Best things to do in Manyara and sightseeing in Manyara
Tarangire National Park - Manyara
After early breakfast you will begin your adventure as you drive to Tarangire National Park with picnic Lunch, for a full day game drive in this third largest national park in Tanzania. It is the vast number of baobab trees that first capture the eye as you enter Tarangire. The gently rolling countryside is dotted with these majestic trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath them. The park is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of Tarangire River. Herds of wildebeest, zebra, elephant, gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains when they migrate again to good grazing areas. Good number of resident mammals will be seen. Over 300 bird species have been recorded in Tarangire. Get prepared for an interesting day. Late afternoon return to your Camp, enroute you will visit MAKONDE TRIBESMEN known for their curving skills; here you will learn how to curve etc. After this visit continue to your Lodge in good time for a cold beer!
