Vistas of honey-lit plains at sunset so beautiful, it’s worth the trip just to witness this. The genuine smiles of the Maasai people, giving you an immediate warming glow inside.

Lake Manyara National Park
After early morning breakfast today, head off to lake Manyara national park, the park known for its tree climbing lions. No one real knows why they climb and roost in trees, it’s been suggested that this unusual behavior probably started during a fly epidemic when the cats climbed high to escape the swarms of biting flies on the ground, so present ongoing behavior is now part of their collective memory Lake Manyara National Park is small, stretching only some 330 square km(127square miles)along the base of the escarpment with two thirds of its surface taken up by shallow alkaline Lake Manyara It’s range of ecosystems at different elevations makes for dramatic differences scenery. At one moment you’re travelling through a fair -tale forest (called ground water forest). In the deep forest the old tuskers still roam, blue monkeys swing among huge fig trees, tamarind trees, giant baobabs, and mahoganies using their long tail as an extra limb. In the evening as motes of dusty sun-light dance in the setting sun, there’s an excellent chance of spotting a troop of more than 300 olive baboons sitting in the road, grooming each other, chatting, and dozing, while dozens of naughty babies play around them and old granddaddies look on with knowing eyes. In the afternoon drive back to Kilimanjaro Airport to connect with your tonight flight back home.
