Day by Day Overview
Meet our professional safari guide/driver in Arusha town and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park, one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas. The park consists of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park) at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitats attract a wide variety of animals including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants and its famous tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake. Spend the day enjoying game drives.
Dinner and overnight at the Safari Lodge, Marera Lodge, Bougainvillea Lodge or Eileen Trees Inn
After breakfast, we drive to Ngorongoro Crater and descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater, after which we travel to Tarangire National Park.
Dinner and overnight at the Safari Lodge – Bougainvillea
After breakfast we head into Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mostly low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of acacia woodland and giant African baobab trees with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals during Tanzania’s dry season. Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa as well as three rare species of animals – the greater kudu, the ringed-eared oryx and a few ashy starlings. After game drives, return to Arusha for onward arrangements such as accommodation or a transfer to Kilimanjaro International Airport.
