Experience the ultimate 4-day Northern Tanzania safari with this fully inclusive package that explores the Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and the stunning Lake Manyara National Park. This safari is perfect for anyone who wants to witness the incredible wildlife and landscapes of Tanzania’s iconic northern parks in just four days.
You’ll be picked up from your hotel or place of stay in Arusha at 08:30 am and start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley for a full-day game safari in Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size (230 square kilometers), Manyara Lake is famous for its green scenery, varied bird life, and tree-climbing lions, hippos, and baboons. The landscapes of Lake Manyara cannot be described with words, and the game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities for giraffes. At sunset, you’ll drive to sleep at the lodge of your choice and budget.
Start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. Between game drives, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo pool lake. This is a full-day game drive and again return to your accommodation for our evening meal.
Tarangire National Park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees on the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, and, of course, elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views of the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic). In the afternoon, we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation.
Spend the whole day in Tarangire National Park with a morning walking safari accompanied by a park ranger. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lions, leopards, cheetahs, and up to six thousand elephants. The game drive takes us until 3:00 pm when we drive out of the park back to Arusha where you will be dropped off at the place of your choice, whether it’s the airport or a hotel in the city.
