We will pick you in the morning from your hotel and take you to the Manyara Lake National Park. This park offers areas of dense woodland in which live the long tailed blue monkeys as well as baboons, antelopes and gazelles and also approximately 500 elephants. The Manyara National Park is also known for its lions which like to lounge around in trees – this behavior is not common among large cats and makes for quite a sight. The wildlife tour is followed at midday by a picnic in the Park after which the tour continues with more chances to observe these fantastic animals. Later on in the day you will leave the national park and proceed to the cooler crater uplands, where you will overnight at Ngorongoro Farm House
MANYARA / NGORONGORO CRATER/ ARUSHA
After breakfast our safari continues with a trip to the Ngorongoro Crater the world’s famed site . This is the world's largest unflooded caldera a feature formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption. It is approximately 18Km in diameter and the home to an estimated 25000 mammals. The caldera is truly amazing but it is only when you have reached the crater floor and had a chance to look all around you, do realize just how breathtaking it is.2 Days safari Ngorongoro Here in a relatively small area (in African terms) you find practically the complete cross section of East African wildlife. Alongside elephants, zebras, wildebeest and buffalo you will find an array of antelopes, gazelles, hippopotami, warthogs, and hyena. There is also a very good chance that you will also see leopards, lions and the black rhino. The black rhino is unfortunately threatened with extinction.
