Flamingo Watching on Lake Manyara
Lake Manyara, Tanzania
Harder to predict than the Great Migration, the Flamingo migration is equally incredible to witness as they descend on Lake Manyara in their thousands. An amazing photo opportunity or simply the chance to witness these spectacular birds in their element.
Set out from your camp to either enjoy sundowners or coffee on the shore of Lake Manyara in Northern Tanzania whilst watching the sun rise or set over the thousands of blush-coloured birds, or alternatively put on some rubber boots and go wading through the mud among them. Lake Manyara National Park is famous for these beautiful birds that roam the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands during the wet season. There are more than 400 species of birds that inhabit the park so it is a huge favourite with keen birders who can expect to see upwards of 100 different species on any one day.
