Day 1
Arusha City – Tarangire National Park
At 8:00 am, our driver/guide will pick you up at your hotel together with your lunch and drive you to Tarangire for game viewing. The park is well known for a large number of elephants that congregate here, as do many wildebeest and zebras. There are also significant populations of impala, giraffes, eland, and buffalo. While elephants dot the plain like cattle, lions are common throughout Tarangire, as are leopards. Cleaving the park into two is the Tarangire River where steep banks provide a lure for animals, thus, many eye-catching sights for visitors. Later during the day, you will proceed to your reserved accommodation.

Oliver’s Camp (Luxury)
Day 2
Tarangire – Lake Manyara National Park - Ngorongoro
After breakfast, our driver/guide will pick you up and drive you to Lake Manyara for game viewing. Widely known for its tree-climbing lions, soda ash lake, and its flamingos, the park offers varied ecosystems, breathtaking views and incredible ecological variety in a small area, rich in wildlife and amazing numbers of birds. Lake Manyara’s game includes buffalo and wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, warthog, impala. Later during the day, you will proceed to your reserved accommodation in Ngorongoro.

At 8:00 am, our driver/guide will pick you up and drive to Ngorongoro Crater for game viewing. Your driver/guide will help you spot some of the many species on the crater floor, teaching you about their fascinating habits and habitats. Also, this is perhaps the best place to see the Black Rhino. If you are itching to see the Big 5, in Ngorongoro you are likely to spot all five in one place. Later during the day, you will be transferred back to Arusha. We expect to be back in Arusha around 5 pm although we are flexible in case there is a flight to catch or another situation.
