3 Days Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro camping Safari Destination overview
Below are the areas you will visit during your five days safari tour in Tanzania with Tranquil Journeys
Your 3 days Tanzania camping safari begins when we pick you from Arusha and transfer you to Lake Manyara. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is recognized for its incredible beauty. You can see many game animals such as Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Impala, hippo and others and if you are lucky the famous tree climbing lions. Lake Manyara is a great bird sanctuary inhabited by many different species of water birds and huge flocks of flamingos.
Overnight at a public campsite at Lake Manyara.

Day 2Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast you proceed to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. After arrival you descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater considered as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls the Ngorongoro Crater has the highest wild animal density worldwide. Among the species are lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. You might expect to see the ‘Big Five’ in one day.
Overnight at Simba Public Campsite at Ngorongoro.
All meals included
