My Cat's Stuck in a Tree
Lake Manyara is perhaps most famous for its tree-climbing lions. They are a rare sight, so we felt fortunate to see this young male right near the road. The lions climb trees to reach cooler air that is easier to breathe.

See more lion photos from this trip in a special lion gallery.
