We’ll witness the large buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds that congregate on these grassy plains. Manyara National Park provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day.
