Lake Manyara National Park

Over View

Located in the background of the Great Rift Valley western escarpment, this long and narrow park covers the area between the escarpment and Lake Manyara. The lake is very shallow and alkaline and covers one-third of the park but reduces considerably in the dry season.<br /> Lake Manyara National Park is very easy to access, taking about 90 minutes drive from Arusha and only an hour from the Ngorongoro Crater. Which is why on the northern side of the park can get very crowded, especially in the afternoons. To see the park at its best, we recommend that you either stay within the park or spend two nights somewhere close, entering the park early for a full-day safari.<br />
