Start your 2 days Tarangire and Lake Manyara safari with a visit to Tarangire National Park on the first day. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire river that crosses through the park, being the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. The park is famous for its massive number of elephants, baobab trees, leopard, and lions. Along the banks of Tarangire river, you will find herds of wildebeest and zebra, followed by grant’s gazelle, Thomson’s gazelle, and many others.
2nd day of your Tanzania safari, travel to Lake Manyara: Lake Manyara National Park boasts a higher diversity of plant and animal species than the far larger Serengeti. Lake Manyara’s thick forests are a unique and surprising habitat for sightings of lion, which are known to climb and lounge in the trees, as well as hunting on the grassy shores of the lake.
Other wildlife includes large herds of buffalo, endangered African wild dog, cheetah, Maasai giraffe, and impala. Troops of several hundred olive baboons can be encountered in the park, which is also home to Syke’s monkey, short-eared galago, Cape clawless otters, Egyptian mongoose, hippo, and klipspringer.
Lake Manyara is also an excellent bird watching destination, with flamingo and other fascinating species spotted in and around the soda lake. More than 400 species of birds, including waterfowl and migrants, can be found in the area.
