Lake Manyara - Day Trip

A spectacular day trip that includes wildlife-viewing and an opportunity to learn about the everyday lives of Tanzanian villagers. On the edge of the Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park is small, but its diverse ecosystems pack in a huge variety of animal and birdlife. It is rightly famous for its tree-climbing lions, but also for its boisterous baboons!

A riot of color is provided by the birdlife here. Our 1-Day Lake Manyara National Park safari package was designed to offer visitors, with a free day on hand, game drive through  the park. Do you have a free day, maybe before or after a Kilimanjaro trekking adventure, or are you waiting for a flight to your next destination? These 1-day African safaris provide just the answer for you, to get a brief but unforgettable African wildlife safari experience.


  • Learn from some of the best knowledgeable guides in Tanzania
  • Look for the larger tusker elephants.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for the prolific birdlife of Tanzania

Arusha - Lake Manyara National Park - Arusha

You leave your accommodation after breakfast with a picnic lunch packed safely away. The Rift Valley landscape draws close as your guide heads for Lake Manyara National Park, the smallest national park on the northern circuit but one capable of delivering fantastic game viewing.

Home to Tanzania’s biggest baboon population, Lake Manyara supports large numbers of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elephants and a host of bird’s species most evident after the long rains when the Lake attracts thousands of pelicans who come to feed on the abundance of fish in the Lake together with flamingos feeding on minute algae, but Lake Manyara is known for the famous tree-climbing lions which can be seen hanging on acacia trees.

You will have time to enjoy your picnic, included as part of your day tour. At 16.00, we set off from the park to reach Arusha by 18:00 hours and you will be dropped at your accommodation or place of residence.
