Day 01 Arusha – Lake Manyara

In the morning 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. Elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra and a variety of antelope 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 an “Acacia tortilis” tree. The birdlife is also abundant with flamingos, pelicans, hornbills and plenty of forest species.
