Land of the Giants
Tarangire and Lake Manyara

Dotted with giant baobab trees, Tarangire National Park is home to herds of buffaloes, elephants and a plethora of wildlife, which makes it a perfect home for lions and leopards. Neighbouring Lake Manyara along the Rift Valley is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and large numbers of flamingos on its shores. With less distance to cover than in the Serengeti, you can easily spend hours observing and photographing the natural world in intricate detail without needing to traverse a vast expanse of land; this is slow-time safari at its best.
