Lake Manyara is a small reserve, located between Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. 

Lake Mayara is a national park of roughly 130 square miles in size with around two thirds of the area covered by its salt water lake.

An impressive number of large animals reside in this area and Lake Manyara has a higher concentration of baboons than most parks in Africa. 

Other animals to be found in Lake Manyara area include: buffalo's, Cape claw-less otter, cheetahs, Egyptian mongoose, elephants, giraffes, hippos, impalas, leopards, lions,  bush babies, warthogs and wildebeest.
