we visited; certainly worthwhile making this a separate trip rather than just passing through the park en route for a couple of hours.

We had some fabulous sightings of elephant (within touching distance of the vehicle) and lions; also the variety of birdlife in both the woodland and wetland zones was most prolific.

Lake Manyara Safari review

Lake Manyara was a really special park. Small but quite diverse.

We didn't see the tree climbing lions (or any lions for that matter), but our guide/driver was in communication over the radio with others in the park and i don't believe any lions were seen that day. What we did see however were lots of elephants, incredibly close up.

Really enjoyed our day here.

Lake Manyara Flamingos

A lovely day spent at lake Manyara, through different terrains as well as the lakes and flamingos.

We saw lots of baboons and black faced monkeys, eating the fragrant acacia blossom, which were very entertaining.

Great hippo viewings, wallowing in the lakes. Lots of ibis, storks, hamerkop and vultures. Just great to eat our packed lunch watching all the water activity. Not as many flamingo as anticipated as the lake was quite dry by now but still good, with hundreds of pelicans too.

Would recommend this park for the variety of wildlife.

Lake Manyara Safari review

We enjoyed our visit to Lake Manyara.

It would have been nice to know in advance that because of the dry season the flamingos could not be reached. However we saw a lot of lovely birdlife and other wildlife.

Great for Hippo spotting

A very enjoyable few hours at Lake Manyara. Relaxing and laid back, with an amazing hippo pool with about 70 hippos in residence at the time. We could have watched them for hours.

A quick look.

We spent a few hours driving through Lake Manyara. It felt more grounded than our other game drives.. Interesting place, but not a highlight

Lake Manyara Safari review

I'm happy to say we were pleasantly surprised to see more animals than expected (both in variety and numbers). It's not Serengeti-like numbers of course, but good.
