Day 1: Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park – Mto wa Mbu Safari Tour

Pick up from your hotel / Airport and drive to the Lake Manyara National Park. The park, which stretches along the Rift Valley Escarpment, is named after the shallow alkaline Lake Manyara. The lake can be seen through a hue of pink, due to the large numbers of flamingos, seasonally flocking to its shores.
The more than 400 species of birds make this park a bird lovers’ paradise and on any given day 100 different species can be observed. Apart from the avian inhabitants, giraffes, elephants, monkeys, and antelopes can be spotted in the forest, acacia trees, and grasslands. With a bit of luck, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the famous tree-climbing lions, a somewhat uncommon trait for these large cats.

The park is home to the largest animal migration in the world and depending on the season you will be able to witness this spectacular event unfold.
The herds of wildebeest and zebras journey in the short rainy season of November and December from the hills in the north to the southern plains before returning to the north during the longer rainy season of April to June.
