Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park
We will pick you up in Arusha in the morning and after a short safari briefing, you travel southwest towards the Tarangire National Park. The park has a diversity of landscapes including grass, acacia woodlands and forests and it is especially popular for its huge elephant herds and animals gathering at the river and swamps. Animals range from swarms of yellow breasted lovebirds to kudus, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras and impalas. Predators include lions, leopards and hyenas, while wild dogs are rare. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and travel to the Lake Burunge Tented Camp, where you will spend the night.
Day 2 Tarangire Area – Lake Manyara National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area
After breakfast, you will leave the area around Tarangire National Park and drive via the town of Mto wa Mbu to the Lake Manyara National Park. This park with its shallow alkaline lake stretches along the base of the Rift Valley Escarpment. Lake Manyara attracts thousands of birds, including huge flocks of flamingos. Other animals in the park include buffaloes, elephants, hippos and Masai giraffes as well as troops of boisterous baboons and monkeys in the forests. The park once became famous for tree climbing lions and if you are lucky to spot them you will be amused by the site of these animals lounging on branches in the acacia trees. After extensive game viewing, you will leave the park in the afternoon to continue your journey to Karatu, where you will spend the night at the Endoro Lodge.
