Arusha National Park

Explore three of Tanzania’s top game parks on the well-loved Northern Safari Circuit in just a few days! Start with Arusha National Park home to the planet’s largest population of African giraffes then on to Lake Manyara National Park where lions climb trees and baboon troops thrive and end with Ngorongoro Crater home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.

This 3 day Tanzania road Safari begins with a road trip to Arusha National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in Tanzania, located 32 km from Arusha town. Upon arrival at Momella Gate, an armed ranger will be waiting for you to accompany you on the walking safari that will give you the chance to experience the wildlife up-close.

During the hike, you may have the chance to see different species of animals, such as Colobus Monkeys, Elephants, Giraffes, Buffaloes, Zebras, Warthogs, and many species of tropical birds. Depending on your wishes and your walking speed, this walk takes about an hour and a half. You will have lunch in the park after your hike is over.

In the afternoon we proceed on a game drive to look for Hippos, Bushbucks, Reedbucks, Hyenas, and Leopards. Also, more than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park, such as Pelicans, Flamingos, Hornbills, Fish and Snake Eagles, and Buzzards.

We spend the night at one of the lodges/camps near Arusha National Park or Arusha town. Accommodation options include Hatari Lodge, Lake Duluti Serena Hotel, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Mount Meru Game Lodge, or Arusha Safari Lodge.

On Day two of this tour, we drive to the next game viewing destination in Tanzania – Lake Manyara National Park, one of the region’s wildlife gems.  Lake Manyara is a good place to see water birds, including large flocks of flamingo’s when they migrate to its shores.

Game viewing highlights include tree-climbing lions that can be seen lounging in the trees like leopards. Baboons are commonly sighted, as Manyara is home to some of the largest baboon troops in Africa, as well as hosting numerous Giraffes, Warthogs, Buffalos, Elephants, and Wildebeest. Zebras and various antelope species are also frequently sighted, along with Hippos, Crocodiles, and Monkeys.

After exploring Lake Manyara National park we proceed to our camp/ lodge for dinner and overnight. Accommodation options include Manyara Wildlife Safari Camp, Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge, Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge, or Africa Safari Glamping.

Day 3 begins with a drive to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. Reaching the largest intact caldera (volcanic crater) in the world we glimpse the game-rich plains below, descending the steep, 600m high crater walls. We spend the whole day inside this massive unflooded crater, taking packed lunches with us from the lodge.

The Ngorongoro Crater is home to one of the highest concentrations of African wildlife. Almost every animal species found in East Africa is found in this diverse 8300km² conservation area, with one of the notable exceptions being giraffes.

We take packed lunches with us into this beautiful crater, considered by some as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s top safari destinations and the high-density game-viewing gem of Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit.

After spotting an abundance of large mammals we make our way back up the crater walls, admiring the stunning views, and drive back to Arusha where our trip comes to a close.
