Day 1 Arusha - Tarangire
You will be picked up in Arusha and driven to Tarangire National Park. Enjoy a game drive through the park with a picnic lunch. This park is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, elands and Oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of rain when they migrate again to good grazing areas. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. In the late afternoon you will go to Tarangire Public Campsite. Lunch and dinner included.
Day 2 Lake Manyara
After breakfast you will drive to Lake Manyara. Have a game drive in the park with a picnic lunch. When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley escarpment looms on the horizon forming an impressive backdrop to the lake. In the tall trees of the ground water forest, monkeys leap from branch to branch, and on the escarpment, elephants stand in the shade. Other animals frequently seen are zebras, impalas, monkeys, giraffes, buffalos, hippos, and others. Later you will drive to Panorama Inn in Karatu for your dinner and overnight. 3 meals included.
Day 3 Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha
After breakfast drive to Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive inside the crater. This is the best place in Tanzania to see black rhino as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-manned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and a variety of water birds. Other game that you can see includes leopard, cheetah, hyena, other members of the antelope family, and small mammals. Later drive back to Arusha. Breakfast and lunch included.
