The ultimate 3 Days Safari in Tanzania

The ultimate 3 days Safari trip! You’ll be visiting Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara and the impressive Ngorongoro Crater. Look out for the famous tree climbing lions in the forest of Lake Manyara Safari Park!

You will see many elephants during your 3 Days Safari in Tanzania

Day 1 – Tarangire National Park

Your Tour starts with the drive to Tarangire Safari Park, Tanzania’s fifth largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, cheetah and up to six thousand elephant. You will overnight in the beautiful Africa Safari Lake Manyara Lodge where you can relax in the large swimming pool after your first Game Drives in Tanzania.

Day 2 – Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast you will proceed to Ngorongoro Conservation Area and descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside this ‘natural zoo’ often described as one of the wonders of the world. It is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and a a natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s densest animal populations. It is one of the few places where the rare black rhino can be observed in their natural setting. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. With a bit of luck the ‘Big Five’ can be spotted during one game drive only. After the game drive we will drive back to Africa Safari Lake Manyara Lodge.

Day 3 – Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast we depart for Lake Manyara Safari Park. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is recognized for its incredible beauty. You can see many game animals such as Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Impala, hippo and others. The protected area lies picturesquely as a narrow strip of shore between the western slope of the approximately 800-metre-high rift valley steep face and the soda-rich lake that lends the park its name. You will encounter very different habitats in a small area: the rocky Rift Valley escarpment, a green forest, acacia forests, the open grass savanna, swamps and of course the lake and its shore – truly an exotic environment. After leaving the park you will drive back to Arusha.
