Tanzania Safari:

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara was our first safari stop. It's smaller than the other parks but has a certain charm to it. Unlike the other parks, parts of the park are forest so there are many more monkeys. Baboons are especially prevalent. Elephants, zebras and giraffes were all present in good numbers. We didn't see any predators here. One the most impressive sights was the massive flocks flamingos. They were too far off in the distance for a good picture but when they took flight, it looked like a pink wave flying through the air.
