3 Days/ 2 Nights - Taste of Tanzania Tour
The Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara

Day 1: Moshi/Arusha to Tarangire National Park

In the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in Moshi/Arusha and drive to Tarangire National Park, which is known for its huge baobab trees and large herds of elephants. Its sparse vegetation makes it a beautiful and special location, where up to 300 elephants can be found, looking for underground streams in the dry riverbeds. Migratory wildebeest, zebra and buffalo can also be seen crowding the shrinking lagoons. Here you will enjoy an afternoon game drive with a picnic lunch. Overnight stay on the outskirts of Ngorongoro Crater.

Best time to visit: During the dry season from July to October.

Day 2 – Tarangire to Ngorongoro Crater

Get up early and drive to Ngorongoro Crater, one of Africa's seven natural wonders! Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is considered one of the most beautiful and unique places in Africa. Here you will find a haven of African wildlife and you might also be lucky enough to witness the endangered Rhino! Enjoy a full day’s game drive at this park with lunch by the hippo pool. Overnight stay on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Manyara to Moshi/Arusha

Today you will rise early to head to Lake Manyara National Park for one final game drive. Located within the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara boasts a spectacular setting, famous for its tree-climbing lions and the soda-ash lake. The park also provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants.  Drive back to Moshi/Arusha in the afternoon.
