Tanzania Safari - 3 Days Lake Manyara and
Ngorongoro crater Tour
After lunch you will be collected by our Driver/Guide at
your Hotel in Arusha. Leave Arusha and proceed to Lake Manyara
National Park. From the entrance gate, you will drive through an
expanse of groundwater forest where hundreds of strong baboon
troops lounge casually along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper
nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread
warily through the shadows and outsized forest hornbills hank
cacophonously in the high canopy. After the evening game-view,
you leave the park and drive to the Lodge or Campsite at Lake
Manyara for dinner and overnight stay.
After breakfast drive over
the Great Rift Valley escarpment and descend into Manyara
National Park for morning game viewing. Drive through a narrow
belt of acacia woodland to the favored haunt of the Lake
Manyara’s legendry tree-climbing lions and heavy tusked
elephants. Continue further to visit the hot springs that
streams and bubbles adjacent to the lakeshore in the far south
of the park. In the afternoon, return to your lodge for lunch.
Shortly after lunch depart from the Lodge and proceed to
Ngorongoro then drive to your lodges which are superbly perched
on the edge of the ancient Crater rim above the cool, swirling
mists. Dinner and overnight stay at the Lodge or Campsite.
Ngorongoro shelters one
of the most beautiful wildlife heavens on earth. Therefore,
during the morning we collect your packed lunches and descend
610m/2000ft down to the Crater. Here you will see some of
Africa’s last black rhino protected within its rim, black–maned
lions, flamingos around the soda lakes and giant-tusked
elephants wonder the forest. In the afternoon we stop at the
site for picnic lunch then continue with your tour. Leave the
Crater at about 16:00hrs and drive back to Arusha.
