2 Days Safari Tour in Tanzania
This 2-day safari offers you the chance to see a wide variety of wildlife amongst some of the most diversified landscapes. Not only will you visit the Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Park but also the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You will see huge herds of elephants, in season flocks of flamingos and troops of baboon. Each park will give you a rare opportunity to experience its own unique ecosystem and the biodiversity.
We shall leave the lodge after breakfast for a drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Bird-watchers will find Lake Manyara an absolute delight, with a huge variety of birds on display in the park. Even the novice can expect to be amazed by large flamingo flocks, circling birds of prey, and the brightly colored lilac breasted roller. Waterbirds are abundant too. We shall visit the hippo pool to catch up with these huge mammals. Wee head to Karatu in the evening for an overnight.
After an early breakfast we will drive into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and down into the crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600 m deep, approximately 20 km wide and the massive caldera is home to an amazing variety of animals. On your game drive you have the possibility of seeing all different kinds of mammals ranging from the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks. You might also see spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After a picnic lunch in the crater and some game viewing, you will leave the crater in the afternoon and travel back to Arusha.
