Since we went to Africa at the tail end of the rainy season (and there wasn’t much rainfall that rainy season either), the lake was mostly dry. Nonetheless, there was no shortage of things to see!
|Lake Manyara is drying up — the dry season is beginning…
All those pink dots are flamingos. I never thought
I’d see so many flamingos in Africa!
|A herd of zebras grazing by the lake|
|We drove through some jungle and there were monkeys/babooons everywhere!
I think this is a Blue Monkey.
|Vervet Monkey. These guys were much cuter. 🙂|
|Another Blue Monkey. He looked so thoughtful.
Although 1 minute later, it was quite a different story!
|On our way out of the jungle, we saw an Impala.
Yup, that’s what the Chevy Impala is named after — an African antelope!
|Next stop, hippo pool!|
|Lazy hippos. How cute are the little birdies sitting on their back?|
|Giraffes! Once we hit a clearing, these guys were everywhere!
I love their long legs and they’re so graceful in person.
And that’s day 1 of our safari! Stay tuned as the honeymoon series keeps on going… 🙂
