Morning arrival in Arusha, meeting and departure Lake Manyara National Park.
- A safari on Lake Manyara, which is located not far from Arusha in northern Tanzania at the base of the Great Rift Valley. The coast of the lake includes five plant zones. On the lake shore live buffalos, leopards, rhinos. A lot of giraffes and antelopes. Unlike the savannah, there are wooded thickets in which large families of monkeys live, and the lions that live in the park climb trees. The alkaline waters of the lake attract more than 400 species of birds, including pink flamingos, which are especially noticeable against the gray stones of the coast. In places where the rift is close to the lake, there are hot springs. Ernest Hemingway called the lake the most beautiful of what he saw in Africa! (Wikipedia)
