Even scientists still express curiosity on how possible it is for the king of the jungle, the Lion, to climb over branches of trees. This is very common only for elusive Leopards but not for Lions. The nature of Lake Manyara National Park has made this behaviour possible, and if you are lucky enough you will have the chance to witness lions climbing over branches of trees during the game drive.

Day 3 & 4: Karatu to Serengeti National Park

When it comes to adventures, Serengeti has a lot to offer.This is due to the presence of enough water sources in central Serengeti that supports huge concentrations of animals such as wildebeests, Zebras, Impalas, Gazelles, and many more. These animals support the existence of predators hence they are of paramount importance to park ecology. After reaching Serengeti enjoy your picnic lunch from specially prepared areas where you can also spot several animals roaming around in the grassy plain.
