Tarangire – 2 NightsDrive from Arusha to Tarangire National Park (2 to 4 hours) You will be fascinated by Baobab Trees and huge herds of Elephant that will look tiny under these ancient trees. Although not as famous as other parks in Tanzania, Tarangire National Park is a great place to see giraffes, different types of antelopes, rhinos and leopards.

Lake Manyara / Ngorongoro Crater – 3 NightsDrive from Tarangire to Karatu (2 to 3 hours) Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is stunningly beautiful.

Enjoy the lovely views of the lake which attracts more than 400 species of birds, including flamingos and pelicans. Watching elephants, buffalo, and hippo in one of the mud pools provides for some wonderful safari moments, and the backdrop of the escarpment adds a spectacular component to the scenery. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the natural wonders of the world and the best place in Tanzania to see the big five, black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa. Also is home to strong populations of lion, leopard and hyena along with good herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra.
