Lake Manyara National Park, is located in Tanzania.  At about 90 square miles, it’s a smaller park.  Don’t let that dissuade you, it’s but full of beauty, including the lake itself and plenty of wildlife.

1:  It was difficult to get them to pose for this family portrait.  Someone was having nothing of it.

2:  Judging by how torn up this elephant’s ears are, it can’t be an easy life.

3: If there was any doubt that elephants travel in a line.  Notice how the calves are strategically placed between adults to protect them from predators.
