Lake Manyara National Park is known for the flamingos that inhabit the lake. During the wet season they inhabit the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands but they are not so present during the dry season.
More than 400 species of birds inhabit the park and many remain throughout the year. Because of this Lake Manyara National Park is a good spot for bird watching.

The third park you will visit during this 8 days private Serengeti safari vacation in Tanzania
The Serengeti National Park hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which is one of the ten natural wonders of the world.
The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment.
Each year around the same time the circular great wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro area of the southern Serengeti of Tanzania. A natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing. It is January to March when the calving season begins.
Some 250,000 wildebeest die during the journey from Tanzania to Maasai Mara Reserve in lower Kenya, a total of 800 kilometres (500 miles). Death is usually from thirst, hunger, exhaustion, or from the numerous predators on their trail. Read more details on Serengeti National Park

A large lake in the middle of the crater is inhabited by hundreds of flamingoes, and from a distance, they appear as a pink border of the lake. Read more details on Ngorongoro Crater.
