Lake Manyara National park is located 125 km west of Arusha town, nestling by the wall of the Great Rift Valley. The Park was gazette as a National park in 1960 and was declared as Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1981. Lake Manyara National Park delivered its name from a plant called Euphorbia tirucalli, known as Emanyara in Maasai language. The Maasai are using this plant to protect their bomas (hedge).
Lake Manyara National Park is one of the oldest and most popular sanctuaries in East Africa. The park has a large variety of habitats, making it possible to support a wealth of wildlife in its small area. The park consists of 330 km2 of arid land, forest, and a soda-lake which covers as much as 200 km2 of land during the wet season but is nearly nonexistent during the dry season. The main habitats include the shallow soda lake, the ground water forest, open grassland, acacia woodland and the rift wall.
Arusha National Park is an easy 40-minute drive from Arusha half hour from Kilimanjaro.
leopards and spotted hyenas of the region are always keeping a close eye on the grazing.
