Early morning game drive comes back for breakfast, then check out and depart for Lake Manyara and arrive around lunchtime. Lake Manyara is known for its tree-climbing lions and has the most pachyderms per km sq. in Tanzania. As visitors enter the gate, they pass into the lush forest; home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys.
Buffaloes and hippos also lurch in the adjacent Hippo Pool. The vegetation eventually merges into a flat-topped acacia woodland where, in the heat of the day, lions can be seen stretched on the branches of these trees – a habit prevalent to Manyara lions.
