An uncrowded park
Stunning concentration of elephants
Not to hammer the point home too hard, but when people think of Lake Manyara National Park, they think elephants.
There's so much to do
Go on a night game drive (if you stay at the park’s lodge) Do the Treetop Walkway (great for spotting birds and monkeys) Do a canoe safari on the lake (water level permitting) Join a village tour (like one visiting a Maasai boma) just outside of the park Picnic or enjoy a bush meal at the Msasa, Majimoto or Endalla picnic sites Stroll along the raised boardwalk at the Majimoto Kubwa hot springs for a fantastic view of the lake Go on a mountain bike tour Abseil down the escarpment Go on a guided evening walking safari along the Msasa or Lake Shore trail Walk the raised boardwalk to the Hippo Pool Viewpoint , from where you can see the lake, escarpment and, of course, the hippos! Go on a forest walk along the escarpment just outside of the park
