Day 1 – Tarangire National Park

Your Tanzania Safari & Zanzibar Beach Holiday Package starts today with the Tarangire National Park, about a 2 hour drive from the tourist capital Arusha. Tarangire Park is named after the Tarangire River, which is the park’s lifeblood. The Tarangire National Park is home to Africa’s largest population of elephants and the second-largest population of lions. Baobab trees are plentiful throughout the park and can easily be spotted because of their distinctive silhouettes against the blue sky. In the evening we will drive to Africa Safari Lake Manyara where you overnight in a Safari tent with shared bathrooms. You can take a dive into the swimming pool and enjoy a sun-downer drink at the bar.

Day 2 – Lake Manyara National Park

At 325 square kilometers, Manyara National Park is certainly small by Tanzanian standards, but don’t let that put you off. It is, quite simply, amazing. Bordered by the dramatic Rift Valley, the rest of the park is a pretty medley of grassy floodplains, enchanting evergreen forest, acacia woodland and twinkling groundwater springs. And of course Lake Manyara itself, a glittering and iridescent alkaline pool that expands and contracts with the seasons. Here you can find a big population of flamingo. In the afternoon you drive back to Africa Safari Lake Manyara where you spend the night in your Safari tent again.

Day 6 – 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. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cavernous bowl-shaped crater is in fact a caldera, formed two to three million years ago when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. Today, this ‘flat pan’ is covered with grasses and home to an unprecedented number animals including the black rhino, lions, magnificent elephants and smaller game. Due to the elevation of the Ngorongoro area it enjoys more rain throughout the year so most of the animals don’t need to migrate. With a bit of luck the ‘Big Five’ can be spotted during one game drive only. After this exciting game drive we return back to Arusha where you overnight at the Africa Safari Arusha Lodge.
