4 day Tanzania wildlife Safari

4 day Tanzania wildlife Safari

On this 4-day-tanzania-wildlife-safari we purposely exclude the Serengeti as travelling to this park will take up too much time. Instead we include the beautiful Tarangire National Park, the Lake Manyara National Park and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 1
Tarangire National Park

After a safari briefing, you will travel southwest towards the Tarangire National Park. This park with its diverse vegetation including grass, baobabs, acacia woodlands and forest along the Tarangire River, is considered as one of the most attractive parks in northern Tanzania. Large numbers of elephants live here as well as eland, wildebeest and zebra. You will also see Thompson’s gazelle, Coke’s hartebeest, bohor reedbuck and kudu. With lots of tasty prey around you might also spot predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs. The late afternoon will be spent on a game drive before you head to the Maramboi Tented Camp or similar to spend the night. Lunch; Dinner

Day 2
Tarangire – Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, you will leave the region around Tarangire National Park and travel via the multi-cultural town of Mto wa Mbu to Lake Manyara National Park. You will see scores of monkeys and baboons in the forests, masses of pink flamingos and other water birds around the lake and observe lazy lions lounging in the acacia trees. In the afternoon, after exploring the park, you will drive to Karatu to your overnight accommodation that borders the forest of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will overnight at the Endoro Lodge or similar. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3
Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater

After an early breakfast at the lodge, the 4×4 safari vehicle will take you down the steep trail into the crater. This massive collapsed volcano is 18km in diameter with walls as high as 600 m. More than 25 000 large mammals live here including over 60 lions, elephants and thousands of wildebeests, zebras, eland and Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles. In the forests of the crater rim leopards can be found. Rare animals include the black rhino and wild dogs. In only a few hours, you have the chance of spotting the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinos and leopard. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will leave Ngorongoro in the afternoon and head back to Endoro Lodge or similar for the night. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
