Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is stunningly beautiful. You might spot a famous tree-climbing lion stretched on the branches of a flat-topped acacia tree, whilst lake views are made lovelier with a 400-strong bird species, including flamingos and pelicans. One of the natural wonders of the world, Ngorongoro Crater has one of the highest wildlife densities on earth with antelopes, wildebeest, zebra and the Big Five. Wildlife co-exists peacefully with the local Maasai people and their cattle. Surrounding foothills offer lush green landscapes dotted with small villages and picturesque coffee and tea plantations that you can explore by bicycle, horseback or on foot.
