A drive through Manyara is a relaxed drive and certainly deserves your time. Lake Manyara itself sits in the middle of the park. The lake takes up much of the park leaving a strip of land running down its shores where game is concentrated. The pink flamingos are the most visible inhabitants of the lakeshore but there are hippos and some other animals, making the lake quite an active habitat.

Tarangire is about 120 kilometers west of the city of Arusha. It is a quiet park located just off the main safari route in Northern Tanzania. It covers approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,096 square miles). Tarangire is famous for its elephant migration and quiet authentic safari atmosphere. Tarangire’s attractions include: elephants, migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and a large collection of colourful birds.
