Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is known for flocks of thousands of flamingos that feed along the edge of the lake in the wet season. The groundwater forest to the north of the lake, and largely within the National Park, is a well-known breeding site for thousands of pink-backed pelicans and yellow-billed storks along with smaller numbers of Marabou stork and grey herons. Over 40 species of birds of prey are documented, including palm-nut vulture and Ayre's hawk-eagle.. Large herds of wildebeest and other plains game from the Mto wa Mbu Game Controlled Area, enter the park from the north for short periods. Wildebeest exclusively graze the alkaline grasslands around the lake, and numbers are highest during the dry season, dropping to small resident populations in the wet season. Herbivores of Lake Manyara National Park include Thomson's gazelle, Grant's gazelle zebra, bushbuck, waterbuck, Grant's gazelle, impala, Cape buffalo, giraffe, hippopotamus, baboon, warthog, and elephant.
