We depart from Moshi in the morning (picking up on the way those who enter in Arusha) and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. After the completion of formalities, we proceed with a game drive into this park, which is very famous for its lush green foliage, varied bird life, tree-climbing lions, hippos, elephants, wildebeests, baboons, thousands of flamingos that inhabit the lake shore and many others. We have a picnic lunch and continue with the game drive until late evening. Overnight and dinner at the accommodation of your category of choice (camping/simple lodge/standard lodge).
