Tanzania Lake Manyara

On the edge of Lake Manyara, the Lake Manyara National Park is a forested area of land, sitting below the Great Rift escarpment.

The lake is populated by over 350 species of birds, such as ostriches, as well as being the feeding ground for roughly 1,900,000 flamingos and is a popular park for birdwatchers.

There is also the chance to spot tree-climbing lions, herds of elephants, hippos and giraffes as well as migrations of zebras and wildebeest passing through the area.
