DAY 2

ARUSHA-LAKE MANYARA
We transfer into Lake Manyara for morning game drive and lunch, a classic safari pic-nic, and enjoy our final glimpse of the great wilds of the Northern Tanzania. Lake Manyara offers an insight into the Great Rift Valley system and the adaptation of many herd animals and magnificent birdlife. We continue Esilalei Maasai Village to explore the area and our school project. In the late afternoon, we zig zag our way up the Rift Valley Escarpment and onto the Rift Valley escarpment wall for overnight. The lodge is located in the farmlands bordering the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where the wildlife roam nearby, but the best part is the 180 degrees of views right in front of you.

Tonight we are staying on the crater rim, it is quite common for zebra, buffalo and even elephant to be grazing right outside the lodge.
