Today its a 7am Game Drive from the Manyara Tree Lodge with Titus who is very knowledgeable about the local animals, birds, trees and plants. He is the father of a 13 year old at boarding school in Arusha and is delighted to be a guide at And Beyond because he says it is one of the best companies around.
Today we watch a fascinating group of 40+ hippos in a mud pool near Lake Manyara, observe a troop of over a hundred baboons of all ages, eat a lovely breakfast overlooking the marshland of the lake watching hundreds of flamingoes, both stationary in the shallow waters, and in flight, and rest in the shade of our tree house in the afternoon.
Lake Manyara is yet another very interesting protected place in this very interesting country!
