3-day taste of Tanzania’s finest safaris

During this 3-day safari, you will visit the Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Park as well as the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These three tourist destinations give a good representation of the golden tourist experience that Tanzania has to offer.

ITINERARY

DAY 1 ARUSHA TO LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast, a driver/guide will pick you up and transfer you to Lake Manyara National Park, one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania. The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and it is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos – an awesome (pink) sight. However, more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals. Troops of monkeys live in the forests, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests on the grassy plains, and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands.

After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands.

Dinner and overnight stay at an accommodation of your choice.

DAY 2 NGORONGORO CRATER

On the morning of day 2, after breakfast, you will drive into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600 m deep, and approximately 20 km wide and the massive caldera is home to an amazing variety of animals. On your game drive, you have the possibility of seeing all different kinds of mammals ranging from the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard – to Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks. You might also see spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs, and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area.

After lunch in the crater and some more game viewing, you will leave the crater in the afternoon and travel back to your accommodation of choice

Dinner and overnight stay at an accommodation of your choice.

DAY 3 TRANSFER TO TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK AND EXIT TO ARUSHA

After breakfast on your third and final day, we will head out towards the Northern Circuit on our way to the Tarangire National Park. This park with its endless grasslands, huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River, and seasonal swamps is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. Very many animals regularly gather at the river and you should be able to see elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs and reedbucks anytime you visit this area.

Tarangire National Park is also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted.

When your wildlife extravaganza is complete, you will exit and return to Arusha or request to be dropped at any other location of your choice.
