soda-lake, to the east. The park consists of 330 sq km (127 sq miles) of arid land, forest, and a soda-lake which covers
as much as 200 sq km (77 sq miles) of land during the wet season but is nearly nonexistent during the dry season. Best

and canoeing.

edges of the lake in flocks of thousands but they are not so present during the dry season. More than 400 species of
birds inhabit the park and many remain throughout the year. Because of this Lake Manyara National Park is a good spot
