Pack your baggage and join this exciting 3 -day safari holiday in Tanzania! During this safari, you will go on extensive game drives in Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and Ngorongoro Crater; you will have the opportunity to spot wildlife in their natural habitat and explore the magnificent Tanzanian national parks.
Day 1 – To Tarangire national park
After breakfast we drive from Moshi/Arusha heading to Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of 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. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings.
Day 2 – Ngorongoro Crater
Today after breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full game drive until noon where we will break for picnic lunch, After lunch you will continue with the game drive until evening, ascend from the crater and drive to your camp/lodge in Karatu for dinner and overnight.
The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African 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 area is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot.
Day 3 – Lake Manyara National Park – Arusha/Moshi
Today we travel to the Lake Manyara National Park for morning game drive until lunch time where we will break for picnic lunch, After lunch we continues with the game drive until evening where you exit from the park and drive back to Arusha/Moshi.
This impressive park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting 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 habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Manyara’s famous tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.
