Lake Manyara is a lovely scenic park on the road from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Crater. The lake itself takes up much of the park, leaving a strip of land where various game concentrate. It is home to a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife. For example, there is the grassy floodplain, contrasting with the intimacy of the forest, where visitors can enjoy the expansive views eastward of the jagged blue volcanic peaks across the silvery reflection of the soda lake. Further out on the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favoured haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants. These lions love to climb the trees and relax on the branches, an unusual behaviour for these animals that they carry out for hours here! Other wildlife in the area includes leopards, buffalos, hippos, antelopes, giraffes and more. Don’t forget! Lake Manyara is also a birdwatcher’s paradise as it is possible to see flamingos, pelicans and more than 380 other bird species.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park
Today will be totally dedicated to the game viewing inside the park. Picnic lunch during the safari and dinner at the camp. The The Serengeti National Park covers over 14.700 sq km and is the largest national park in the country. It hosts the largest mammal migration in Africa in which approximately 2 million wildebeests, 1 million zebras and hundreds of thousands of impala and gazelles migrate a distance of over 800 km. These animals migrate throughout the year in search of fresh grazing and higher quality water. The Grummet and Mara Rivers are the most difficult points in the migration for these animals. Each one, driven by the same ancient rhythm, strives to fulfil its instinctive role within the inescapable circle of life. The result is a three week bout of territorial conquests, mating and survival of the fittest as 40 km long herds of animals plunge through crocodile infested waters and pass through predator territories where hiding lions and other predators wait for one wrong move.
