Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire N. Park:
We will pick you from the Lodge/Lodge at 9:00 am and then we drive to Tarangire National Park for game viewing. 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. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge/Tented Camp/Hotel/Campsite.
Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater Tour :
Our day starts very early in the morning equipped with a picnic lunch we descend 2000 ft. down to the Crater floor by our 4×4 wheel drive vehicle for game viewing. Let’s explore this Garden of Eden. Ngorongoro is a huge and deep volcanic Crater. There’s rich pasture, swamps, forest, and permanent water on the Crater floor that’s why wildlife here is so diverse and numerous. There are up to 25.000 larger animals living here. It’d the best opportunity to see the Black Rhino and many other rare species like the black-manned lion. We will have a fantastic day and you will see wildlife at its best. Late afternoon we drive back to the Lodge/Tented Camp/Hotel/Campsite stays for dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Lake Manyara – Arusha N.Park:
After your breakfast, and then we drive to Lake Manyara National Park. This impressive National 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 is famous for a Tree-climbing lion, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake. Late afternoon we drive to Arusha National Park and stays for dinner and overnight at Lodge/Tented Camp/Hotel/Campsite.
Day 5: Arusha N. Park – Walking Safari and Game Drive – Arusha
After your breakfast, we will drive to Arusha N. Park. You will enjoy a half-day guided walking safari through the forest to the waterfall and the natural beauty of the hills, mountains, and river beds begging to be explored. Also, your guide will take you through the rain forest to the waterfalls; also you will see black and white Colobus monkeys, Zebras, Buffalo’s and a lot of antelopes. You will also have a chance to observe more than 400 bird species including Crowned Eagle, Lanner Falcon, and Levaillant Cuckoo.
After lunch in the bush:
You will be taken on a game drive through the Park, where you will enjoy the flora and fauna. We will drive you to seven Momella lakes full of pink flamingos and other water birds.
