  • Burunge WMA occupies the land and the migratory corridors between Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and the adjacent Manyara ranch, making it an area of high conservational significance. Today, the area is widely known for its large buffalo population that moves in and out of Tarangire. The presence of Lake Butrunge in the WMA attracts the migration of water birds such as greater and lesser flamingoes and a range of ducks and shore birds.
