Day by day Itinerary

Arusha – Tarangire National Park

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and you will travel to Tarangire National Park. This park with its 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, Leopard and Cheetah. 

Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park and drive to the Lodge or public camp site, where you will spend the night. FB.

Tarangire Area – Ngorongoro Crater

After an early start you will make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600 m deep, approximately 22 km wide and the massive caldera is home to an amazing variety of animals. 

On your game drive you have the possibility of seeing all different kinds of mammals ranging from the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, Zebra, Wildebeest, Hippo’s and mountain reedbucks. 

You might also see spotted hyenas, Jackals and some of the more than 350 bird species of the area. After a picnic lunch in the crater and some more game viewing, you will leave the crater in the afternoon and travel back to your Lodge or Camp, where you will overnight. FB.

Lake Manyara National Park – Arusha

After breakfast, you will leave the highlands and continue to Lake Manyara National Park, one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania. The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and it is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos – an awesome (pink) sight. 

However, more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals. Troops of baboon and monkeys live in the forests, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests on the grassy plains and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands. After an intensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to arrive in Arusha by the late afternoon.    END OF TOUR.
