4-Days Wilderness Tanzania Camping Safari Tarangire Manyara Ngorongoro
4-Days Wilderness Tanzania Camping Safari Tarangire Manyara Ngorongoro Tour Overview
On this 4-Day Tanzania Budget Safari, we will be well taken care of and get to see some of the best things Tanzania has to offer. We see monkeys in the forest, lions in the trees, elephants among the acacias, and a huge variety of animals inside a collapsed volcano. We will also drive into the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater after visiting Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks.
A representative from Mangokili Adventures will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel in Arusha. There, you will spend the night, relax, and get ready for the adventures to come.

In the morning, we’ll pick you up from our lodge in Arusha. Our safari guide will be waiting for you with a big smile, excited for the day ahead. On the good tarmac road that takes us to Tarangire, we pass through Maasai plains with acacia trees here and there. As we drive quickly, we see many Maasai dressed in bright clothes walking along the side of the road, riding bikes, herding cattle, and pulling donkey carts.
Tarangire National Park is known for its large groups of elephants. It has a variety of habitats, including seasonal swamps, savanna, and the Tarangire River, which brings life to the park. We will look for animals like zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and giraffes from the open roof of the vehicle. We might catch a glimpse of Simba stalking his prey or leopard chilling out in the trees. After a long game drive, we leave the park and head to our nearby campsite for dinner and a night of rest. Our rooms are ready for us when we get there.
Budget Camping: Migombani Campsite
After breakfast on this day, we drive 120 km west of Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park, a small but diverse park. The shallow salt lake that gives the park its name floods and dries up with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos and more than 500 other bird species. We will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, buffalo, elephants, and, if we’re lucky, lions relaxing in the trees as we walk through the park. In the afternoon, we’ll go back to our lodge for dinner, maybe a digestif by the fire, conversation, and a mental review of the wilds we saw during the day before going to bed for a well-deserved rest.

After a very early breakfast, we leave our lodge and drive through the Rift Valley to the Ngorongoro highlands, which are cooler. The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest volcanic caldera. It was formed by the massive explosion of a volcano that was once taller than Kilimanjaro about two to three million years ago. It is almost 20 km wide and about 600 m deep, and it is known for its large number of animals, including the “Big Five”: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard. It is well known that it is one of the wonders of the world and that it is truly magnificent. In addition to the Big Five, animals like wildebeest, gazelles, reedbucks, and more than 500 types of birds are drawn to the springs. At a picnic site, we eat a delicious lunch before going back into the crater to see more animals. In the evening, we leave the crater and drive up the steep, winding road back to Arusha. Our adventure is over, but we have memories of the African wilds to carry with us for the rest of our lives.
