Lake Manyara Treetop Walkway
Experience nature like never before!
Enjoy a guided bird’s-eye view of Manyara on Tanzania’s first treetop walkway (370m). It begins at ground level and climbs gently into the canopy, reaching a maximum height of 18m above the forest floor. Given the importance of the trees in Lake Manyara (and the lions that famously climb them), there’s a certain magic in climbing up into the canopy.
It’s best to enjoy the different perspective on the park without expecting to see any wildlife up high – birds are plentiful, and you may be fortunate enough to encounter baboons, silvery-cheeked hornbills and blue monkeys, but no one’s been known to see lions up here. If you spot an elephant moving through the forest down below, you’ve hit the jackpot. The whole experience is highly recommended.
Birds-eye view of the forest
This is Tanzania’s first Treetop Walkway and one of the longest in Africa. It offers a unique birds-eye view of the world around you. Enjoy life in the canopy amongst butterflies, monkeys and birds.
A great outdoor activity especially for nature lovers and adventure seekers. Families, couples, individuals and groups are all welcome.
The average time it takes to enjoy the Treetop Canopy Walkway is approximately 30 minutes to an hour from the time you entered the ground, allow yourself ample time to relax and enjoy the views. Please note that the walkway only allows for one-direction traffic. Guides are available to give interpretation while in the canopy as well as assisting for ease and enjoyable walk.
