DAY TRIP TARANGIRE OR LAKE MANYARA
Tarangire National Park is part of an extended ecosystem where animals roam freely. The park is famous for its two giants, these are elephants and baobab. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of water for wild animals in the Tarangire ecosystem during the dry season when the animals gather for quenching their thirst. Visiting Tarangire you will be able to see large herds of zebras, wildebeests, impalas, and giraffes. Disused termite mounds are often frequented by colonies of the endearing dwarf mongoose and pairs of red and yellow barbet.
LAKE MANYARA: – The famous park for its tree climbing lions, which spend most of the day slumbering on the brunch of trees. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment the park is distinguished for its incredible beauty. After the entrance, you will pass through a jungle-like – ground water forest, home to troops of baboons and both blue and velvet monkeys. After the forest, it opens up into woodlands, grassland, swamps, and later the soda lake with different species of birds including flamingos, Pelican, storks, sacred ibis, and Egyptian geese. The park is particularly noted for its huge herds of buffalo, elephants, hippos, reedbuck, zebras, and giraffe. Apart from the Game drive in Lake Manyara, you can also do a treetop walkway.
