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 the rain when they migrate again to good grazing areas. Later go to Tarangire Public Campsite for your dinner and overnight. 3 meals included.
Day 3 Lake Manyara
After breakfast you will head to Lake Manyara. Have a game drive in the park. When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley escarpment looms on the horizon forming an impressive backdrop to the lake.

Other animals frequently seen are zebras, impalas, monkeys, giraffes, buffalos, hippos, and others. Later you will drive back to Karatu for your overnight at Panorama Inn. 3 meals included.

Day 6 Serengeti
After breakfast head out for another game drive in the amazing Serengeti. You cannot see too much of the park. That's just the way it is! About 70 larger mammal and 500 bird species are found there.
