African Safari, Part II – Lake Manyara National Park

After a wonderful couple of days in Tarangire National Park, our guide took us just a few kilometers up the road to Lake Manyara National Park. We spent about half a day there, but it was enough time to really get a feel for the place. The park is known as one of Tanzania’s premiere birdwatching areas, and we saw a wide variety of both birds and other wildlife.

African Safari, Part I – Tarangire National Park

Have you ever had the desire to see exotic birds and wildlife up close, in their natural habitat? I was fortunate enough to do just that last year when we took a nine-day safari through Tanzania. We visited several of Tanzania’s national parks, and I’ll write about many of them over time. In this post, I’ll focus on the experience we had in Tarangire National Park.
