This tour will take you to the most visited destination with high wildlife concentration and amazing sceneries. This place is characterized by the large herds of elephants, tree-climbing lions, and the fascinating baobab trees. In Ngorongoro, some 20,000 mammals live including about 20 black rhinoceros, making the crater the best place in Tanzania to see these amazing creatures.
Places to visit: Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park
Day 1: Arusha -Tarangire National Park
We leave Arusha for Tarangire National Park. This park covering approximately 2600 square kilometers is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, eland, and oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains when they migrate again to good grazing areas.
Accommodation and meals: Maramboi Tented Lodge
Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater
After having an early breakfast, we depart for the Ngorongoro crater and arrive in time for lunch. Ngorongoro’s caldera shelters the most beautiful wildlife haven on earth. The rich pasture and permanent water of the Crater floor supports a resident population of some 20,000 to 25,000 large mammals. They are not confined by the Crater walls and can leave freely; they stay because conditions are favorable. Since most of the Crater floor is grassland, grazing animals predominate such as gnu, zebra, gazelles, buffalo, eland and kongoni (Coke’s hartebeest), and warthogs.
Accommodation and meals: Marera View Lodge
Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park/Arusha
We depart in the morning for Lake Manyara and arrive around lunchtime. Lake Manyara is known for its tree-climbing lions and has the most pachyderms per km sq. in Tanzania. As visitors enter the gate, they pass into the lush forest, home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Buffaloes and hippos also lurch in the adjacent Hippo Pool. The vegetation eventually merges into a flat-topped acacia woodland where, in the heat of the day, lions can be seen stretched on the branches of these trees – a habit prevalent to Manyara lions. Later in the afternoon drive back to Arusha
Accommodation: Can be arranged with an extra cost
