The diversity of African national parks
Whether Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro or Tarangire, each of these national parks offers an enormous variety of animals and plants. Enjoy the fascinating landscape of Lake Manyara with its countless flamingos. Explore one of the most fertile inactive volcanic craters in the world in Ngorongoro National Park. And watch one of the largest elephant populations in Africa in Tarangire National Park.
You spend the nights on the day of arrival and departure at Chanya Lodge (previously Mountain Inn), near the city of Moshi. You can choose whether you want to stay in tents or in a lodge during the safari.
Day 1: Kilimanjaro Airport – Moshi
Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be welcomed by your driver. Together you drive in the direction of Moshi (about 60 minutes drive). You are already expected at Chanya Lodge (formerly Mountain Inn), which is located in a quiet area close to the centre of the small town.
After you have checked in, the rest of the day is at your free disposal and can be used for exploring the place or relaxing at the pool. Dinner will take place at the lodge but can also be arranged outside of the lodge (own organization necessary).
Day 2: Moshi – Lake Manyara
The first day of your safari starts at about 8 am. Our guide will pick you up at Chanya Lodge.
Together you will start the 200 km long drive to Lake Manyara National Park, which takes about 4.5 hours. After arrival and a small lunch break you will start your first game drive through the Lake Manyara National Park together with our guide. Shortly after your arrival in the national park you will see lush forests of acacia and mahogany trees. You should have your camera nearby for the coming hours and keep an eye out for giraffes, buffalos, impalas, baboons and other species of monkeys.
With a bit of luck, you will also discover the climbing lions that live here, although they are very shy. Lake Manyara is really unique. Especially at the appropriate time of year it offers an incredible natural spectacle, when the lake’s shores turn pink at the middle/end of the rainy seasons (April/May and November/December) due to the thousands of flamingos.
In the evening you will go to your chosen accommodation (Mto wa Mbu Camp or Karatu Simba Lodge), where a delicious dinner awaits you and strengthens you for the following day!
Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater
Your day begins early with a big breakfast. Together with our guide you will then make your way to the rim of Ngorongoro crater and drive down into the crater shortly after your arrival.
Ngorongoro is the largest inactive volcanic crater in the world with an intact ecosystem. The Ngorongoro Crater was created by the collapse of a former volcanic mountain. The crater has a massive bottom of about 264 square kilometers (about 3 times the size of Paris) with a depth of over 600 meters.
During the ride in the crater floor you will see again the breathtaking variety of Africa’s wilderness. African elephants, buffalos, black rhinos, hippos, hyenas, cheetahs, lions and dozens of other species await you.
In the afternoon you then continue to your chosen accommodation (Mto wa Mbu Camping or Karatu Simba Lodge), where you will have the opportunity to review the events of the day during a few quiet minutes. The day ends with a rich dinner.
Day 4: Tarangire – Moshi
The game drive of the last day of your safari will start early after your breakfast. Today our guide will take you to Tarangire National Park.
Tarangire National Park is one of the most famous national parks in Tanzania and is especially known for its diverse flora and fauna. On the almost 3,000 square kilometers you will find different vegetation zones. In addition, Tarangire National Park is home to the largest population of wild animals after the Serengeti. A highlight are the many elephant herds. Therefore, chances are very high to observe these graceful animals in the wild.
The national park is named after the Tarangire River, which runs through the park and is used as a water source by a variety of animals such as giraffes, elephants, antelopes and lions.
In the early afternoon you return to Moshi. After a 4-hour drive you will reach Chanya Lodge, where you will spend your last night after a relaxed dinner.
Day 5: Moshi – Kilimanjaro Airport
After a good night’s sleep and finishing breakfast, you will check out of the lodge. If you have further activities planned, you can continue your individual travel program accordingly. Alternatively, your driver will drive you to Kilimanjaro International Airport at the appropriate time and you will travel home. Whether during the return or onward journey: Take a few quiet minutes to review your experiences!
