Lake Manyara National Park is one of the smallest safari parks in Tanzania, but it offers within its numerous microclimates a varied ecosystems with groundwater forests, bush plains, baobab strewn cliffs and algae streaked hot springs. The parks namesake is a shallow, alkaline lake which expands and contracts with the seasons within a long, silvery bowl of salt deposits.

The Masai giraffe can be found in central and southern Kenya and in Tanzania. It has distinctive, irregular, jagged, star-like blotches which extend to the hooves. A median lump is usually present in males. Originally, the Masai giraffe lived throughout Africa, however, due to loss of habitat and deforestation, they are only found in the savannas of Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia and Tanzania.
