Day 2 The Baobab Garden (Tarangire National Park):
After a splendid breakfast we start our safari driving West across the Great Rift Valley to Tarangire National Park. This park is famous for its large elephant populations, currently numbering more than 3,000 individual elephants, who live amongst the impressive Baobab trees. The park is also a great place for a variety of other big game including lion and cheetah, along with sightings of leopard, to add to the more common savanna wildlife such as Zebra, Impala, Baboon, and Gazelle. Additionally the park is home to a great variety of bird life. After spending the day enjoying the wildlife with a picnic lunch we head to the lodge which is known for having “the best view in Africa”, where we enjoy the sunset as we look out over the Tarangire river.

Day 3: Lake Manyara to the Ngorongoro:
We enjoy a last game drive at sunrise enjoying the elephants as they great one another early in the morning. We then make our way to Lake Manyara National Park. This smaller park has an excellent variety of wildlife split between the three different ecosystems. As we enter the park we find ourselves in the groundwater forests, driving through the shadows of this impressive forest, which is home to Sykes Blue Monkey, Baboons, and forest dwelling birds. We then make our way to the inlet of the lake where we find fresh water flowing down the escarpment. The fresh water grasslands attract a variety of shore birds along with the resident hippos. The drive then takes us further along the shores of Lake Manyara where the saline waters attract flamingos and pelicans, and a great variety of animals to the shores to find salt. In the late afternoon we leave the park driving up the escarpment and into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where the lodge is located not far from the crater rim.

Day 4: The Ngorongoro Carter:
Before sunrise we collect a packed lunch and head out to the descend down into the Ngorongoro Crater, the worlds largest intact Caldera. The drive down to the crater floor is impressive as the Seneto road takes us nearly 900 feet down from the rim to the crater floor. This UNESCO World Heritage site hosts the densest population of wildlife in all of Tanzania and is one of the only places in which all of the big 5 can be found in one place. We work our way around the crater floor and stop at the Ngoitokitok Springs picnic spot for lunch and to enjoy the hippos. After lunch we will enjoy a last short game drive before making our way back to the crater rim and then continuing to Arusha either to connect to your flight home or to your hotel for the night.
