Shumba Safaris serves as an adventure of confidence that which is proudly aimed at clientele satisfaction on connecting Africa to explore with our esteemed clients. Our 2-day Lake Manyara & Ngorongoro Crater safari package was designed to offer visitors, with a timely constraint, yet a very intense Tanzanian Northern Circuit wildlife safari experience. You will experience the excitement of wildlife safari, or even a photographic safari in two of the most spectacular national game parks in Tanzania. This unforgettable safari will take you to the Ngorongoro Crater, featuring one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa. Here you will witness an amazing spectacle of African wildlife – inside a self-contained world, teeming with animals. Your tour will also take you to the Lake Manyara National Park, one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a shallow but huge soda lake, at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The size of both the selected Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater national parks, make them a perfect choice for our shorter safaris, or a photographic safari.
Day 1 Lake Manyara
Our professional tour guide/driver will meet you in Arusha town where he or she will deliver a short safari info briefing, after which, we travel to the Lake Manyara National Park. We will for about 2 ½ hours on a distance of 130km to arrive in time for lunch at the lodge, then 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. Our stay would be pre-booked at Eileen`s tree inn lodge.

Day 2 Ngorongoro Crater
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 a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park 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 the 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 back to Arusha where we will end our safari.
