Day 1: Arusha - Lake Manyara

Meru slopes Tours and Safaris’ professional tour guide / driver in Arusha town who will deliver a short safari info briefing, after which you travel to the Lake Manyara National Park. You arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. After lunch, you head to the Lake Manyara National Park.

This impressive 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's famous tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park - Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast you descend 600 meters into this magnificent crater for a morning half-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania's last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants.

Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater, after which you travel to the Tarangire National Park. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park - Arusha

After breakfast you head into the Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive. 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 fringe-eared oryx, as well as a few ashy starlings. You return to the lodge for lunch, after which you will depart for Arusha town and you will end your African safari adventure.

Location

Starting off and ending at Arusha, this tour will take you through Lake Manyara National Tarangire National Park, and Ngorongoro Crater.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.

The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the sixth-largest national park in Tanzania and is located at Manyara Region, behind the national parks of Ruaha, Serengeti, Mikumi, Katavi, and Mkomazi. The name originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park., the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons.

During the dry season, animals migrate to Tarangire National Park from Manyara National Park. The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern parks. The hilly landscape has vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bush, and high grasses.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater was once a gigantic volcano. It is a deep volcanic caldera, a breathtaking natural wonder. Before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with 600 meters deep. Nearly three million years old, this ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
