Manyara National Park is one of the top destinations in the Northern part of Tanzania. Its name has been derived from plants known as Euphorbia tirucalli; called Emanyara in Maasai Language.
The Park is one of the few National Parks where Night game drives can be done. It is also easily accessible and nearer to Arusha city which is the tourist hub.
Apart from Tree climbing lions who does that because of the alkaline and wet soil in the park, other animals found in the park includes; elephants, hippos, zebras, giraffes, buffalos and various bird species (such as flamingos, ground hornbill, grey crowned crane).
