Taste of Tanzania 3 days safari

Day 1: Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park.

After breakfast the tour departs. First stop is Arusha town for any last minute purchases before we head off on safari. Afterwards we head towards the Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive with picnic lunch at the park. Manyara is a very good birding area with more than 450 species of birds recorded and big flocks of pink flamingoes. There is also a great sighting of Elephants, Giraffes basking on the shore of the lake, Buffaloes, Baboons, Wildebeest and tree climbing lions (don’t throw your heart on these since its rear and just see it as a bonus). After an extensive game drive you will leave the park in the afternoon and drive to the selected Lodge/Tented camp for overnight.

  • All meals included.

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater

After an early start you will drive into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and down into the crater to view wildlife. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro conservation Area supports avast 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 it’s 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 visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater.

  • All meals included.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park – Arusha

After breakfast you continue to another park on the Northern Circuit, the Tarangire National Park. This park with its endless grasslands, huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River and seasonal swamps is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. Animals gather at the river and you should be able to see elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs and reedbucks all year round. Furthermore, the park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted.
