We took a canoe out on the lake and saw many animals, like giraffes and hippos floating in the water. We also saw multiple different kinds of birds and just being on the water on a hot day was very enjoyable. Definitely worth the trip. Our guide was knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and told some amazing and interesting stories.

These are lakes in the Arusha NP. You have a good chance spotting some flamingos and loads of other water birds here. It is also possible to go kayaking on the lake (which we haven't done).

Momella Lakes is a collection of multiple lakes located in the Arusha National Park fed by various underground water streams and rainfall during its season which attract complete life cycle of hippos and different types of birds such as Flamingos, herons, Egyptian gees and many more. Part of the activity in the lake includes canoe with a great view of beautiful tall blonde giraffes which are also seen near the lake areas and the forest in the background. Game drives follows in the Park which will get you closer to Buffaloes, Bush-bucks, Water-bucks plus many more others. Boxed lunch served at the nearby picnic site.

This was a good intro to Tanzanian wildlife parks. Since we were visiting during the dry season, the greenery of the park in the shadow of Mt Meru was most welcome. Worth a visit, if you have the time.

Canoeing on little Momella lake was a highlight of our trip to Tanzania. The guide was very professional and we loved canoeing on the lake with giraffes watching from the hill above.

A fantastic area within Arusha National Park. Sitting at about 4000ft, the temperatures are slightly cooler.

There are small hills around the Lake and during my visit a number of giraffes occupied the top spot for the best views.

The lakes are a haven for wild life from flamingos to hippos and a little species of duck that is affectionately called Jesus ducks by the locals because they can walk on water.

The area around the lake has excellent bird life, giraffes, warthog, waterbuck, hippos etc. Didn't see the hippos myself, however, did see just about everything else.

When in the National park your guide will take you to the lakes. A nice picnic area and unbeatable views of the Momellas.

Great views of the landscape even if the weather was cloudy and rainy at times. Lots of birds and animals but unfortunately, no elephants.

Bright African Safaris suggested we might enjoy doing a Canoe Ride on the Momella Lake. So very glad Salim suggested as while sitting in our canoe, we saw our first Hippos w/several Giraffes on land as the backdrop for our pictures.
