A Birder's Paradise with Tree-Climbing Lions

Known for its famous and unique tree-climbing lions. Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania is a wildlife enthusiast's dream. With its tree-climbing lions, large herds of elephants, and over 400 species of birds, the park is a must-visit destination.

If you're looking for a truly unique wildlife experience, Lake Manyara is the place to go. The park's tree-climbing lions are thought to have developed this behavior to escape the heat and biting insects on the ground. On a game drive, you may be lucky enough to spot a lion napping lazily in a tree, or even stalking prey from above.
