Arusha National Park

This 3 -day Tanzania road Safari combines three northern Tanzania wildlife areas namely Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, and Lake Manyara National Park.

The safari begins with the closest national park to Arusha town – northern Tanzania’s safari capital – Arusha National Park, home to Mt Meru standing at 4565 meters, Ngurdoto Crater, and the Momella Lakes.

Arusha National Park is an easy 40-minute drive from Arusha town. It is approximately 60 km (35 miles) from Kilimanjaro International Airport. Upon arrival in the park, we enjoy a peaceful and scenic canoeing safari following the shorelines of small Momella Lake.

On this 2- 2.5 hours canoe safari, you can view Buffaloes, Bushbuck, Giraffes, Hippos, and many water birds living in and close to the water. Later proceed on a half-day game drive in the park which is famous for white and black Colobus monkeys, Burchell’s Zebra, Giraffe and herds of Buffalo, Bohor reedbuck, Python, Elephants Bushbuck, Hippos and many water birds living in and close to the water.

Late evening drives back to your hotel/ camp for dinner and overnight. Accommodation options include Hatari Lodge, Lake Duluti Hotel, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Arusha Safari Lodge, and Moivaro Coffee Plantation Lodge.

Day two begins with traveling to Tarangire National Park, known for its big herds of Elephants. We explore the game park in a customized 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof for maximum visibility. We stop in the bush for a picnic lunch on our game drive.

Tarangire hosts an array of wild animals, including Lions and Buffalos, as well as various Antelopes, Wildebeest, Giraffes, and Zebras. The national park covers some 2600km² of wilderness, characterized by undulating plains dotted with baobab and acacia trees.

After our wildlife adventure in Tarangire Park, we head to our overnight stay at a camp/ lodge in Tarangire National Park. Accommodation options include Oliver’s Camp, Sanctuary Swala, Chem Chem Safari Lodge, Tarangire Safari Lodge, Tarangire River Camp, and Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge.

On day 3, we make our way to Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive. This scenic national park protects the north-western part of Lake Manyara, running along the base of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment.

On entering the park, the road takes us through a lush jungle-like forest, home to baboons and monkeys, before opening on to a grassy floodplain. Large buffaloes, wildebeest, giraffes, and herds of zebra congregate on the grassy plains.

Further inland the legendary tree-climbing Lions and Elephants can be found in a narrow belt of woodland. As well as the many animals, Manyara is home to prolific birdlife and is famous for the huge flocks of Flamingos along the lake-shore.

We enjoy a box lunch at a picnic site within the park and later exit and return to Arusha where our memorable 3 Days Arusha National Park Tarangire Lake Manyara Safari ends.
