Day 1: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Day 2: NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA
After a delicious breakfast, you will drive to Tarangire National Park. This park is well known for its big groups of elephants and the huge amount of giant baobab trees that can live for hundreds of years. In the dry season, it’s possible to see groups of up to 250 elephants here! They can weigh up to six thousand kilos and have a special technique to draw water from the baobab trees. Your private guide can tell you everything about this.
But Tarangire has many more wild animals, which you can spot most easily at the Tarangire River or Lake Barunge – the main water sources of the park – when they come to relieve their thirst.
Dinner and Overnight at Neptune Lodge
Today you will visit one of the seven African wonders – the Ngorongoro Crater, created when a huge volcano erupted two million years ago. The fertile lava has created a unique ecosystem; the crater has the highest concentration of animals anywhere in Africa! While descending from the rim onto the crater floor you will be surrounded by the most beautiful animals. When below, the views are astounding – you won’t know where to look!
The Ngorongoro Crater is home to many lion families, buffalos, zebras, wildebeests, and many more species. And nowhere else offers a chance as good as this to spot the rare black rhino. So if you want to see the big five – this is the place to be! Then late in the evening, you will drive to the Airport/Hotel
The best time to go on safari in Tanzania is generally during the dry season months of June to October but a wide range of wildlife can be spotted year-round and each season brings its own advantages.
