Lake Manyara NP & Amani Nature Reserve

The Maasia steps decent on to Lake Manyara
Our Christmas trip to the Serengeti had been put on hold thanks to car trouble on the way north from Dar es Salaam to Arusha.  So instead, after a delay in Moshi to get the car sorted, we'd changed plans and headed to Tarangire national park.

But now, the tsetse flies of Tarangire national park finally got the better of us and we decided to check out Lake Manyara national park which is about an hour away.

Tarangire National Park - December 2015

Home of the elephants, Tarangire National Park, Tanzania
2015 was a disaster for us in terms of bush time as a result of work in Kenya for 6 months and then car trouble! Car trouble has finally caught up with us and I guess in hindsight, if there was ever a good time to cop it, may as well be the year that has already been a bad one in terms of bush time.
