Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha National Park with walking safari

Pick up at your hotel in Arusha then we set off to Arusha National Park for a walking safari of about two to three hours with a ranger (or less depending on the weather) and then continue for a game drive in the park. At a nice spot, we will stop for a pick nick lunch. At the end of the afternoon, overnight in the lodge of your choice.

Arusha National Park, often overlooked, is in fact a treasure, a rich tapestry of habitats, teeming with animals and birds. From the lush swamps of the Ngurdoto Crater to the tranquil beauty of the Momela Lakes and the rock alpine heights of Mt Meru, the terrain of the park is as varied as it is interesting.

Day 2: Manyara National Park

After breakfast we set off to Manyara National Park for a game drive in the park. At a nice spot we will stop for a pick nick lunch. At the end of the afternoon we will go to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Tucked between the majesty of the Rift Valley wall, Lake Manyara National Park is a thin green band of forest. There is surprisingly varied vegetation which supports a wealthy wildlife. Deep in the south of the park, hot springs bubble to the surface as hippo wallow near the lake.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, game drive into Ngorongoro Conservation Area for the game drive in the crater. Dinner and overnight stay at lodge.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area boasts the finest blend of landscape and wildlife often called ‘African Eden’ and the ‘eighth wonder of the natural world.

Day 4: Tarangire National park

After breakfast we go to Tarangire National park for a game drive in the park. At the end of the afternoon transfer to your hotel in Arusha.

Tarangire National Park is a very scenic park with expansive views of baobab-studded grasslands. Tarangire River, a permanent river attracts many animals especially during the dry season (June-November) bringing this park to life with the large herds of elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, zebra, and Grants’s gazelle. Tarangire is also a good place to spot lions and the shy leopards. The park owes its name to Tarangire River, which flows through the area. It is characterized by dense vegetation of acacia and mixed woodland, the area around Tarangire River however, is dominated by huge baobab trees and old doum palm trees to a lesser prominence, as well as black cotton grass. Though it is not as famous as other parks in the north, Tarangire offers the same attractions as other parks in the north.
