Day 1 Ngorongoro Crater
The tour starts with lunch in Arusha town at 1230hrs. Drive to Ngorongoro Conservation area, arriving in time for dinner and overnight at the lodge.
Meals included: Lunch and dinner
Day 3 Lake Manyara National Park
Descend over 600 metres to the floor of the crater. Grassland blends into swamps, lakes, rivers, woodland and mountains – all a haven for wildlife, including the greatest predator population in Africa. The volcanic crater is jam packed with wildlife. Its pride and joy, however, is that it remains the last great wild refuge for black rhino. Explore the forest areas that are inhabited by monkeys and elephants, the lake area, where you may see the flamingos and the open savannah where the lions hunt. Search for black rhino, cheetah, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, hyena, hippos, giraffes, antelope, and rare leopards. Return to your lodge for lunch, before departing to Lake Manyara.
