More than almost any other destination, Tanzania is the land of safaris. Wildebeest stampede across the plains. Hippos jostle for space in muddy waterways. Elephants wander along seasonal migration routes and chimpanzees swing through the treetops. Wildlife, beaches, friendly people, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Mt Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar Archipelago – Tanzania has all these and more wrapped up in one adventurous, welcoming package.
Known as the loveliest lake in Africa, Lake Manyara is a beautiful shallow fresh-water alkaline lake in the Rift Valley Province of the Arusha region of Tanzania. Home to a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife, the region around the lake is protected, and known as the Lake Manyara National Park, a narrow strip of land running between the Gregory Rift Wall to the west and Lake Manyara to the east. Other fauna thriving in the region include impalas, baboons, wildebeests, elephants, warthogs, giraffes, buffalos, leopards, and many other animals. The Rift Valley also provides a spectacular backdrop to Lake Manyara.
