You will experience the excitement of game viewing in three 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 clients will witness an amazing spectacle of African wildlife – inside a self-contained world teeming with animals. The tour will also take us 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. Finally, our African safari tour will also take us to the Tarangire National Park, which features some of the greatest concentration of game in Tanzania after Ngorongoro Crater, although less crowded and unspoiled, whilst possessing a wild natural beauty. The size of the selected Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks, make them a perfect choice for our shorter safaris.
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. Breakfast x1, Lunch x1, Dinner x1
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 Tarangire National Park. Our stay would be pre-booked at Eileen tree camp where we shall be acclimatized to the peaceful serenity with awesome calmness. Breakfast x1, Lunch x1, Dinner x1
Day 3 Tarangire National Park
After breakfast we do head into the Tarangire National Park to enjoy the morning game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. We return to the lodge for lunch after which we will depart for Arusha town and we will end our safari.
