Tanzania’s only Treetop Walkway, located in Lake Manyara National Park, is an excellent way for guests to experience this groundwater forest ecosystem from a unique birds-eye view. This sky-high adventure has a total walking distance of 370 meters and a maximum height of 18 meters (59 feet). The walkway is built up with ten suspension bridges along with several viewing decks situated around tree trunks. This is also one of the longest treetop walkways in Africa.
Our field experts recently made a visit to inspect this new attraction and experience the adventure for themselves. The team was thoroughly impressed to see that the bridge has strict safety standards with multiple reinforcements. The bridge has netting on all sides for safety. Additionally, the walkway allows one-direction traffic in order to avoid congestion while ensuring that the route does not get repetitive. The local guides are well trained to provide assistance on the bridge as well as information on the trees, butterflies, birds, monkeys and various wildlife that guests can expect to see.
