2 DAYS NGORONGORO & LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is in northern Tanzania. It’s home to the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater and “big 5” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino). Huge herds of wildebeests and zebras traverse its plains during their annual migration. Livestock belonging to the semi-nomadic Maasai tribe graze alongside wild animals. Hominin fossils found in the Olduvai Gorge date back millions of years

The northern circuit is the most popular safari circuit of Tanzania. In most cases, you will fly to Kilimanjaro Int. Airport or Arusha airport and travel onwards to Arusha, the town from where the northern circuit is explored. Upon an early arrival, you could start with a visit to Arusha National Park the same day. If the safari includes a flight back to Arusha from the Serengeti, Tarangire and/or Lake Manyara will most likely be the first you’ll visit (depending on the season, since Tarangire is only seasonally good). Next is Ngorongoro crater, one of the largest intact volcanic calderas in the world and full of wildlife. Last but not least, Serengeti National Park, one of the best parks of Africa. If you drive back instead of flying, you will most likely skip either the Ngorongoro crater or Tarangire/Lake Manyara on the way to the Serengeti, and visit them on the way back.Popular add-ons:

Day 1. Leave Moshi/Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park. We will pick you in the morning from your hotel and take you to the Manyara Lake National Park. This park offers areas of dense woodland in which live the long tailed blue monkeys as well as baboons, antelopes and gazelles and also approximately 500 elephants. The Manyara National Park is also known for its lions which like to lounge around in trees – this behavior is not common among large cats and makes for quite a sight. The wildlife tour is followed at midday by a picnic in the Park after which the tour continues with more chances to observe these fantastic animals. Later on in the day you will leave the national park and proceed to the cooler crater uplands, where you will overnight at . Ngorongoro Farm House Lunch; Dinner

Day 2 Lake Manyara National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Arusha: After breakfast our safari continues with a trip to the Ngorongoro Crater the world’s famed site . This is the world’s largest unflooded caldera – a feature formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption. It is approximately 18Km in diameter and the home to an estimated 25000 mammals. The caldera is truly amazing but it is only when you have reached the crater floor and had a chance to look all around you, do realize just how breathtaking it is.2 Days safari Ngorongoro Here in a relatively small area (in African terms) you find practically the complete cross section of East African wildlife. Alongside elephants, zebras, wildebeest and buffalo you will find an array of antelopes, gazelles, hippopotami, warthogs, and hyena. There is also a very good chance that you will also see leopards, lions and the black rhino. The black rhino is unfortunately threatened with extinction. After lunch there will be more time for wildlife spotting before it’s time to leave the Ngorongoro Crater and return to Arusha. Lunch; Dinner
