Lake Manyara

In northern Tanzania, near Arusha, is Lake Manyara. Kilimanjaro Region to the northeast, Tanga Region to the east, Dodoma Region to the south, Morogoro Region to the southeast, Singida Region to the southwest, and Simiyu Region to the northwest are its neighboring regions. In the Manyara region, Mount Hanang is the highest mountain.


The Manyara Region is home to indigenous people and multilingual communities. These communities include the majority ethnic group in the area, the Irakw, Assa, Gorowa, Kw’adza, Mbugwe, Datooga, Maasai, Barabaig, and Mbugwe.


The main industry in Manyara is farming. Tanzanite gem mining is the primary source of the region’s income. Mount Mererani, in the northern Arusha region, is home to the Tanzanian mines. Additional revenue streams include tourism in the nearby Tarangire Reserve and the Lake Manyara Reserve.
