The name “is a Masai description not for the lake, but in general for a lake shore region. Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge indifferently along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper lightly between the ancient mahogany trees, graceful bushbuck tread carefully through the shadows. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favoured worry of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants and then later drive back to Arusha reaching there at approximately 4pm. Depending on your schedule we will drop you off at the airport on time for your flight back home. Lodging Accommodation: none. Camping Accommodation: none. Meal Plan: Breakfast and Lunch.

    Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

    This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
