The Game drive starts from Lake Manyara National Park gate at 19h30. Here you will be introduced to your guides and be given a brief introduction talk about the 'do's and don'ts' while on a night game drive. Your drive should start around 20:00 from where you head into the thick ground-water forest of Lake Manyara. Porcupines, genets and civet cats are frequent visitors to the forest. From the forest, you head down towards the lake following the Simba River to the hippo pools. Hippos are nocturnal animals (active by night) and it is highly likely to see many of these beasts grazing on the side of the road. It is a rare sight to see a hippo out of the water. Your drive will return back through the ground water forest and have you back at the park gate around 22h30.
