3 DAY 2 NIGHT LAKE MANYARA , TARANGIRE & NGORONGORO SAFARI
3 DAY 2 NIGHT LAKE MANYARA, TARANGIRE & NGORONGORO SAFARI
Day 1 – Moshi – Lake Manyara
Non-game-viewing travel time: 3 ½ hours
Distance: 130 km
Meet our professional tours guide/driver in Arusha town, who will deliver a short safari info briefing, after which, we travel to the Lake Manyara National Park. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. After lunch, we head into the Lake Manyara National Park. 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.
Dinner and overnight at Pembeni luxury tented Camp.
Day 2 – Lake Manyara National Park – Ngorongoro Crater
Non-game-viewing travel time: 2 hours & 3 ½ hours
Distance: 60km & 155 km
After breakfast, we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a morning, half-day game drive. 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 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 the Tarangire National Park.
Dinner and overnight at Pembeni Luxury tented camp
Day 3 – Tarangire National Park – Arusha
Non-game-viewing travel time: 2 hours
Distance: 120 km
After breakfast do we head into the 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. Later you will exit Tarangire and heading back to Moshi or be dropped at Kilimanjaro International Airport for overnight.
