DAY 2: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Start your exploration of this beautiful country as you depart for Tarangire National Park. Arrive in time for lunch at Roika Tented Lodge nestled on the banks of Tarangire River. You will have an afternoon game viewing drive before returning for dinner and overnight.
This is a year-round park with distinct seasons offering different experiences, from dusty, dry and baking with animals clustered around the rapidly reducing river, to the fecund green season full of new-born animals and chattering birds. A lot of migratory animals aim to reside here during the dry season. You can see groups and herds of animals like 600 elephants followed by zebras, buffalos and oryxes who ventured from the Maasai to the Tarangire in search for water. There are also a few lions prowling around and looking for unsuspecting preys around the jungle. Some of the other animals that you may see here are antelopes, warthogs, hippos, cheetahs, leopards, foxes, jackals and waterbucks.

DAY 3: LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast, depart to the beautiful Lake Manyara, a shallow alkaline lake that shimmers in a cleft in the Great Rift Valley. You will arrive for lunch at your lodge followed by afternoon game drive. Spend the night at Lake Manyara Hotel which stands on the edge of the escarpment, overlooking the lake.
Tucked below the majesty of the Rift Valley wall, Lake Manyara National Park consists of a thin green band of forest, flanked by the sheer 600 m high red and brown cliffs of the escarpment on one side and by the white-hot shores of an ancient soda lake on the other. Acacia woodland shelters the park’s famous tree climbing lions, lying languidly among the branches in the heat of the day. Lake Manyara safaris offers many unique views including elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings or heading towards the water to drink or wash, and the rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for possible animal spotting.

Arrive and descend into the ‘8th Wonder of the World’, a unique biosphere that has remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. You will also have picnic lunch at the crater floor before later climbing up and transferred to Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge for overnight.
Enclosed within its towering walls are grasslands, swamps, forests, saltpans, a fresh water lake and a glorious variety of birdlife.
