Overview

3 Day Camping Safari

The African wild safari tour package which will take you to the attractive places of Lake Manyara National park, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park.

Itinerary

 Day 1: Lake Manyara National Park 

Our professional tour guides will meet you at the hotel and brief you about the tour. You will travel up to Lake Manyara where you will be able to see tree climbing lions which are the park’s main attraction. Why these lions habitually climb trees is still up for debate but viewing a pride relaxing in an acacia tree is an incredible site. The park is also know for its large Baboon troops & varied landscape. Other animals which can be sighted include but are not limited to elephants, wildebeest, buffalo, hippo, zebra, warthogs and a selection of antelope. This small park is also home to a large selection of bird life which include flamingos, pelicans, storks and cormorants.

You will be able to view your surrounding from the safely of your vehicle. Our vehicles are structured in such a way that the roof can open to allow for unobstructed photography. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park in the afternoon. Tonight you will spend the night under the stars as you camp at a campsite in the small town of Mto wa Mbu.

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater

After getting a delicious breakfast you will depart for Ngorongoro Crater which is one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites. Any trip to Northern Tanzania has to include the Ngorongoro Crater: it is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Masaai tribe.

The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions.  Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa.  The most famous such crater is without question the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including all the big five and plenty of predators. The Ngorongoro is the best place in Tanzania to see the big five.  A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are the prize spots, but the Crater is also home to strong populations of lion, leopard and hyena along with good herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra.  Other game in the Ngorongoro includes serval cat, cheetah, jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, flamingo and bat eared foxes.

You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater and continue the game drive after the break. Later in the afternoon, you will travel up to the steep walls of the crater to return to Moshi.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park 

You will travel up to Tarangire which is the surprise package on the Northern circuit.  Often overshadowed by the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire has an immense concentration of game in the peak months and a fraction of the visitors that go to any of the other Northern parks.  The game viewing here from July through to October is super and the atmosphere and habitat is completely different from the other parks. The real prizes in the park are dwarf mongoose, Oryx and generuk but viewings are very rare. Tarangire is one of Tanzania’s finest birding destinations.

The main activity in Tarangire is daytime game driving, however, staying outside the park makes walking and night safari a possibility.  There are no boat safaris on the Tarangire River. After an extensive game drive, enjoyed from your open roof vehicle, you will leave the park and travel back to Moshi. This will conclude the trip.
