After breakfast, our safari guide will pick you up with a Tanzanian smile from your lodgings for the drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara, a relatively small but diverse park 120km west of Arusha, is so named for the shallow salt lake that occupies a good seventy percent of the park’s land.

Flooding and drying seasonally, this soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species. While exploring the park, you’ll see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes, not only open grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab-dotted cliffs. You will have lunch at a picnic site arranged by a professional guide.

After your full day in the park, you will drive to our lodgings, where you will relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal with our comfortable quarters awaiting you.
