Park is dramatically marked off by lush green vegetation consisting of tall
trees of the ground water forest, which provide home to troops of baboons and
blue monkeys. Further down, the forest opens up into woodland, grassland,
swamps and beyond, the soda lake itself where over 350 species of birds,
including the lively flamingo, pelican, sacred ibis, grebe and stork can be
viewed. At the southern end of the Park are hot sulphur springs called
MajiMoto. Manyara is noted for its numerous buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala,
hippo, as well as a great variety of smaller animals, and of course the very
elusive tree-climbing lions.
