I loved the wildlife we saw, the accommodations we stayed in - everything. All combined to give you a wonderful Africa experience.

This was our first park. It seemed a little smaller than the others we visited but, it was much more lush. We observed a variety of baboon and monkeys here that we did not see elsewhere. Convenient to lodging and was not crowded at all. Great introduction. We stayed at Kirimuru Tents which was awesome!

Very dry and dusty, also was very hot and uncomfortable. Would recommend going at a different time of year, we went in February.

Lake Manyara is an interesting location that is very different from what one expects in East Africa. The lake provides year-round water, which makes Lake Manyara green and lush, and this location is one of the best for monkeys and baboons. We found, however, that the game drive here was a bit lacking compared to the other three locations we visited. The lake is full of flamingos, but there are no roads passing nearby (at least there were not when we did our game drive), so all we saw was a pink haze in the distance. We also saw small numbers of elephants, lions, giraffes... but after being spoiled by the amount of wildlife in the other parks, we were a wee bit disappointed. It is interesting to see this location, due to its dissimilarity from the other parks, but if you want to save money by cutting a day from the safari, this is the one to skip.
