In the morning after your breakfast you’ll drive across the floor of the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National Park. This beautiful park with its lush vegetation and tropical forests of giant fig and mahogany trees, takes its name from the Masai word for “euphorbia tirucalli”, a bush which
is used to make a thorny hedge to protect their cattle. Elephants, giraffes, buffalos, zebras and a variety of antelopes inhabit the park as well as a variety of monkeys and a large population of hippos. If you are lucky you may see the Manyara lions, well known for their tree climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of “Acacia tortilis” tree. The birdlife is also abundant with flamingos, pelicans, hornbills and plenty of forest species. In the afternoon, you embark on an extensive game drive in the park with possibilities of viewing the wildlife that inhabits the park not forgetting the view of the lake. Retire for the day while you relax at your accommodation and wait for dinner.
