4 DAYS LAKE MANYARA-NGORONGORO-TARANGIRE WILDLIFE LODGE TOUR
Day 1: Lake Manyara National Park
Depart Arusha in the morning for Lake Manyara, arrive by lunch time. Afternoon game drive. Dinner and overnight at Lodge.
Lake Manyara is also renown for its tree-climbing lions which spend most of the day spread out along the branches of acacia trees six to seven meters above the ground. The park contains the most pachyderms per km sq. in Tanzania. As visitors enter the gate, they pass into the lush forest, home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Buffalo and hippo lurch in the adjacent Hippo Pool. The vegetation eventually merges into flat topped acacia woodland where, in the heat of the day entire prides of lion can be seen stretched on the branches of these trees - a habit prevalent to Manyara lions.
Day 2: Ngorongoro crater.
After early breakfast depart for Ngorongoro crater, arriving in time for lunch. Afternoon game drive on the floor of the crater. Dinner and overnight at lodge.
Ngorongoro's caldera shelters the most beautiful wildlife haven on earth. The rich pasture and permanent water of the Crater floor supports a resident population of some 20,000 to 25,000 large mammals. They are not confined by the Crater walls, and can leave freely; they stay because conditions are favorable. Since most of the Crater floor is grassland, grazing animals predominate: gnu, zebra, gazelles, buffalo, eland and Coke's hartebeest and warthogs.
Day 3: Tarangire National Park.
After breakfast drive to Tarangire. Afternoon game drive in search of wildlife, meals and overnight at the lodge.
The park owes its name to Tarangire River, which flows across the area. It is characterized by dense vegetation of acacia and mixed woodland, the area around Tarangire River however, is dominated by huge baobab trees and palm trees to a lesser prominence, as well as black cotton grass. Tarangire offers the same attractions as other parks in the north. Its unique aspect is the annual animal immigration that takes place during the dry season.
