Hotel pick-up from Moshi. Drive approx. 3-4 hours to Lake Manyara for an afternoon of sensational wildlife viewing (packed lunch included).
Leopards, lions, elephants, baboons, blue monkeys, dik-dik, gazelles, hippos, giraffes, impalas, bushbucks, buffalos, wildebeests, zebras, and more inhabit Lake Manyara National Park.
The park is also home to more than 400 bird species and is known for the flamingos that inhabit the lake. During the wet season they populate the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands, however the numbers dwindle during the dry season. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions. After the game drive, we dine and stay overnight at Bogamvillea Lodge.
Today we visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater
At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5’ – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard.
We enjoy a picnic lunch in this truly world-class attraction, also known as the ‘8th Wonder of the World’. After lunch, then dine and stay at Bogamvillea Lodge.
After breakfast, proceed to Tarangire National Park.
Tarangire is known for its vast herds of elephants. It is estimated that there are over 2,500 elephants in the park. We enjoy an outdoors lunch overlooking the bluff and viewing Tarangire’s plains where we continue our game drive through Tarangire on our way to Moshi.
With prior arrangement, we can drop you off at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) or at the accommodation in Moshi or Arusha.
