The shallow, alkaline Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park, attracting large flocks of flamingos, pelicans, and other waterfowl. The park is particularly famous for its tree-climbing lions, often seen lounging in acacia trees. Visitors can also encounter large herds of elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, and primates such as baboons and blue monkeys. The park's ecological diversity is further enriched by its groundwater forest, hot springs, and acacia woodlands, making it a paradise for nature enthusiasts and bird watchers.

Spanning approximately 2,850 square kilometers, the park features seasonal swamps, savannah landscapes, and the vital Tarangire River, which attracts wildlife during the dry season.
