Lake Manyara is mostly well-known for large troops of olive baboon, elephants and its tree-climbing lions, but there’s much more that makes it well worth a visit. Not far from the Ngorongoro Crater on the shores of Lake Manyara, is a belt of precious wilderness reserve some 100 km long. The forest areas of Lake Manyara National Park are home to many species of exotic playful monkeys and colourful, rare birds.
