DAY 1 – Lake Manyara National Park

We pick you up at the hotel or airport in the morning and then drive to Lake Manyara National Park. It takes about 2 hours to the park from Arusha. The roads are in some places less good but are maintained continuously, and it is a relatively pleasant trip to the park.

Many villages passed under the trip.You will travel in a four-drive wheel, safari customized, Toyota Land Cruiser with pop-up roof.

Our guides are local guides from Tanzania and speaks good English and are accustomed to taking care about travalers from many countries.

Elephant densities in Lake Manyara is normally high. The park is also known for its tree-climbing lions (climbing trees just like leopards). The first thing you usually see in Lake Manyara are baboons that there are plenty of right after the park entrance. In akacieskogen, the park’s southern parts, it is possible to see, for example, buffaloes, giraffes, lions and zebras, and along the lake shore to the east pelicans, cormorants and storks. The lake is a soda lake, which, among other things, possible to see flamingos. 

The park has not a savanna like many other parks in Tanzania, but the park is largely covered with trees. Almost 400 bird species have been observed in the park. Other birds than those already mentioned above, for example marabou drying, vitryggad yarn hooded vulture, African pygmy Kingfisher, African paradise flycatcher, heron, silk heron, African spoon drying, long-crested eagle, Leach drongo and more.

Dinner and overnight at Mto wa Mbu Lodge & Campsite, located just a few minutes from Lake Manyara.

DAY 2 – Ngorongoro crater

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a special conservation area and is not a national (example of Serengeti). It means that people will live there and keep livestock, but not farming. This makes it possible to the Masai live in the area, while the nature protected.

Crater bottom is essentially flat and open, with a few hills. There is a single forest, a large lake, a couple of major marsh areas, no running water and a number of small scattered ponds. Crater’s main attraction among animals are probably the rhinos. The crater is the best place in northern Tanzania to see rhinos.

Down in the crater also live a handful of desktop lion flocks. The number of cheetahs are fairly small, but although it needed a little luck to see them seen cheetahs quite often. Animal life in general is relatively wide, with wildebeests, zebras, buffaloes, elephants, gazelles, hyenas and jackals, and a lot of birds.

After the day’s game viewing you will return to Arusha or Moshi. Will you continue to Zanzibar on the same day is not possible with this approach, but then we recommend that you instead start with Ngoronogoro Crater and the next day have half a day in Lake Manyara before you leave for the airport.
