This is the best tour for both who wish to experience the taste of the full game drive in Tanzania but having a limited time or budget.
On this tour, you will witness the ancient baobab trees and herd of the elephant family. Baobab trees and having a large herd of the Elephant makes Tarangire as a very distinctive feature compared to the other parks. Spot the tree climbing lions in Lake Manyara & enjoy the hospitality of a lodge & the romance of a tented camp in the Tanzanian bush.
Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park or Lake Manyara National Park
We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and take you to a Tarangire national park. Tarangire is famous for its diverse landscape with nine different vegetation zones. The park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and, of course, elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views to the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic). In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation.
Day 2: Tarangire National Park or Manyara National Park to Ngorongoro back to Arusha
Early after breakfast, proceed directly to the Crater floor for a full day crater tour with picnic lunches.
Ngorongoro Crater Called the eighth wonder of the world, the crater won’t fail to take your breath away as you stand on the rim looking down a 10-mile wide crater floor with abundant wildlife. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world covering approximately 259 sq. km’s with walls rising 610 meters from the crater floor. Before the Ngorongoro Volcano exploded and collapsed over 2 million years ago, it was one of the world’s tallest free-standing mountain. Now, it is home to more than 30,000 large mammals – mainly Zebras, wild beast, gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and warthog – and has the highest predator density in the world.
Later proceed back to Arusha in the evening
