  • Tree-Climbing Lions of Lake Manyara

    June 13, 2016

    A Tree-Climbing Treat

    Lake Manyara, once the filming location for the classic Hollywood Tarzan movies, is a popular safari stop between Arusha and the Serengeti for a variety of reasons including its huge variety of bird-life and its wallowing hippos.

    However, it is the park's tree-climbing lions that are an especially popular sight with visitors. Up until recently, only Lake Manyara and Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park could boast this rare sight - although recent reports say that the phenomenon has now spread to the Serengeti as well.

    Our recent clients, Shwana & Jennifer, were lucky enough to spot them in both Lake Manyara and the Serengeti!

    Of course, this wasn't all they saw! In addition to catching a glimpse of the Wildebeest Migration in motion, they also spotted cheetahs, a variety of fascinating birds, and even a few topi!

    Guided by our experienced guide, Bashiru (the photographer on these shots), they crossed the Serengeti, ducked through Lake Manyara, and even paid a visit to the local Masai.
