Day by Day Itinerary for Tanzania Camping Safari or Short Camping Safari

  • Arrival in Arusha, Tanzania

    You will be picked up from Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to your accommodation in Arusha town. During the short drive (approximately one hour) your driver/guide will brief you on your African Safari.

    Today you will spend your time at your leisure and relax for your upcoming exciting adventure.

    Accommodation: Natron palace hotel (bed and breakfast)

  • Day 1: Arusha Town – Lake Manyara National Park

    After a breakfast, your driver/guide will pick you up at the hotel and you will start your 2-hour journey to Lake Manyara National Park. Lake Manyara National Park is one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania.

    The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos which create an illusion of a beautiful pink shoreline.

    The Park is also home to more than 400 bird species as well as other wildlife. During your game drive watch for troops of blue monkeys and baboons in the forest, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests on the grassy plains and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands.

    The Park is famous for tree climbing lions and if you are lucky, you might see them lounging in the trees. From the open rooftop of your safari vehicle you will be able to comfortably watch the animals and absorb the stunning landscape of the Park and the Great Rift valley.

    After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch you will exit the Park and make your way to your accommodations in Karatu. On your way, you will stop at a viewpoint to enjoy the spectacular beauty of the lake and its surroundings.

    Dinner and overnight at Migombani camp

  • Day 2: Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

    After early morning breakfast, you will head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will descend the crater which is approximately 600 meters deep and its floor covers 100 square miles.

    The Ngorongoro crater is home to an amazing variety of animals. On your game drive, you may see all the Big Five ( lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard), Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, mountain reedbucks, and spotted hyenas.

  • Day 3: Karatu – Tarangire National Park – Arusha

    As well, the Park is home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are closely followed by a range of predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs though cheetahs are rarely spotted. After an extensive game drive, you will exit the park and head back to Arusha town.
