Day 1: Moshi/Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Today your tour would be started from the Tarangire National Park which is notably marked for its features such as the huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River and seasonal swamps that is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. You would be picked up from your hotel early after your breakfast and head for this park with our experienced guide. In the famous Tarangire River, the only source of water in the region, you would have the opportunity to find a lot of African games that include elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthog’s reedbucks, buffaloes, zebras and even the lions. While Leopards are seen every once in a while, cheetahs are rarely spotted. This would be the most fabulous experience for you to view the games through the open roof of our jeep. After the game drive you have to leave the park in the late afternoon and drive to the lodge, where you will spend the night.
Day 2: Tarangire Area to Ngorongoro Crater to Karatu
After an early start you will make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands. The exotic beauty and the varieties of games living here are some of the opportunities that no traveler want to lose on a visit to Tanzania. This is a massive carter of about 600 m. deep and its width is approximately 20Km. A few of the varieties of animals it hosts include the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks. Even you can spot the hyenas and the more than 500 bird species in the region has justifiably made it a paradise for the bird lovers. You would be served the lunch on the crater and in the late of the afternoon you have to travel back to Karatu, where you will overnight at the lodge.
Day 3: Karatu to Lake Manyara National Park to Moshi/Arusha
After breakfast, you will leave the highlands and continue to Lake Manyara National Park, one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania. The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and it is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos – an awesome (pink) sight. However more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals. Troops of monkeys live in the forests, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests on the grassy plains and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands. After an intensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to Moshi/Arusha by the late afternoon or early evening.
