Let's see....where did we leave-off?? After we left Tarangire, we headed for a smaller, more compact game preservation area in a place called Lake Manyara.
Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a truly a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. Our guide-book said that "The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience." Actually...in the "animal department, we were a little disappointed, but the place was certainly beautiful!
