Lake Manyara National Park- Tanzania Safaris, Attractions, Activities, Accommodation

Located in Tanzania’s northern tourism circuit, lake Manyara is a lovely scenic gem, a lush green paradise enjoying spectacular settings against the a back-drop of 600 m high rift-valley escarpments.    Though receiving less than 800ml of rainfall much of the park is covered by the ever green ground water forest.  The ground water  forest resembles a rain forest with tall large trees, lianas, struggling fig trees and canopy.  The ground ever green forest is home to a variety of wildlife. Primates thriving in the forest include the blue monkeys, baboons and vervet monkey.  Forest birds like the silvery-cheecked horn-bills abound. Also found here are the guinea fowls.

Lake Manyara is also a perfect bird watcher’s paradise with 400 species of birds recorded.  The star of this afivauna are the large flocks of pink feathered flamingos on the lake shores.  The availability of geothermal heated hot-springs makes it possible for the green algae, spiralina (food of flamingos) to thrive. Other wanders (water birds) to be found on the lake shores are pelicans, storks, jacanas, egrets, plovers, ducks and geese. Elephants and other mammals do visit the forest too.

Found in lake Manyara are the tree climbing lions.  Tree climbing lions are also to be found in Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Serengeti Parks.  In Uganda, will find them in Isasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National park. They climb up the trees to avoid the often painful bite of the tsetse flies.

Other big mammals in the park include buffaloes, zebra, giraffe, impala, waterbucks, klipspringer ( on the cliffs), leopards, warthogs, mongoose.

Another attraction in Lake Manyara is the Mto wa Mbu, a multi-ethnic with lively colourful markets and thriving cultural tourism programmes.  The central market is quite impressive with all the local produce including the Masai beads and shukas.  The cultural tourism programe includes visits to shambas (Farms). This visits the local farms where you will witness and even participate in making of banana beer (mbege).  Other excursions from Mto wa Mbu includes hikes to Lake Miwaleni, Balaa Hill or Njoro hotsprings.  Canoeing is also available on the west side of the lake when the water is high.

If you happen to be around on 22 of any month, visit the mnada, the animal auction market which attracts buyers from all over the country.

Activities in Lake Manyara National Park

Besides bird watching and game drives one can enjoy canoeing, mountain biking, micro lifting, night game drives, bush dinners, forest walks, birding. Outside the park one can enjoy the local cultural tourism programs.

4X4 Car Hire For Safari In Nairobi Kenya

October 15, 2012

4×4 Car Hire For Safaris

Group Safaris

Group safaris are beneficial in terms of economy and companionship. The advantages end there. Shared facilities, and fixed schedules means you are mercy of your companions. Thrown out of window are privacy, convenience and freedom. Speed is a major killer of tourism experience. Fixed schedules ensure that you have limited time at any particular destination and speed is of essence. Hiring a 4×4 car on self drive allows you to explore the countryside in total privacy at your own pace. However if you desire to sit down, relax and enjoy the scenery, tow along a driver. With or without a driver having your own 4×4 a major plus. You are free to go wherever at you own convenience and pace.

4×4 Car Ideal For Rutundu Visits

4×4 Categories

4×4 cars come in different sizes and shapes. Some are huge juggernauts-lorries which you have to climb up stairs to access. Others are small sedans with full time 4×4. In between these two are what I can call standard 4x4s as you know. These fall into two categories- the Off-Roads or Standard 4x4s like land Rover Defenders and Toyota land cruiser 90; and the SUVs like the 4×4 land Toyota Land cruiser Prados. The Suvs though called off-roads do not have all that ground clearance necessary to handle deep ruts found on some of the African roads. They are better referred to as crossovers. An in between Sedan and 4×4. The original 4x4s are all whether. They are constructed with the word rough in mind. A Toyota land cruiser 70 is able to make inroads through the bushes of Africa. Likewise the Land rover defender is equally tough. Both cars will climb up mountains or cross deserts without a sweet. They are ideal for tackling Ngorongoro and Northern Kenya.

The Suv and the Off Roads

The best car or the safari is either an off road like a defended or an suv like the prado or a safari mini van. Anything higher than that and you will be taking your photographs downwards. Anything lower and you will be taking your photos from a low level. The best photographic experience is when you are in an average car like defender or an SUV like a Prado. An Economy 4×4 Rav4 is also good for this.

4×4 suvs are categorized into luxury and economy. Modern suvs come with all the trappings of luxury. Talk of climate controls, ABS and cruise control. If you want to tackle the bush, then try a Toyota prado or defenders. The economy 4x4s like the Rav4, the Pajero i,o, Honda CRV will take you to the parks with minimal corrugation.

Mean/ Ugly Or Beautiful?

Some cars look ugly. Others are mean. Yet others are ugly. In Kenya especially, sometimes ugly and mean is ideal. Take a case of Nairobi Mombas highway. Take Caution on that road!! It is owned by the trailers and you have no business having a small car along that stretch. In other words always give way to anybody who looks bigger than you even if they come to your lane.

Having A Guide/ Driver Guide

Having your 4×4 does not mean you doing away with a guide. A qualified guide is a major plus in all situations. In some situations having a guide is a matter of life and death irrespective of your expertise. Can you imagine deep sea fishing, mountain climbing, rock climbing without a guide? Likewise in the wild national parks of Africa a qualified driver guide is a major plus. Unlike in the zoos where animals are habituated, in the wilds of Africa, it is survival of the fittest. Animals are wild and enjoy freedom of way. If you obstruct an elephant’s path, it will either toss away your 4×4 or crush it with you inside. Might is not the only hazard you have to look out for. Harmless looking animals like insects can inflict lethal stings or bite not to mention the snake. Beware of cute looking things like wild cats. They are extremely dangerous especially when lactating. That is to say life is too short.

Safari land cruiser with a driver. In some situations having a life makes the difference between life and death.

In other words survival in the national park depends on your ability to predict animal behavior. You must know when to keep off. If you are not conversant with animal behavior hire a driver guide. He knows when to approach animals. The only inconvenience you have to put up with is that some are not well conversant with positioning for photography.

Car Handling Expertise

Car handling expertise is equally important. When do you apply 4×4? 4×4 is applied sparingly. I mean 4×4 is not to applied all the times or you will end up messing the car and paying for it. For example when do you press cruise control button? When do you press manual or power buttons in Rav4s? If you do not know when, and you value your money, leave them alone. Imagine telling the car to drive at 120kph uphill. Is that logical? You will mess up the car engine and end up paying for it.

Routine Daily Checks

To make sure that your car is in tiptop conditions carry out routine daily checks. Routine daily checks involves morning checks and while on the way monitoring. Every morning make sure you check all the fluid levels of your car. Check the level of oil, transmission fluid and coolant levels. Many are days we have gone for rescue only to find that the culprit was a lose battery cable or worse still burnt out cylinder head gaskets. While on the way monitor the behaviour of the car. Frequently check the coolant gauge. The coolant gauge is normally at mid level. Any deviation above this means your car is getting hot and you should check the culprit. A small lekage of coolant will usually cause the gauge to go up.

When you hire a safari car, make sure you choose a car for your ideal situation. Do not go for the smallest, biggest, the most ugly or mean. Just weight out the available options and choose the best.
