3Days 2Nights Lodge / Camping Safari Itinerary

Combination of Lake Manyara / Tarangire / Ngorongoro


Day 1: Moshi/Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park

Early morning drive from Moshi/Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park, taking approximately 4 hours. Lake Manyara National Park supports a wide variety of wildlife due to its diverse habitats including sizable populations of elephant, hippo, giraffe, and buffalo. Views of the Great Rift Valley escarpment looms on the horizon in the east, forming an impressive backdrop to the lake. You will have a picnic lunch in the park before an afternoon game drive.

Accommodation options: Camping / Tented Camp / Lodge

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater full day

Breakfast will be provided before heading to Ngorongoro Crater. We will descend into the 600-meter deep Crater, which has a 19-kilometre diameter, making it one of the world’s largest unbroken and unflooded calderas. Ngorongoro is home to the highly endangered black rhino and the largest herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo. Predators also live in the Crater; here there is plenty of opportunity to spot a hunt. Most of the predators found in the Crater include lions, hyenas, cheetahs, jackals and serval cats. We will enjoy a picnic lunch before leaving the Crater – where plenty of wildlife can still be spotted.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park to Moshi/Arusha

The park contains a range of different habitats from grasslands and woods, to low hills, scrub and swampland in the south. Tarangire is south east of Lake Manyara and is well-known as the home of elephants and the mystical baobab trees, the elephants’ favourite food. Other wildlife that can be spotted are waterbuck, impala, wildebeest, zebra and buffalo as well as predators including lions and hyenas. The stunning birds of East Africa are also prevalent, such as the Bateleur eagle and Superb starling. After a picnic lunch we will enjoy an afternoon game drive before heading back to Moshi/Arusha taking approximately 4 hours.
