Lake Manyara National Park – Tanzania

Our last day with Tanzania Travel and John Timothy (pictured below), guide extraordinaire, was spent traveling from the very deluxe digs at Endoro Lodge. Half a day to drive the lakeside not seeing the famous lions that like to climb trees. We did see a nice collection of shorebirds and giraffes plus one type of monkey that we hadn’t seen before. In fact, I think the vervet monkey was the only type of monkey that we’d seen on our trip. Certainly they all looked alike, but this one, possibly a sykes monkey, the only other one in my guide to southern African mammals.

Blue monkey or Sykes? Definitely not your usual vervet


Additionally there’s the ebony craft shop with huge amounts of the black wood that won’t float. We came back with two small pieces (a man who’s awfully good looking and a woman) that sit in our kitchen. The requisite Obama badges were laid upon the eager Tanzanians and we were asked to pay outside so the shopkeeper didn’t get the usual rake-off. John wasn’t there to guide us, so we caved and gave them their $20 (or Tanzanian shilling equivalent).
