Day 2: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

You will be picked up at your hotel in Arusha / Moshi at 8 a.m. and transferred to the Tarangire National Park to start off your game viewing experience in this magnificent park.

Tarangire National Park is famous for its large collection of baobab trees, spectacular large mammal population, and a variety of bird species, not to mention one of the largest concentrations of elephants in the country.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater

You will depart the lodge at around 6 a.m. and head to the Ngorongoro Crater for your Second game drive. The crater is not only the largest unbroken caldera in the world but it is also one of the new seven natural wonders of Africa.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area 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. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here.

After your morning game drive, you will take a break to enjoy your packed lunch at the Hippo Pool Picnic site. After lunch, you will be transferred back to Fig big tree lodge or Jambo lodge for dinner and overnight.

The landscapes of Lake Manyara are something that can not be described with words, and the game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes in the foreground and the lake in the background.
