“Near the end of the night drive we stumbled upon a male lion crossing the road; after following him for a few minutes he began to quietly roar. It turns out that he was calling the female, who was a little way away. She responded to his call and for about five minutes they were calling back and forth to each other, raising the volume each time. I lost the bet with Valerie, since, in the end, the male lion slowly got up and walked to the female. We followed the happy couple for some time and, whenever we lost sight of one or both, I felt an incredible rush because we were in an open jeep and who knows what they...”

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AT LAKE MANYARA TREE LODGE
Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience as breathtaking as its views. Make an adventure out of your stay and participate in some extraordinary additional activities on offer including:
“We enjoyed a brief stay at the Lake Manyara Tree Lodge upon arrival to Tanzania. Despite it being REALLY dry at at the time, we really enjoyed our time at the camp as well as our games drives in and out of the park.”
The lodge itself is absolutely beautiful. We loved staying in our own private tree house, complete with a bubble bath, outdoor shower, sitting area, and more. The kitchen theater and dinner beneath a ring of torches at night was very romantic. We go to see many elephants, giraffes, and hippos up close in addition to a plethora of other animals and birds.
