Let our 2 days Tanzania camping safari Begin
Please let us know if you will need transfer & accommodation in Arusha before & after the safari to be included in your package. Our safari manager will meet you at your lodge/hotel in Arusha a day before or in the morning for a short safari briefing.
DAY 1: ARUSHA – TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Distance: 120 km
Non – game-viewing drive: 2 – 3 hrs.
After breakfast, we pick you up from your lodge in Arusha and drive to Tarangire National Park. The drive is along with Arusha town so any last-minute purchase can be done on the way.
Tarangire National Park is known for its large elephant population & giant baobab trees. 6000 elephants, 2,500 wildebeest & 3,000 zebra were recorded in this park.
This huge population of ungulates moves around the Tarangire Lake Manyara ecosystem. Tarangire River & Lake Burunge dam is the permanent source of water in the entire park serving a larger number of wildlife, especially during the dry season.
You may expect to spot lion, leopard hyena, jackals, cheetahs, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, Zebras & the three rare species of Great kudu, Oryx & the Ash stalling. Birdlife is abundant in this park over 400 bird species were recorded here which includes ostrich, herons, Cori bastard, secretary birds & lots of aquatic birds. Parked lunch will be served inside the park.
Later drive to your Campsite close to Lake Manyara for overnight. All meals included.
DAY 2: TARANGIRE – NGORONGORO CRATER – ARUSHA
Distance: 220 km
Non – game-viewing time: 2 – 2:30 hrs.
After an early breakfast then depart from the campsite to Ngorongoro crater, descend over 600 meters into the crater floor for a game drive. Ngorongoro crater is referred to by many as the 8th wonders of the world.
Supported by yearly around water supply from the highlands and fodders, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a larger number of wildlife which includes herds of wildebeest, buffalo, eland, zebra, warthog, hippo, African elephant, and the rare black rhino.
Another interesting part of this wildlife conservation is the dense population of predators like lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals & the ever-mysterious leopard that needs a well-trained eye to spot.
During the game drive, you will visit Lake Magadi the alkaline lake located on the southwest corner that attracts a good number of flamingos, some hippos, and other aquatic birds. Late afternoon drive back to Arusha for dinner and Overnight or airport drop-off.
