Tarangire or Lk Manyara at end of August?

After reading cathe_rio's post, I have a question of my own: we will start a Northern Circuit safari on August 29. Our route will be Lake Manyara, Oldupai Gorge, Serengeti, then Ngorongoro Crater.

At this time of year (very end of August), is Lake Manyara or Tarangire better to visit?

I would opt for Tarangire in order to see the large herds of elephants which gather there then.

Suffrin pain twice in a day.

Tarangire! (But if you have time passsing the gate of Manyara take a look in there too.)

Another vote for Tarangire.

But, how many days total for your safari? If time allows, you can visit both.

Tarangire has a mini-migration during the period July/Oct, so lots of ellees, zebra, predators and birds along with the baobab landscape. Ideally, Tarangire deserves 2/days, though Manyara is smaller, a lovely park where you can also see ellees, blue monkeys, blackmane & tree-climbing lions (sometimes), can be covered in a few hours.
