Manyara is a relatively small park but defined by a diverse range of flora and fauna, 120km west of Arusha. The park’s namesake is a shallow, Salt Lake. It covers a large area of the park, flooding and drying with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species.
On your exploration of the park, you will get the chance to see monkeys, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant 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.
After a full day in the Park, you will drive to your accommodation, where you will have ample time to relax and enjoy dinner.

Day 2Manyara National Park-Serengeti National Park

After breakfast drive up the crater highlands, stopping at the rim for a spectacular view of the Ngorongoro Crater- a UNESCO world heritage site, formed millions of years ago, is 600 m deep and covers roughly around 260 square kilometers. Continuing as far as the eye can see is the vast Serengeti. In the local dialect, Serengeti means “endless plain” and this 6900 sq. mile (18000 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million wildebeest. January to April marks the start and end respectively of the wildebeest, Plain’s Zebras and Thompson’s Gazelles’ migration season. It is also the period when wildebeest give birth to their calves and therefore you are in for a rare wilderness treat. Large predators including lions, cheetahs and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrate throughout the park. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax, bat eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboons and African hares also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. After the game drive, we will head to a Mid-range tented camp located inside Serengeti NP for refreshments, dinner and overnight stay.
