We headed out for a long drive to Lake Manyara. But to our pleasant surprise, the road was paved. Never enjoyed a paved road so much.
At Lake Manyara we encountered hundreds of baboons and monkeys (vervet monkeys and blue monkeys). With super cute babies. Here’s a mother telling her infant not to run away. Tail comes in handy.
He finally broke free
Female baboons have a pink butt when they are in estrus to tell the male. Male baboons have a black butt.
Then another drive on paved roads to Tarangire. Tarangire is another national park and is home to the largest concentration of elephants.
Momma and baby.
The lodge is literally in the middle of nowhere but is stunning.
