The Best Safari in Tanzania
Experience the Best Safari in Tanzania with a 3-days trip to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara. If you travel during a dry season, thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas. You can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds, and other species in Ngorongoro Crater and experience a full day game drive in Lake Manyara.
Day 1: Tarangire National Park Game Drive (L, D)
Tarangire National Park is the sixth-largest national park in Tanzania, it is located in Manyara Region. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem, during the annual dry season. The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras. During the dry season, thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.
The park is famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees. Visitors to the park in June to November dry season can expect to see large herds of thousands of zebra, wildebeest, and cape buffalo. Other common resident animals include waterbuck, giraffe, dik-dik, impala, eland, Grant’s gazelle, vervet monkey, banded mongoose, and olive baboon. Predators in Tarangire include African lion, leopard, cheetah, caracal, honey badger, and African wild dog.
Home to more than 550 bird species, the park is a haven for bird enthusiasts. The park is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape. Those that have been abandoned are often home to dwarf mongoose. (Dinner & Overnight – Hhando Coffee Lodge)

Day 3: Lake Manyara for Full day Game Drive (B, L)
Depart after breakfast, drive to Lake Manyara for game drive, later to Arusha for flight. Lake Manyara is the seventh-largest lake of Tanzania by surface area, at 470-square-kilometer (180 sq mi). It is a shallow, alkaline lake in the Natron-Manyara-Balangida branch of the East African Rift in the Manyara Region in Tanzania. The northwest quadrant of the lake (about 200 sq, km.) is included within Lake Manyara National Park and it is part of the Lake Manyara Biosphere Reserve, established in 1981 by UNESCO as part of its Man and the Biosphere Programme. There are differing explanations for how Lake Manyara got its name. The name Manyara may come from the Maasai word Manyara, which is the spiky, protective enclosure around a family homestead (boma). Possibly the 600 m high rift escarpment hems in the lake, like the enclosure around a Maasai boma]. Another theory is that the Mbugwe tribe, who live in the Lake Manyara area, may have given the lake its name based on the Mbugwe word manyero, meaning a trough or place where animals drink water
