Lake Manyara is a small Tanzanian park that is famous for its variety of birds and its climbing lions. During the dry season the lake is away from the main tracks so it is rather complicated to go bird watching, but on the contrary it is easier to see the animals. The most common animals are hippos, elephants, giraffes and buffalo. Despite being famous for its lions, spotted cats is not easy to see. If this is the first park you visit you will find it interesting. but if you have visited others, as we had, you will see it like a oath to get to another park.
