The park is known for its Great Migration, an annual event that involves millions of wildebeest. The migration takes place between Tanzania and Kenya. These movements vary from year to year, and are dependent on rainfall. The best time to see the migration is between July and October.

Located in Tanzania, Lake Manyara is one of the most beautiful places in the country. This shallow, alkaline soda lake is known for its diverse bird life. It is fed by underground springs and is known for its unique landscape.

Lake Manyara is an ideal place to visit during a Tanzania safari. The park has diverse habitats, including forests, marshes, and grasslands. There are many activities to keep you entertained while you are here.

The best time to visit Lake Manyara is during the dry season (June to October). This is when the animal sightings are highest. You should also visit during the first eight months of the year to avoid dust in the later months.

Maasai tribe

During my travels around Tanzania, I had the opportunity to interact with the Maasai tribe. These warriors are well-known for their fighting prowess. They are also photogenic. Their presence has generated a lot of curiosity from tourists.

The Maasai tribe has become an icon for indigenous people in Africa. They are also known for their nomad lifestyle. They live in arid African savannas and rangelands. They are estimated to have around 800,000 members in Kenya and Tanzania.

The Maasai are a Nilotic ethnic group who believe in one god, Enkai. Their culture is also influenced by their belief in the power of cattle. They believe that cattle are the creation of God. Cattle are the source of their livelihood and they enjoy the milk from these animals.

Their traditional dress represents their group identity. They wear red robes, spears, swords, and clubs. They also wear colorful sheets called shuka, which are draped over their shoulders. They also wear beaded ornaments in their earlobes.

Maasai men are renowned for their jumping abilities. They take turns jumping without touching the ground. They sing a high-pitched song depending on the height of the jump. They also use iron spears as weapons. In addition, boys must kill a lion with a club to become men.

Some Maasai men have also been known to engage in sex-tourism. They pay bride price to women in exchange for cattle. In addition, they have multiple wives.
