Nature Wonders LAKE MANYARA Tanzania
In the north of Tanzania, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, is a large area that is mainly covered with water, Lake Manyara, a shallow alkaline lake.
The Manyara National Park was inaugurated in 1960 and today, it measures around 330 square kilometres.
In addition to many varieties of antelope, there are also countless herds of gnu or ''wildebeest'', that roam the large fertile plains and for ornithologists, the lake is ideal for the observation of birdlife as it contains around 400 species.
The acacia savannah is home to giraffe, while herds of African buffalo prefer the spacious grasslands.
Lake Manyara is far more than just a wonderful lake surrounded by the dramatic beauty of the Great Rift Valley, it is an ideal habitat for several magnificent creatures and is a true miracle of nature!
