Tanzania National Parks Authority
Jambo, welcome to Tanzania! You will be greeted at your accommodation by one of the Big Expedition’s guides, who will provide you with a safety talk and a rundown of the days itinerary. You will then enjoy a panoramic morning drive to Lake Manyara National Park, stopping at Mto Wa Mbu village on the way. Lake Manyara National Park is a must to visit because it boasts a diverse and varied terrain in a relatively small area. The park stretches along the base of the 600 metre high Rift Valley escarpment. Lake Manyara covers two thirds of the park. Incredibly, the other third of the park homes a variety of animals, which are supported by open savannah grassland with rocky outcrops, marshes and acacia woodland.
