6 Days Tanzania Safari

Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation, Serengeti, Tarangire

Day 1:

After breakfast, we pick you up at your hotel and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. It is a lovely park with the shallow soda lake being a haven for flamingoes. It is a favorite park for bird-watchers with over 300 migratory bird species.The park also is known for its tree climbing lions. There are also numerous baboon, giraffe, impala, hippo and elephant. Along the way, you will get a chance to pass through some small towns and rural areas get a glimpse of ordinary life in Tanzania. Upon arrival at Lake Manyara National Park, we will proceed on a game drive. The game viewing will continue until midafternoon, when we will travel into Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) where we will have dinner and overnight at campsite/lodge/tented camp. Note: Overnights are not permitted inside of the crater. All accommodations are outside the crater, most are near the crater rim. This is a cold location since there is some altitude (7,500 ft. or 2286m). Even a knit cap and light gloves may feel welcome since it also tends to be windy.
