What to Expect
Day 1: Arusha -Lake Manyara

At 7am, you will be picked up from the Arusha by your safari guide and driven to Lake Manyara National Park.

Enjoy a game drive in the park!

After lunch, drive onto Karatu for overnight.

Overnight at Kudu Lodge  

Lunch and dinner provided.

4 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

Lake Manyara is a beautiful little park, which is famous for its tree-climbing lions, elephants and large troops of baboons. The park is home to an amazing variety of birds and animals considering its small size. A short visit to this serene park will greatly diversify your safari experience as the lush green jungle habitat is of stark contrast to the other parks you will visit during your safari.

Day 2:Lake Manyara –Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, drive to Ngorongoro and descend into the Crater for a game tour.

Overnight at Kudu Lodge  

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. 2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

Often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometres wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals – including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.

Day 3:  Ngorongoro- Arusha

At 8am you will be picked up from hotel by your driver guide and driven to Tarangire National Park

After lunch drive to Arusha drop off point to be advised  

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.

2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided

Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June - November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.
