Karibuni sana! Welcome to Tanzania! In the morning you fly from Zanzibar (approx. 8 a.m., flight time approx. 60 minutes) to the mainland of Tanzania to Arusha Airport and can already enjoy fascinating views of the spectacular landscapes of Tanzania during the flight. Perhaps you will also discover Mount Kilimanjaro with its snow-capped Uhuru peak.
We will be waiting for you at the airport exit when you arrive. After a short briefing with your safari guide, your 3-day safari through the national parks of northern Tanzania begins.
Your first destination is Tarangire National Park (approx. 2 hours’ drive), which is known for its herds of elephants and giant baobabs. Once you arrive at the entrance gate of the national park, you will go on an extensive game drive in the Tarangire.
The Tarangire River, which carries water all year round, attracts countless animals and offers wonderful game viewing opportunities. The park has one of the highest elephant densities in Tanzania and herds of more than 30 animals are not uncommon.
Over 100 mammal species live in Tarangire, including giraffe, impala, lion, Cape buffalo, zebra, hartebeest, eland, dik dik and kudu, as well as over 500 bird species, including the largest bird in the world, the Maasai ostrich. Mighty baobabs and magnificent umbrella acacias form a unique backdrop for an exciting day on safari. Look forward to a real bush feeling! We will have lunch, consisting of a picnic packed lunch, in the middle of nature.
In the afternoon we leave the park and drive to Karatu. Upon arrival at the lodge, you will have time to freshen up before ending the day with dinner under the stars and a good night’s sleep at the lodge in Karatu.
Meals: 1x picnic packed lunch, 1x dinner
Take a safari jeep to explore the famous Ngorongoro Crater. (The drive from Karatu takes approx. 40 minutes) First enjoy the fantastic view from the crater rim over the huge caldera from a viewpoint before descending to the crater floor via a steep slope.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a unique animal paradise and is one of the seven natural wonders of Africa.
On a safari here, you can observe almost all of Africa’s most important animals in just a few hours. In addition to lions, wildebeests, zebras, buffaloes, elephants and gazelles, there is also a good chance of seeing the rare black rhino. The crater itself is home to over 20,000 large animals, which can leave or enter the crater freely. However, most of them stay here permanently as there is no shortage of water or food. A true natural wonder that can only be found in Africa.
After the game drive in Ngorongoro you leave the crater and drive back to Karatu to your lodge where a delicious dinner and a well-deserved night’s sleep awaits you.
Meals: 1x breakfast, 1x picnic packed lunch, 1x dinner
An extensive game drive allows you to immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of Lake Manyara. Nestled in one of the most spectacular landscapes in northern Tanzania, this park lies at the foot of the East African Rift Valley. With its lush groundwater forests, open grasslands and pristine lake shores, the park is a scenic gem. Two thirds of the park is taken up by the alkaline lake, which is populated by tens of thousands of flamingos during the rainy season. A remarkable abundance of animals can be found here in a very small area. Large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra gather on these green plains.
The wide-spreading branches of the acacia trees are the preferred habitat of the legendary tree lions. Elephants, giraffes, hippos and numerous species of antelope can also be spotted. Lake Manyara is also a bird paradise – over 400 species are represented here.
In the afternoon, drive back to Arusha to the airport, where your eventful safari ends. You take the afternoon flight (approx. 16.30 hrs) back to Zanzibar.
Our driver will meet you at Zanzibar airport and take you back to your hotel.
