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.

Nice place to spend a few hours

We enjoyed Lake Manyara for a few hours. It's a small park and a lot of it has relatively dense foliage, so in places it's hard to see animals.

But there are parts of the park that are movie-set spectacular, filled with a variety of animals and the lake in the background.

We did the treetop walk, which was not at all worth either the cost or the time we spent on it.

Delightful drive with amazing lion siting

We drove the whole length of the park which was actually really interesting.

The landscape is varied and as well as the extensive birdlife we saw the blue monkey playing and feeding and a beautiful female lion lounging on a tree at one of the campsites. one of the best photos I have!

Fazo our guide is absolutely wonderful and as well as that wildlife we also so various elephants at close range.

Lake Manyara pleasant en route

The treetop walk was pleasant.

The bird-life on the lake (pelicans, yellow-billed storks) was dense, and the most interesting part was probably really good observation of behaviour of the numerous baboons.

Lake Manyara Safari review- Lovely area.

We only spent a short while in this park but it was pretty with a great deal of wildlife in a small space.

The highlight was seeing a flapped chameleon crossing the road in front of us!
