3 DAY SAFARI to Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park
DAY 1 – Tarangire National Park
Early morning breakfast at your lodge, with picnic lunch we drive 90minutes to Tarangire National Park for full day game drive. Tarangire is known for its vast herds of elephants. It is estimated that there are over 2,500 elephants in the park. We enjoy an outdoors lunch overlooking the bluff and viewing Tarangire’s plains. After the game drive we dine and stay overnight at our included lodging.
DAY 2 – Ngorongoro Crater
Today we visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5? – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this truly world-class attraction, also known as the ’8th Wonder of the World’. We return to the same lodging for dinner and our second overnight.
DAY 3 – Lake Manayara National Park
After breakfast, we depart the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two thirds of the park. At the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the ground water forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands and steep mountainsides . Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions.
Afterwards, we head back to Arusha or with prior arrangement, we can drop you off at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Clients can make flights departing after 1900 hours from JRO.
