The park has beautiful views of mountains, the lake, and wildlife. Moments I felt like I was in the jungle in Belize and then having a picnic in Wyoming. The views are gorgeous and great for landscape photos. I was disappointed and saddened to learn...More

On our 10-day visit to Tanzania, we visited Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Each is unique, and we enjoyed all of them. This one is unique because of the lake as a backdrop. The standouts for us were the elephants, hippos, lions (always watchable!), and the...More

Manyara was the third national park we visited. Well worth it. Very different from Ngorongoro and Serengeti. Lots of birds and elephants.

I really can't say When we went it was January. So whether or not the road is open now I do not know. The Lake is worth the visit. And you will see lots of animals. Have fun !
