Location

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park, which encompasses an area of 330 square kilometers, of which 200 square kilometers is the lake, was proclaimed a game reserve in 1957 and registered three years later as a national park. The park is situated between the 600-meter high escarpment of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara and is 130 kilometers from Arusha.

Ngorongoro Conservation

Nearly three million years ago Ngorongoro towered alongside Mount Kilimanjaro as one of the highest peaks in Africa. Forged during the tumultuous birth of the Rift Valley, its volcanic top erupted at the time that ancient man first walked the plains. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) covers some 8,300 square kilometers. It boasts the finest blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeological sites in Africa.

Serengeti National Park

The park covers 14,763 square kilometers of endless rolling plains, which reach up to the Kenyan border and extends almost to Lake Victoria. The park is flourishing with magnificent wildlife. An estimated three million large animals roam the plains. People of the Maasai Tribe called it Siringitu - ‘the place where the land moves on forever.’ The Serengeti is known as one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in the world.

Tarangire National Park

This park is known for its elephants. You will see these enormous creatures travel in families and you surely will not miss the extraordinary care they take of their young. The elephants tend to travel in packs and in the same paths as they have taken year after year. When they see your vehicle coming closer, they will gather around their young to protect them and lead them on their way.

Food

At sunrise, after a bowl of porridge, some toast, fried egg and sausages, it’s another beautiful day to start your day. Dinner will start with a fresh soup either made of carrot, cucumber, pumpkin or vegetable followed by a main course and some fruit. Later on, you will have either a hot cup of tea, energy drink, hot chocolate or coffee.
