Lake Manyara National Park offers enormous topographical variety and abundant wildlife for its relatively manageable range of approximately 300 square kilometers, making it superb for a day trip safari. On the savannah plains, you may spot giraffe, troops of baboon, zebra, ostrich, elephant, bushbuck, aardvarks and the occasional lions on the tree and leopard, while the lake is the home of over 400 species of birds such as shrikes, geese, hornbills, lesser and greater flamingoes, ibis and kingfishers.
