Trip highlights


  • View wildlife in the Ngorongoro Crater
  • Discover Tarangire National Park
  • Explore Lake Manyara National Park

After a climb on Kilimanjaro or Meru, there are few better ways to glimpse the highlights of northern Tanzanian wildlife than to join this superb safari. The world famous Ngorongoro Crater is considered the "Garden of Eden" of Tanzania in terms of game viewing and we spend a day doing just that . Other highlights while on safari include huge herds of elephants in Tarangire National Park and abundant birdlife at Lake Manyara.


Early this morning, your guide will pick you up from your hotel to depart for Tarangire National Park. Lunch will be provided on arrival followed by an afternoon of wildlife viewing. Tarangire covers an area of about 2850 sq km (1,096 sq miles) and supports a huge conentration of wildlife as a result of the permanent water source provided by the Tarangire River flowing through it. With environments ranging from swamps and flood plains to dry savannah exciting opportunities to see wildlife abound. Herds of up to 300 elephants, over 550 species of birds, antelopes and plains animals and of course many predators such as lions, leopards and cheetah can be seen. Accommodation this evening is at Migunga permanent campsite which is located near the village of Mto Wa Mbu and within 5 mins of Lake Manyara National Park.

Meals:  L,D

We drive up the Rift Valley escarpment this morning to the Ngorongoro Highlands. Our journey will take approximately two hours with wonderful views over the floor of the Rift Valley and passing through lush rainforest. On arrival at the crater rim (2300m) we descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for nearly a whole day of game viewing. We enter via the Windy Gap road, which is narrow, steep and twisting as it descends into this natural amphitheatre. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the last refuges in northern Tanzania for the endangered Black Rhino. With an extremely high density of animals in the 100sq km caldera, the Crater can be regarded as a “Garden of Eden”. Along with rhino, it is home to the largest density of lions anywhere in Africa with a plethora of antelope, hippos, other big cats, elephants, birds and much more. We return to Migunga permanent camp in the late afternoon. (Please bring some warm clothing as it can be chilly on the crater rim.)

Meals:  B,L,D

After breakfast we pack up and leave our camp to spend time game viewing in Lake Manyara National Park. The lake itself covers about two thirds of the park area, shrinking in the dry season to expose large areas of mud flats. The flood plains around the lake extend to drier acacia forest and these different habitats provide a haven for a multitude of wildlife including baboons, herbivores, big cats and migratory birds. We will have a picnic lunch and then leave Lake Manyara to return to Arusha (a drive of around 2 ½ hours), where we check into Ilboru Safari Lodge in the late afternoon.

Meals:  B,L

After breakfast, our trip arrangements conclude. Additional nights in Arusha or transfers to the airport for onward travel can be arranged if required for additional cost.
