Lake Manyara National park
Lake Manyara National park is a safari park blessed with stunning views from corner to corner. From the eastern side of the park, the Rift Valley escarpment emerges on the horizon with the glittery lake forming a glistening background. On the southern side, you will stumble upon the hot springs of Maji Moto. At the top of the Manyara escarpment from the west, the park stretches across a ribbon of a shiny green lake reflecting the Suns’s rays. Meanwhile, like most of the Rift Valley lakes, the water is alkaline attracting large flocks of flamingos forming a pink foam against a silvery blanket background of water summing up in this area to portray amazingly beautiful views as you take in the massive silvery shimmering lake surrounding the vegetation.
The major spectacle in the Lake Manyara is the magnificent rift wall, where the plains give way to cultivated uplands of land of the Mbulu tribe of the Manyara region. The Great Rift Valley is part of a crack like fault in the earth’s crust. Measuring only 330 sq. km, of which the lake occupies 230 sq. km, this park is renowned for the diversity of its distinct features which makes the Park a particularly memorable place to visit.
