The Lake Manyara National Park is located about 60 km (37 miles) south of Ngorongoro Crater. It has more wooded areas than the Serengeti, the elephants for instance live in the forest. You can see many of the other larger animals as well. It has plenty of bird life, I saw several birds that I hadn't seen before.
