Day 1: Drive from Arusha to Tarangire National Park for game drive

Following breakfast, you will depart for a three-hour trip to Tarangire National Park. Upon arrival, check into your hotel or lodge for lunch and leisure. Tarangire National Park in Northern Tanzania is a beautiful, serene park known for its elephant migration, birds, and true safari experience.

Go on a game drive in the afternoon to look for unusual wildlife. The Baobabs, Africa’s tallest trees and a home for many different species, are scattered across the grassy plains of Tarangire. Elephants thrive in this region, with herds of up to 300 animals. Discover nearly 500 bird species, including the world’s largest bird, the Yellow-collared lovebird, and the world’s heaviest flying bird, the Kori Bustard. Look out for herds of zebras, giraffes, elands, gazelles, buffalos, impalas, wildebeests, hartebeests, and waterbucks. Return to the lodge for dinner and a restful night’s sleep.

All meals are included in the meal plan.

Day 2: Morning game drive and Transfer to Ngorongoro Crater area

After breakfast, embark on a wildlife viewing drive around the park in search of the “Giants of Tarangire” — African elephants and baobab trees. Drive through the Silale Swamp, which is an essential part of the Tarangire ecosystem. Thousands of species migrate to the swamp during the wet season because it acts as a gigantic sponge and then gradually releases water during the dry season. The park is dominated by large herds of thirsty herbivores, tempting lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, and the critically endangered African wild dogs/painted wolves.

Depart for Ngorongoro Crater in the afternoon. The caldera of Ngorongoro Crater is home to the most spectacular wildlife habitat on the planet. The crater floor’s abundant pasture and permanent water support a resident population of 20,000 to 25,000 big mammals. The crater is home to a river, numerous marshes, and a soda lake full with flamingos, a forest, and expansive grasslands. It is also famous for its elephants, which are the largest in the world and have gigantic tusks. Upon Arrival you will check in the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Meal plan: All meals are included

Day 3: Descend to the crater floor for game drive and transfer back to Arusha

After an early breakfast, you will return to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to descend into the crater. Around 2.5 million years ago, a gigantic volcano exploded and collapsed on itself, forming the Ngorongoro Crater. It is the world’s biggest unbroken volcanic caldera, and it has been designated as a World Heritage Site and a sealed habitat. This crater is home to a variety of species, including the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard) as well as spotted hyenas and uncommon wild dogs. Among the 500 bird species found in the area are Common Ostriches, Crowned Cranes, Southern Ground Hornbills, and Flamingos.

After the game drive, have a picnic lunch before ascending the crater and exiting the Ngorongoro Conservation Area for the journey back to Arusha. Arrive in Arusha in the evening and be dropped off at the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay to conclude 3 DAYS TARANGIRE AND NGORONGORO CRATER WILDLIFE SAFARI.

Brief Information about Tarangire national park and Ngorongoro conservation area

Tarangire national park

Tarangire National Park is a nice and easy-to-visit park. Because of the park’s more compact and open topography, wildlife is abundant and exposed, making it easier to observe animals up close and from a distance. The park is located near Lake Manyara and is only a two-hour drive from Arusha. It is Tanzania’s sixth largest park, covering around 2850 square kilometers, and is home to the highest concentration of species outside of the Serengeti. Tarangire is well-known for its large elephant herds, which may be observed up close. Wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, gazelle, rhino, warthog, impala, python, lion, leopard, and over 50 bird species are also likely to be sighted at Tarangire

Ngorongoro conservation area

Ngorongoro Crater is located in northern Tanzania, on the Eastern Great Rift Valley arm. The park, governed by the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, is situated in the villages of Oloirobi district, which has continued to flourish as a result of the national park’s presence.

The area was designated as a multiple-use area in 1959, with wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists engaged in traditional cattle grazing. It features the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest crater, and Olduvai Gorge, a 14-kilometer-long steep canyon. As a protection area, Ngorongoro Crater is home to wildlife species such as the Big 5 animals of Africa, which include buffalo, lions, elephants, leopards, and rhinos. Bird species, the spectacular caldera of Ngorongoro Crater, Gold Mountains, Olduvai Museum, and footprints at Laetoli are among the other attractions in Ngorongoro.

Because of its diverse land use strategy, the Ngorongoro Conservation region is a one-of-a-kind protected region in Africa. UNESCO declared the area as a World Heritage Site in 1979 and an International Biosphere Reserve in 1981 for its natural and cultural values. In 2010, UNESCO added the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to its list of composite world heritage sites.
