Manyara Region takes its name from Lake Manyara, which is one of the major lakes formed in ancient times by the Great Rift Valley. It is the only Region in Tanzania to be bisected into two by the Great Rift Valley. It is a major wildlife water source and is, therefore, an essential part of the wildlife ecosystems of Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Tarangire National Park. In addition, Lake Manyara is the country’s largest breeding ground for tens of thousands of flamingos.Meals: FB
