Essence of Tanzania
Essence of Tanzania Overview
This is the most popular package we offer. With this, we take you to the Tarangire National Park and The Ngorongoro Crater where you will see the BIG FIVE, reptiles and a variety of birdlife. Tarangire National Park derived its name from the Tarangire River which acts as the primary source of water for the wildlife.
Game drives in the dry season are spectacular in this area, especially along the river banks where a large portion of the animals congregate.
The Ngorongoro Crater, as one of the most well known safari destinations in the world needs no introduction. You are sure to see what you came for!
Arrive in Arusha
Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will meet with our representative or the driver guide who will transport you west to the town center of Arusha where you will have dinner and stay the night before your safari.
Tarangire National Park is inhabited by large herds of elephants, zebras, buffaloes, and feline predators. A noteworthy highlight of this expedition are the unique Baobab trees which we will see from time to time. The Tarangire River will be a common theme of this expedition as it is the life blood of the park where a large portion of the wildlife can be found.
Your day will start with breakfast at the lodge. Once breakfast is wrapping up, one of our representatives will meet your party for a debriefing. Next, our representative will take you to the trucks which are packed and ready for the safari. Our trucks will take you to Tarangire National Park. Afternoon lunch precedes the afternoon game drives and tours of the park. Once evening approaches, we will take you to your chosen lodging accommodations or campsite for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 3 will start with breakfast followed by a debriefing with one of our representative to discuss our journey to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Our team of guides have decades of experience with the Ngorongoro Crater and will be looking for lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, and a large variety of regional birds. Once at the Crater we will begin the search for game and start a game drive.
Following the game drives, we will ascend from the crater and make our way back to Arusha where dinner arrangements will be made near your chosen hotel accommodations (we have great recommendations for hotels).
